There’re various reasons why sunscreen should always be the last step in your daily skincare ritual. The most serious is naturally that sunscreen is an essential product to prevent skin cancer, but a generous layer of sunscreen can also protect your skin from other damaging factors such as sun spots, sunburns, and premature signs of aging.
A sunscreen can filter out UV rays via either chemical or physical filters. Whereas physical filters remain on the skin’s surface as a mirror to deflect the rays, the chemical filters absorb into the skin to convert rays into harmless heat waves. Every woods_ sunscreen is created with chemical filters.
Choose the right sunscreen for your skin
Sunscreen is necessary for every skin type, but it can be beneficial to have your skin’s needs in mind when choosing yours.
Sunscreens not only possess protecting properties, but they also contain hydrating ingredients that can effectively treat dry skin. For example, woods_ sunscreens contain both vitamin E and organic aloe vera, which offer soothing, cooling, and smoothing benefits to the skin.
Oily and breakout-prone skin?
It can be beneficial for oily skin types to choose a lightweight formula that won’t clog pores but still provides the necessary protection. With a woods_ sunscreen, the lightweight formula melts easily into the skin. No white casts, no sticky residue, no clogged pores – it simply goes on smoothly.
Sunscreen for sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin means attention towards ingredient lists. At woods_, you’ll find solely fragrance-free sunscreens containing blends of natural, organic, and highly effective ingredients that’ll work to anti-irritate and soothe the skin.
How to get the most out of your sunscreen
When, how, and how much sunscreen you apply matters if you want maximum effect. These factors are actually vital for your skin to receive optimal protection.
However, it’s always a good idea to read the guide on the specific product packaging to ensure that you’re using it correctly and make sure your skin can enjoy all the benefits.

When should I use sunscreen?
Unfortunately, many people believe that sunscreen is only necessary when in direct sunlight. But actually, the sun’s UV rays can easily penetrate both clouds and for example reflect in water and snow. Sunscreen is therefore also necessary during the colder months and is always a good way to make sure your skin stays protected.
How often should I apply sunscreen?
For maximum effect, sunscreen should be applied every other hour, especially after swimming, sweating, or if you’re in direct sunlight. If your sun exposure is minimal during the day, another layer might not be necessary.
Which SPF level should I use?
SPF is short for ‘sun protection factor’ and defines the level of protection that is applied to your skin. These sun filters are also what block the sun’s rays from damaging the skin. What factor you choose to use should depend on what your skin is subjected to during the day. If your day includes low sun exposure, SPF30 should be sufficient protection. On the contrary, if you’re going to be outside for longer periods of time and especially in direct or strong sun, we always recommend that you cover your skin with a protective layer of SPF50. Generally, if you’re in doubt, the safest choice is always SPF50, as this will provide the skin with the best protection – and you can never get too much sun protection.
How much sunscreen should I apply?
How much sunscreen you need to apply can, naturally, vary from person to person. However, a rule of the thumb is that you should use about a hand full to cover your body sufficiently. For your face, it’s recommended to use about an amount equivalent to a teaspoon. The essential part is that you’re sure that the sunscreen is evenly applied on your whole body and face.
