9 Best Sunscreen Products Which Really Have SPF Protection to It

By Melissa Snyte
 

Sunscreen minimizes your skin’s exposure to free radical damage caused by UV rays. Free radicals diminish production of collagen, which is responsible for the skin’s strength and elasticity. Opt for a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 that is also broad-spectrum. This means it can block both UVA rays (cancer-causing and speeds up aging) and UVB rays (those that burn).
