Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a vital step in everyone’s skincare routine, and finding the right sunscreen for your skin type and lifestyle is easy with THE ICONIC Beauty. Browse our ever-growing selection of sunscreens from leading brands online, to find your next everyday hero.

A good sunscreen can help to prevent sunburn, premature aging and the development of skin cancer, so it’s imperative to incorporate one into your daily skincare routine. Sunscreens can help to protect from two types of UV rays - UVA and UVB. With all the information surrounding sunscreens online, it can be hard to decipher the difference between these two types of UV rays and what they mean for your skin. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin and can potentially cause the appearance associated with premature aging, while UVB rays are what burn the top layer of the skin. Finding a sunscreen that helps protect from both types of UV rays is the holy grail of sunscreen shopping.

There are two main types of sunscreen available on the market - physical and chemical. Physical sunscreens are the typical sunscreens that sit on top of your skin to actively block UV rays, while chemical formulas penetrate deeper into the skin to absorb damaging rays. There are pros and cons to each, depending on your skin type - physical sunscreens tend to suit all skin types, while chemical sunscreens may irritate more sensitive skin.
