Safe sunbathing: daily prevention is key

by | May 28, 2018 | Beauty | 0 comments

Most people are today aware of the harmful effects of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light but few of them use sunscreens every day as a routine prevention. It is critical to remind our relatives and friends of the importance of year-round sun protection, even when not sunbathing, to preserve a healthy and beautiful skin over a lifetime.
Skin damages start after few minutes of unprotected exposure. The exposure you get from everyday outdoor activities like gardening, washing the car or walking the dog is enough to trigger photoaging. That’s why it’s worth to use sun protection daily. You can also be exposed to skin-damaging UV rays when indoors or in your car if you stay long behind windows without appropriate UV screens or curtains.
During daily outdoor tasks when you stay exposed for short you can use SPF 15 protection on your face and uncovered arms and legs. This is enough to enjoy warm and sun without risks. Re-apply generously when lingering outside (two hours interval max).
Having always a sunscreen in your handbag at least spring to autumn is a savvy habit.
Remember: In addition of being the major cause of skin cancer, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the main cause of skin aging. The unpleasant signs of UV damage include wrinkles, age spots and the breakdown of collagen, elastin and subcutaneous fat, which causes skin to sag.
Only daily sun protection can slow down skin aging
