Sun block comes in the form of cream, lotion, spray and gel of different brands which helps its users to reflect or absorb sun’s ultra violet rays radiation when you are exposed to sun directly. All the brands available in the market hold a SPF rating stating a figure to which it is effective. A user can determine how long their sun block will be effective by multiplying the SPF factor by the length of time it takes for him or her to suffer a burn without sunscreen. For instance, if you normally develop sunburn in 10 minutes without wearing a sunscreen, a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 will protect you for 150 minutes. No sunscreen is completely capable of blocking all wavelengths of UV light. It depends from one person to the other as to how much of a SPF rating is required. Dermatologists recommend broad spectrum sun block with UVA and UVB protection, a SPF rating of at least 30, in a form that is gentle enough for daily use and good for adventure sport people.
