Caring for your skin

Products for sun exposure.

With the warm weather upon us, everyone wants to be outside and bask in the sunshine. But don’t forget to protect yourself against the sun’s harsh rays. Check out these quick tips!

  • The sun is responsible for 80% of premature skin aging and is a known cause of skin cancer.

  • Using sunscreen will help protect against skin cancer and wrinkles.

  • 80% of the sun’s rays can penetrate smog, mist, light clouds and fog.

  • The higher the SPF of your sunscreen the better. Most dermatologists recommend using SPF 30 or higher.

  • Apply sunscreen even when you are under a beach umbrella. Rays reflecting off the sand and water can still burn you.

  • The sun can reflect also off snow and ice, so also apply to exposed skin before winter sports and other outdoor activities.

Did you know?

 

MYTH: The higher the SPF on my sun protection product, the better.

 

FALSE: The optimal SPF you use should be around 15 to 20. After this, increases in protection are very minimal and as the SPF number  increases, the array of chemicals also increases. Some of these sun cream agents have even been shown to be converted into free radicals by the sun.

 

MYTH: Powerful chemicals are the only thing that can shield skin from the sun.

 

FALSE: Mineral sun screens offer impressive protection. Ingredients such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide act as a barrier between the skin and sun – reflecting away UV rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens,

these minerals are not degraded by UV, and so provide long lasting protection from the sun.

 

MYTH: The longer I stay in the sun without protection, the more vitamin D my body makes.

 

FALSE: Our skin only creates vitamin D for the first 20 minutes of sun exposure (specifically, exposure to UVB rays). After that, UV rays destroy vitamin D in the skin, meaning levels actually decrease the longer you spend in the sun without protection.
