I’m always being asked about the secret behind my flawless skin or why I look so young at my middle age. And, my answer is: It’s Sunscreen, Sunscreen and yes, Sunscreen. I apply sunscreen every morning, whether I am indoor or step out for my workplace and the application is not restricted only to Summer or Sunny days. Summer or Winter, Monsoon or Spring, cloudy or sunny morning, the need to shield our skin from the dangerous rays of Sun is essential. Sunscreen blocks the harsh rays from penetrate into the skin and thus protects the skin from signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, prevents acne or other skin concerns, sunburn or suntan, enhances skin health and even protects skin from the dreadful disease skin cancer.
So, Sunscreen is more a necessity than mere cosmetics. And, when you get that from one of your favorite brand, how do you feel? Yep, I am talking about Greenberry Organics and they have sent their newly launched Bio Active Bright Day Cream SPF 25+ PA+++ UVA UVB.

What is SPF or Sun Protection Factor?
SPF or Sun Protection Factor indicates how much protection does the sunscreen product provides to protect your skin from UVB rays, in other words the burning rays. UVB rays are responsible for sunburn, skin damages and even skin cancer. The number after SPF indicates how much time you’ll be able to stay under the sun.
A higher SPF will of course give better protection against UVB, but usually, SPF 15 to 30 would be sufficient for daily use as my dermatologist advised me. Actually the frequency of application is more important than the numerical digits. So, it is advisable to reapply every two hours to get maximum protection.
What is PA+++?
PA is a rating system (introduced by Japan/Korea), that shows the rate of protection a sunscreen product provides against UVA rays that cause premature aging, photo aging, saggy skin etc. PA+ means the sunscreen provides some protection against UVA rays, PA++indicates moderate protection while PA+++ shows very good protective abilities against UVA rays. Since UVA causes long term skin damage, it is therefore advisable to go for sunscreens with the highest PA rating.

The silky, light-as-air formula; and the lightest, most intoxicating scent of Olive oil Olive oil that disappears as you apply on your skin. Though the cream is a bit thick but doesn’t make the T-zone of my combination skin oily. And I don’t feel any greasiness too. It absorbs into the skin immediately after I apply and doesn’t need much massage too. Generally, Sunscreen creams give my face a pale look.
