According to research, women are more effective than men in using sunscreen. This thereby reduces the chance of getting skin diseases. The stats are too dramatically big to believe around 55%men bear skin cancer. 

This was just an overview of what’s happening around us and the impact today’s environment can cause on our skin if not taken proper care of. Without any doubt, our ladies are always on top when it comes to a skincare routine, hair care or any related thing. But men are still lacking a bit. Let us check out today how important it is to wear sunscreen for chaps.

Why do I even need sunscreen?

This is the most asked question whenever you ask a guy to wear sunscreen. But it is time to answer back that it is important to protect yourselves from the harmful UV rays, which cause severe skin problems. You won’t believe it, but the sun rays entering your window can lead to skin cancer too. So now what say do you find it important? 

Maybe yes, but I have more reasons to tell you which sunburn. This is another key reason to use sunscreen while stepping out. (if still no, then suffer the red rashes of your choice).

There might be people who don’t like doing extra with their skin or face and are happy with the moisturizer. For them, I would strongly suggest choosing a moisturizer with SPF protection. They are lighter in texture and give you proper coverage. 


The tinted moisturizer from Boticoman not only deeply hydrates the skin but also contains SPF 30 sun protection. This one is from one of the trusted brands when it comes to men’s cosmetics in India. This sebum-controlling tinted sun shield doesn’t leave streaks or buildup and is perfect for Asian skin types.

I think so far you would have understood the need for sunscreen. So here comes the next frequently asked question-

When to apply sunscreen?

This is important and you must pay attention to these guys. It is not like you standing on your terrace garden and suddenly you feel like it’s much sunny here, so you picked up your sunscreen, applied and done. No, this is not correct. Or for instance, you are on the beach enjoying your sunbath and in the middle of it sunscreen flashes in your mind.  Suddenly you applied and started to think you are safe. But no man, the risk is still up.

Always keep in mind to apply a gentle amount of sunscreen 10-15 minutes before stepping into the sun. Also, not only apply on your face but on all the other body parts that are exposed to the sun. 

Do not forget to rub and massage a bit. So it gets absorbed. You may also need to re-apply every 4 hrs.

Now some of you our cool dude can pick up a question that we don’t burn. Why do we even need sunscreen?

Sunscreen, is it for brownish skin? 

It is actually an obvious question, with a valid reason that darker skin has a good ability to fight the sun rays. 

But let me put light upon the fact that you might not be getting sunburn or rashes, but the harmful rays can still affect your skin. The UVA and UVB rays can damage any kind of skin. Therefore it becomes necessary to understand the necessity of sunscreen for every skin type. The researchers and doctors have found that melanoma, a severe skin disease, in persons of dark/ brown colour, is often diagnosed at a later stage and thus commonly results in a worse prognosis.

So it is never late to go for something better. 

Fallow a sunscreen routine

I hope till now you have understood the need for sunscreen for your skin. So it is good to add this to your daily skincare routine. It is not only for the guy but also for our beautiful ladies out there, a simple reminder to not skip your sunscreen. 

It is always necessary to wear sunscreen and protect your skin while stepping out. No matter if you’re walking or driving. The more you protect and cover your skin the more it will stay healthy. Also, here I do not mention stopping the intake of your vitamin D from the sun. It is extremely important. A little conclusion is sunlight is healthy, but it does not come alone. It gives a free ride to harmful UVA and UVB rays that can damage your skin.

This was a short reminder for you of how important it is to wear sunscreen both for men and women. So don’t skip and go for it.
