Picking the right sunscreen can sometimes be a daunting task. There are often many different types to choose from and not offer the same protection.

To be on the safe side you should choose a sunscreen that are labeled broad spectrum protection which means they offer protection from both UVB and UVA rays. Also, look for ones that have any of the following active ingredients: ecamsule, avobenzone, oxybenzone, titanium dioxide, sulisobenzone or zinc oxide.

Overexposure to UV rays can cause significant damage to the skin, so finding the right sunscreen is essential if you are planning to spend time outdoors.
