Which is the Best Sunscreen for Punta Cana

When looking for the best sunscreen the primordial thing is to take your time and read the labels carefully. There are many lotions on the market to choose from. You should wear sunscreen because it does protects from the harmful rays of the sun, which could cause sunburn among other things.

The ozone layer is so damaged with the constant contamination in the planet that being protected from the sun is imperative to actually being able to prevent several skin conditions and that is why you should wear sunscreen. It works by creating a protective layer on the areas that have it applied by blocking the UVA and UVB rays, which is something that it definitely should have.

Although many studies indicate that using sunscreen all days is damaging to our health, it can prevent burns if you will be under the sun the whole day on your vacation.  

Is fundamental to avoid being out in the direct sun from 11am to 3pm.

When to apply sunscreen

It should be used just before being exposed to the strong rays of the sun. You should use it especially if you tend to be outdoors or practicing sports under the sun.

If you are on the beach or pool; dry yourself a bit and reapply the waterproof lotion (30 spf or higher) on the uncovered areas to keep the maximum sun protection.

When traveling to Punta Cana is better to get one in your home country before arriving as it can get a bit expensive to obtain at the hotels.

Best sunscreen for face 

For the face the sunscreen should be hypoallergenic and also oil free so that it doesn't cause allergies on sensitive skin or worsen acne problems. It can be used under makeup, better if light and not heavy. A good idea is to use a natural slightly tinted moisturizer that comes with sun protection as well instead of using ordinary makeup. Most of them have a 15 spf, which is fine for regular wear, unless you are going to be a lot of time on the water during the day, in that case one with 30 spf would be better.

Natural sunscreen

Since kids have a very delicate skin is recommended to use organic sunscreen on them. While is true that the natural sunscreens are not on the cheap side they will have the safest ingredients, which is the main reason to use them. If you want a healthier alternative or are environmentally conscious, look for the ones that have the most certified organic ingredients on their labels. The common ones are the mineral sunscreens that include some essential oils, like sunflower oil for example.

Even if on your daily life you are a construction worker, or just like to enjoy weekends on the park the skin will get damaging rays and it should be taken care of; so don't forget to cover yourself as much as possible there and in your next vacation in Punta Cana.
