Did you know that there is a difference between sunscreen and sunblock? Furthermore, even though it has the word “sun” in the name, our Before and After Sun falls into neither of these categories. Here’s what you need to know to make an informed decision about protecting your skin from the sun.
Definition of sunscreen
As the name suggests, sunscreen doesn’t block anything from reaching the skin. Rather, it filters or screens the rays coming into contact with your skin so that the sunlight is let through while the harmful rays are reflected back instead of penetrating the skin. Sunscreen is usually preferred when people want to lower their risk of sunburn or skin cancer but still want to get a tan.
Definition of sunblock
Sunblock, as it sounds, blocks the sun’s rays from ever reaching the surface of the skin. This topical product sits on top of the skin rather than being absorbed. This allows it to completely protect the skin. However, even with the most careful of applications, it is common for people to still have some sun exposure even when using sunblock. The higher the SPF rating, the more effective it will be.
CellQuest Before and After Sun
CellQuest Before and After Sun is only SPF 2, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good addition to your skincare routine. This product hydrates the skin and gives it a lot of nutrients important for protecting and repairing the skin. With its use, you could further reduce the risk of red, irritated, or sunburned skin.
