Natural sunscreen oils are much better to use as sun protection compared to artificial sunscreen creams. These oils contain Sun Protection Factor (SPF) that helps to protect the skin from darkening. The SPF number gives you the estimated amount of time that you can stay exposed to the sun without getting burned. For example, an SPF of 15 would allow you to be exposed to the sun fifteen times longer than you could without protection. Some oils have a natural SPF in them and most of these natural sunscreen oils also have other benefits on the skin.
