From spending time at your local pool to going on a much-needed vacay with your family, there's so much to do to fill up the warm weather days. Here are 7 essentials to keep you equipped this summer!
1.2 Sunscreens vs Sunblocks–
The main difference in sunscreen and sunblock lies is the way they protect the skin from UV rays. Sunblock is so named because it literally blocks UV rays by forming a physical shield, while a sunscreen contains chemicals that absorb UV rays before your skin can.
Sunscreen and sunblock also have different application methods. Because sunscreen only works when it’s absorbed by the skin, it needs to be rubbed in. But you can simply slather sunblock on since it acts as a physical barrier. You do have to apply sunblock evenly, though, since UV light can hit any exposed parts of the skin, no matter how small. Because sunblock isn’t rubbed in, it normally leaves a white cast on the skin, while sunscreen disappears completely.
