How The Sun Sees You Video: The Shocking Effects of No Sunscreen, How To Treat Sunburn, Pick Sunscreen Protection, & Our Ratings For Sunblock

Close

Have you seen the new viral video showing the true effects of not wearing sunscreen?

OMG, the video is a serious skin care shocker and wake-up call for anyone who doesn't protect their skin!

Many of these people appear to have healthy skin and are shocked to see the amount of freckles, wrinkles, and dark spots on their face. Well duh! What do you expect if you aren't wearing any sunblock at all?

Sometimes visuals work better and boy does this video scare everyone into wearing sunscreen.

It's time for us to stop believing that our skin is safe as long as it's not burned. The reality is, we need to wear sunscreen every day of the year, not just during summer. And ladies, if you think your foundation's SPF has you covered, think again. Your skin is still at risk of damage.

After watching this much-needed video, check out a few of our picks for SPF protection:

Pick #1: MelanSol Sunscreen

MelanSol is an all-natural, toxin-free and vegan sunscreen that protects, conditions, and hydrates the skin. It's perfect for every day wear thanks to it's lightweight, non-greasy formula that works great under makeup for women, and doesn't have that unpleasant "sunscreen" smell. Try it in SPF 10, 20, and 30. Get it for $24.

Pick #2: Cotz Pure

Cotz is another great sunscreen option. They even make a facial sunscreen to match your skintone that leaves you with a sheer matte finish. The formulas are 100% free of chemical sunscreens, oils, fragrances too. The formula contains minerals which sit invisibly on top of skin and function like thousands of mirrors to deflect harmful UVA-UVB rays. Try it for $20.

Pick #3: Cetaphil

Who hasn't tried the Cetaphil brand and loved it? Not only for the price, but for that inexplicable glow the facial moisturizer leaves you with. Not to mention it's got SPF 15 to boot. A drugstore favorite of many, consider this $11 formula too for filtering out the sun's rays to help prevent skin damage, freckling, and uneven coloration.
