the sunscreen routine - for you

Skin Type

Different skin types require different types of sunscreen.

  • Normal Skin

    This type of skin is well-balanced and has a good amount of moisture and oil. It appears smooth and has an even texture with no visible blemishes, pores or flakiness.

    What you should be looking for 
  • Dry Skin

    This type of skin has a lack of moisture and oil, leading to a tight, rough and flaky appearance. Dry skin can feel itchy and uncomfortable, and is more prone to premature aging and fine lines.

    What you should be looking for 
  • Oily Skin

    This type of skin produces excessive sebum or oil, causing a shiny appearance, large pores and an uneven texture. Oily skin is more prone to acne and breakouts due to the excess oil clogging the pores.

    What you should be looking for 
  • Combination Skin

    This skin type has both oily and dry areas, with an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and dry cheeks. Combination skin can be tricky to manage as different areas of the face require different treatments.

    What you should be looking for 
  • Sensitive Skin

    This skin type is easily irritated and reacts to various products and environmental factors. Sensitive skin can appear dry, red and itchy, and may be prone to conditions such as eczema, rosacea and dermatitis.

    To determine your skin type, you can follow these simple steps 

Skin Colors

Fitzpatrick scale

The Fitzpatrick scale is used to determine the appropriate level of sun protection and to guide the selection of cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, laser treatments, and other skincare procedures.

It's important to note that skin type is only one factor to consider when selecting skincare products and treatments, and that individual variations in skin sensitivity, allergies, and other factors should also be taken into account.

  • Type 1

    People with very fair skin, blonde or red hair, and blue or green eyes. They always burn in the sun and never tan.

  • Type 2

    1. Type II: People with fair skin, blonde or light brown hair, and blue, green or hazel eyes. They usually burn in the sun and may tan slightly.
  • Type 3

    People with fair to medium skin, brown hair, and hazel or brown eyes. They sometimes burn in the sun and usually tan.

  • Type 4

    People with olive or light brown skin, dark brown hair, and brown eyes. They rarely burn in the sun and tan easily.

  • Type 5

    People with dark brown skin, dark hair, and brown eyes. They rarely or never burn in the sun and tan easily.

  • Type 6

    People with very dark skin, black hair, and brown eyes. They never burn in the sun and are at a very low risk of developing skin cancer.

If you have fair skin, you may want to use a higher SPF sunscreen, such as SPF 50 or higher. People with darker skin tones generally have more melanin, which provides some natural protection from the sun's UV radiation. However, it's still important to use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30, especially if you will be spending a lot of time outdoors during peak sun hours.

Regardless of your skin color, it's important to apply sunscreen correctly and frequently, and to take other measures to protect your skin from the sun, such as seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, and avoiding sun exposure during peak hours.

UV Factor

Ultraviolet Radiation 

The UV factor is affected by various factors, such as the angle of the Sun's rays, the amount of ozone in the atmosphere, cloud cover, altitude, and pollution.

UV levels tend to be higher at higher altitudes, closer to the equator, and when the Sun is higher in the sky. Additionally, during certain times of the year, such as the summer months, UV levels can be higher due to the Earth's tilt relative to the Sun.

Therefore, it is important to be aware of the UV levels in your area and take appropriate measures to protect yourself from the harmful effects of UV radiation, such as wearing protective clothing, using sunscreen, and avoiding direct exposure to the sun during peak UV hours.
