The sun illuminates our soul! But not only; our face also reflects that light. However, it also important to remember the importance of sunscreen to get most of the sun!
The sun can do much more damage than simply give you a painful sunburn. Dermatologists say that prolonged exposure to sunlight causes brown spots; red, scaly spots; drying and wrinkling; and, worst of all, skin cancer.
Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light harms fibres in the skin called elastin. When these fibres break down, the skin begins to sag and stretch. It also bruises and tears more easily, taking longer to heal.
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and refers to the theoretical amount of time you can stay in the sun without getting sunburned. For example, an SPF of 15 would allow you to stay in the sun 15 times longer than you could without protection. So, if your skin starts to redden in 20 minutes without sun block, applying a product with SPF 15 increases that time by a factor of 15, meaning you could stay in the sun for 300 minutes. In addition, a higher SPF blocks out more rays — a product with an SPF of 15 will filter out approximately 93 percent of UVB rays; SPF 30 filters out about 97 percent.
If you have fair skin or a family history of skin cancer, you may be at higher risk for skin cancer. Finally, certain medications — such as antibiotics or products with retinol — can make your skin more sensitive to the effects of sunlight. A multitude of factors affect how well you are protected from the sun. Applying your sun protection unevenly or not reapplying sunscreen often enough can also reduce its effectiveness.
It’s also important to know that SPF only applies to UVB rays. There’s no SPF equivalent for UVA. You can look for additional ingredients in your sunscreen to protect you from UVA — such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide — but there’s no standard measurement for how long these ingredients will keep you protected.
