This is quite a general question we all do have! And with summers coming soon, I think most of us do have a splashing plan of getting into cool pools or a dive into a beach. And once into it, we do know what we are next upto. Tanning! Thats terribly most irritating thing to face.
So, we need to take a bit of care before you want to jump in there! Part of this and most importantly, a sunscreen is a must!
Be it due to the chlorinated water in the pools or the salt water of the beach, the UVA & UVB rays from the sun together gets the skin tanned. And one of the unknown thing is that, the skin gets much easily tanned when its wet. So, take a sunscreen and then run for a splash!
And note a point that a Sunscreen need not be mentioned WATERPROOF. Reason: Generally the sunscreen products label will be governed by FDA which states that sunscreens need not be labelled as “waterproof” or “sweat proof” because it is misleading in few turns. The company can however label the product as “water- resistant”.
