Sunscreen vs Sunblock

Both sunscreen and sunblock protect us from the sun’s UV rays. However they’re not the same thing and they work in different ways.

Sunscreen is designed to be absorbed into the skin and needs ten minutes to get working. Sunblock works immediately – it has minerals in it which reflect or absorb the sun’s ray.

Which is right for you? Immediate application and total block or wait ten minutes and get a tan?

Like most things, there’s a choice. You’ll only find out how effective either choice is once you’ve tried it out.
