Health and Beauty Tip -- Sunscreen vs. Sunblock

on

Published in Women's Health and Beauty Tip

What's the difference? Sunscreen absorbs UV rays and scatters them, while sunblock reflects them entirely. Sometimes sunscreens with SPF numbers of 15 or higher are advertised as sunblock -- but sunblock doesn't need an SPF number, as it reflects all rays. If you burn easily, go with sunblock; if you want a tan, buy sunscreen and make sure the SPF number is right for your skin.
