Erythema or more commonly known as sunburn is the redness, cell damage, and dilation of blood vessels in the skin.
In fact, when you are shopping for an SPF, you should get a sunscreen that protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
SPFs are available in two different formulas, a Physical formula, and chemical formula.
Physical SPF sits on the surface of the skin and reflects the rays of sunshine away from your skin! Physical SPF is made from the minerals Zinc-oxide and Titanium-dioxide.
