The Ultimate Guide to Sun Protection: COOLA Sunscreen SPF for Radiant Skin

SPF is extremely important for your skin’s health, so we partner with COOLA to bring you the best in sun protection.

Summertime in the Myrtle Beach area is all about sun, surf, and sand. Sun protection is a priority for beach babes who want to keep their skin healthy and radiant. Sunscreen products are essential for preventing damage to the skin, like painful sunburns, sun spots, and fine lines and wrinkles.


Broad Spectrum

Not all sunscreens are equal, however, so look closely at the label! If a sunscreen is labeled “broad spectrum” it offers protection against both ultraviolet A (those rays responsible for premature aging) and ultraviolet B (the rays that lead to painful sunburn). Both types of UV exposure may cause skin cancer. If a product carries the term “broad spectrum” on its label you can be assured you are fully protected. 



Another concern of sun-savvy consumers is sunscreen’s SPF. According to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas, you should never use sunscreen with an SPF below 30. The SPF in your sunscreen is the formulation that protects your skin against the sun’s harmful rays. 


Aging Gracefully

Did you know that up to 80% of visible aging signs, such as wrinkles and age spots, are caused by the sun? Aging gracefully is about maintaining healthy habits, and one of the most critical steps you can take is to protect your skin from UV rays. Incorporating broad-spectrum sunscreen into your daily routine- and remembering to re-apply- is crucial! 


Ocean Friendly

Many contaminants in our oceans are harming the coral reefs and ocean life. This includes industrial pollutants, plastics, and yes, even sunscreens. Many of the sunscreens on the market today are made using chemicals like Homosalate, Octocrylene, Octisalate, and Avobenzone. These chemicals absorb the sun’s harmful UV rays and then release them back into the air. Although they have FDA approval, if these chemicals break down, they are released into the ocean when you swim and are linked to aquatic toxicity. 

The better choice for you and the environment? Mineral-based sunscreens. Mineral sunscreens block harmful rays by creating a barrier that reflects them away from your delicate skin. Two of the top minerals for sun protection? Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Always practice sun safety and protect our reefs too.
