Looking for the perfect sunscreen for men? Look no further than Solar Armor. Water resistant up to 80 minutes and featuring a 55 SPF, this natural, non-greasy formula goes on smooth and stays on long. Water resistant up to 80 minutes, Solar Armor not only protects the skin from both UVA and UVB rays but also has anti-aging elements and actually repairs your skin’s previous damage while working to prevent new damage from occurring.
This isn’t breaking news, but men and women are built differently (men have 25% thicker skin). When it comes to caring for their bodies, they have separate needs. That’s why deodorants, hair-care products, etc. are, oftentimes, created specifically for men or women. While any of these products can be used by both sexes, for best results it is smart to use products made for your specific gender. Sunscreen is no different.
Unlike regular sunscreen, sport sunscreens are usually tested to measure how water resistant a formula is before its Sun Protection Factor (SPF) starts to wear off. While such testing is tailored for prolonged water immersion, such as sunscreen for swimmers, it can also reflect sweat resistance.
As defined by Mayo Clinic, "the term water resistant means that the SPF is maintained for up to 40 minutes while swimming or sweating. Very water resistant means the SPF is maintained for 80 minutes."
Here at GOA Skincare, we teamed-up with AMA Testing Labs to design a trial that would measure the performance of our MICROCRYSTALLINE formula. After testing the formula, AMA Labs confirmed our sports sunscreen to be water resistant for over 8 hours. This test defined our MICROCRYSTALLINE products as some of the best sports sunscreen for water immersion.
These compounds help protect the body’s cells from damage caused by outside forces. Although antioxidants naturally exist within the human body, they are also found in certain plants, vegetables, foods, and other products. Certain sunscreens also possess antioxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which work to reduce the effect of the sun’s rays on your skin, ultimately minimizing or eliminating the damage they cause.
To properly shield your skin from the sun, you must guard against both UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays are what actually causes your skin to burn, while UVA rays create wrinkles and premature aging. A broad spectrum sunscreen simply means it has ingredients and properties to effectively protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays.
By now you should be well aware that overexposure to the sun can contribute to skin cancer. While there is no way to prevent skin cancer, wearing sunscreen when outdoors can absolutely reduce your risk of getting it. It is estimated that 20% of Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their lives, so there is a real threat and taking proper precautionary steps is wise.
So many men’s sunscreens are greasy. That’s not a good look and it definitely doesn’t feel good. To look and feel your best, use a sunscreen with a non-greasy formula that goes on smooth and doesn’t alter the color of your skin. What a coincidence…Solar Armor does that!
