9 Body Sprays With SPF That Make Sunscreen Reapplication A Breeze

That viral image of an old lady with a smooth face and wrinkly neck has single-handedly convinced us to take our sunscreens down to our necks. Well, I recently came across a similar picture where the part of the leg covered with pants was way smoother than the exposed part. Now if sun spots, exposure to harmful UV rays and premature ageing aren’t reasons enough to use a body sunscreen, that image sure is!

Body sunscreen is of paramount importance for maintaining healthy skin and preventing a host of skin-related issues. Besides premature ageing, wrinkles and sun spots, regular use of sunscreen also helps reduce the risk of skin cancer. But applying sunscreen all over the body can be a tedious task and that’s why, sunscreen sprays have gained immense popularity.

Apart from being a convenient and effective way to apply sun protection, they also often have a lightweight and non-greasy texture, making them more comfortable for those who dislike the feeling of heavy creams. Also, because sunscreen’s effectiveness diminishes over time due to sweat and natural wear, sunscreen sprays come in handy for reapplication.

Though sprays are a convenient format, some people may be wary of using them on the skin because they contain a certain amount of alcohol. To put their doubts to rest, the percentage of alcohol present in these sunscreen sprays is mostly safe for the skin. The smell is also disguised by added fragrance. Moreover, all alcohols are not harmful to the skin. In fact, many cleansing lotions, moisturisers and other skincare products contain fatty alcohols that are good for the skin. But if you’re still worried about the alcohol content in sunscreen spray, a patch test and consultation with your dermatologist are always a good idea.

However, it is important to note that sunscreen spray does not give complete protection as traditional sunscreen may do. So it’s best to stick to sprays only for reapplication and prefer creams as the first SPF layer. So, here are a few sunscreen sprays that’ll make the process of re-applying sunscreen on the body fuss-free.
