Making it a habit to use copious amounts of sunscreen daily protects you from both the signs of aging and skin cancer. But which sunscreen should you choose and why?

Many people think that they protect themselves well enough, but the truth is that most people often follow outdated advice, lubricate themselves too infrequently and use too low a factor. Do you recognise your self?


That sunscreen is sunscreen is also a well-known myth in the skin care industry. Many people believe that no matter what sunscreen they use, they are protected from all types of sun rays. Unfortunately, that is wrong. To find the right sunscreen for your skin and your use, we recommend reading the labels and looking for the right properties. Look for broad spectrum protection!

Do you really know what UVA and UVB rays do to the skin?

Most people are familiar with UVA and UVB rays. A good rule of thumb is that A stands for aging and B stands gets burned. The factor you choose (SPF) indicates how long you can stay in the sun before the UVB rays cause you to get burned. The sun factor (SPF), on the other hand, says nothing about whether the cream protects against UVA rays. The UVA rays go deeper into the skin, break down fibers and give visible signs of aging, as well as being associated with skin cancer. The UVB rays give you the tan you are looking for, but also contribute to damage to the upper skin layer. If you go out in the sun without a sun factor, and get burned after 10 minutes, a sunscreen with a factor of 15 will delay this process by a full 150 minutes. So you can be 15 times longer in the sun with SPF15.

To protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays, it is important that you buy a sunscreen that not only has a high factor, but is also labeled "Broad Spectrum" or "Broad Spectrum".

Have you heard of chemical and physical sunscreen?

Chemical sunscreens are often preferred by us adults. The reason is that it is absorbed into the skin, does not become as sticky, feels lighter on the skin and does not leave a white film.

Physical sunscreens, or mineral filters, settle on the surface of the skin. This is preferred for children because it looks better, stays white on the skin and often a little "sticky".

The tan protects! Or does it?

It is a myth that a well-developed tan in early summer makes you more equipped to be out in the sun, unfortunately. The tan is a visible sign that the skin is damaged and vulnerable. The brown pigments mean that you do not get burned as quickly, but it is neither healthy nor preventive to get a tan to protect yourself against future sun exposure.

Do you use enough sunscreen?

Most people use too little sunscreen. As an adult, you should use at least SPF30 on your body, and an amount equivalent to one egg glass with one lubrication. Then you should apply a new coat every two hours or after bathing and exercising. For the face, a teaspoon of sunscreen is enough to give the SPF protection stated on the product, but remember that we often sweat from the hairline and on the upper lip, and that we rub in the eyes. All this helps to reduce the protection quickly, and you should therefore repeat the lubrication every two hours on the face as well. In the face and on exposed areas such as ears, neck, chest and shoulders, we recommend SPF 50.
