What’s the difference between sunscreen and sunblock?

OMG! We are constantly hearing about the dangers of the sun! The menacing UV rays which can damage our skin! There are so many products out there that market themselves with SPF. Do I need everyday sunscreen? Should I use a sunblock instead? What’s the best sunscreen? What SPF do I need?

This can get really confusing, very fast. So what do you do? Well first, let's figure out how sunscreen works vs. sunblock.

Sunscreen is usually the most commonly used sun protector. The products in sunscreen, filters and absorbs the UV rays before it damages your skin.

While sunblock has mineral components which literally blocks or reflects the UV rays. If you are looking for an everyday sunscreen or a sunblock that you can use on your face, you HAVE to check out the SPF booster from CicaMed.

This is one of the few products on the market that is for all skin types. This product has filters that literally protect you from BOTH UVA and UVB rays while nourishing your skin with anti-aging properties. It has Triple protection against UV rays, antioxidants to protect against free radicals, and peptides to strengthen the skin and reverse sun damage while preventing future sun damage.

So overall this is a great product to pack especially when you are vacationing in Miami or skiing in Colorado.
