The Sun And Skin

19 Nov

When we are outdoors, we all know that we must protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Of course it is impossible to avoid the sun – who do you fancy house closed in the summer when it feels so great to get outdoors? Furthermore, not everything related to the sun is bad: Sunlight helps our bodies make vitamin D. So follow these tips when you’re on the outside to control exposure to the sun:

Wear a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15, even if it’s cloudy or you do not plan on spending much time outdoors. If you get wet, for example when you go swimming in the sea or an outdoor pool, repeat the application of sunscreen (even if it is resistant to water) every 2 or 3 hours.

Choose a sunscreen that retains both UVA and UVB rays. Search terms such as “broad spectrum protection” or UVA protection than an SPF or IP 15 or higher. Choose a sunscreen that is “not acnegenic” or “non-comedogenic” to help keep clean the pores of the skin.

The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 am and 4 pm, so that, during those hours, reapply the sunscreen frequently and, if possible, protects you the sun. If your shadow is longer than your height, will be safer in the sun (anyway, then you should also wear sunscreen).

Use more sunscreen (with higher SPF) when you are near reflective surfaces like water, snow or ice.

We all know that the sun can cause skin lesions, but did you know that can also cause eye problems? Protect your face and eyes with a hat with a visor or hat, and wear sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection.

Some medications, such as drugs that are prescribed for acne and anovulatory (birth control pills) can increase sensitivity to the sun, or, if you are under treatment with any of these drugs, increase your sun protection.

If you like to be tan, try faking it with self-tanning tanning or beauty treatments. Anyway, Avoid tanning UVA rays, because, although the manufacturers of the devices that ensure that no project radiating UVB, UVA rays are also harmful.
