Sweat and water resistance, long-lasting protection, and breathability—these are all attributes that every guy is after when it comes to men’s sunscreen lotion. Men sweat more, especially in the midst of extreme sports that leaves them exposed to ultraviolet rays, so this sunblock should be designed to outlast excess perspiration.
Whether you are hitting the beach or simply running errands, sunscreen is essential for any outdoor exposure.
1. Prevent skin cancer: if you are going to have one reason to use sunscreen, let this be it. Skin cancer can be fatal when it progresses, so stop it in its tracks early with sunscreen lotion.
2. Protect against long-term sun damage: regular exposure to the sun’s powerful rays will age your skin drastically.
It’s always a smart idea to test sunscreens in an inconspicuous place (before you head outside). By doing so, you can tell if the sunscreen you selected is right for you. The last thing you want is to be under the sun with a sunblock that feels too heavy, gives your skin a bad reaction, or isn’t absorbing properly.
No one wants to feel slimy when applying sunscreen. A greasy formula can mean many things like the brand is skimping on ingredients to produce quantity, not quality sunscreen. It could also mean the ingredients are not ones that your skin’s biological makeup easily absorbs.
Just because a formula sits heavily on your skin doesn’t mean it is designed to be more protective than a lightweight counterpart. It is possible to have a lightweight sunscreen that exceeds your expectations of durability, providing a long-lasting protection in the sun. A sunblock that feels thick and heavy on the surface of your skin could mean your body isn’t absorbing it, and that’s not what you want when it comes to UV protection.
Perhaps one of the biggest complaints when it comes to men’s sunscreen lotion is the overwhelming scent that some brands mix in with their formula. Sunscreen is not meant to be perfume, it’s meant to protect against harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause skin cancer. Sunblock for men should have a subtle yet masculine scent.
