Sunscreen 101: Fun in the sun without skin damage and burns

Think slathering, that sunscreen on the BOD, all you need to do before using the sun? Think again, many of us can not agree with our statutory protection from the sun, and could cause irreparable harm to our skin and make us more susceptible to certain types of cancer.

The first thing to look for when choosing a sunscreen, a sun protection factor works. Contrary to popular belief, not the strength of SPF sunscreen, but the time to redden the skin in the sun, compared to how long she will blush with no sunscreen. Someone will be with a sunscreen with a sun protection factor 15 take 15 times longer than without sunscreen blush.
SPF 15 blocks 93%, SPF 30 blocks 97%, while SPF 50 blocks 98% UVB rays.

It is true, SPF only protects against UVB rays but not UVA rays that penetrate the skin deeper than UVB, and has long been known to play a major role in skin aging and wrinkles, according to the International Fund for Skin Cancer

While UV rays that cause wrinkles and skin aging, UVB rays, in the first place tends to damage the epidermal layers of the skin and plays a key role in the development of skin cancer.

Now you know what kind of damage can be the sun, when they burn your skin, you will understand why it is so important to protect your skin while in the sun. However, you do not want to overdo it and avoid the sun completely, as we all need to get some sun on a regular dose of vitamin D.

Here are some tips on how to better prepare themselves for "basking in the sun," a sensible way:

• Use a "broad spectrum" sunscreen is the only way to get protection as UVB and UVA rays. Always use a sunscreen wide protection, SPF, at least fifteen

• a further important point, enough sunscreen to cover exposed skin to fully apply. Main of a lotion, it is common for people to just dab on a thin film, when in fact it should be applied liberally to get full protection from the sun.

• Something else to consider is the frequency of application cream Sun Most of us are only one or two times a day, but not enough. Sunscreen can sign up for a while and must be as necessary as the case may be used again. If you are sweating or in water, then keep in mind that moisture on the skin, reduces the effectiveness of your sunscreen so you may need more frequent again.

• Because of the sunscreen about half an hour to be absorbed into the skin needs, then a half hour before sun exposure.

• Make sure the sunscreen you put on any makeup or skin creams or other treatments, even if it's SPF makeup. This also applies to insects, which may reduce the effectiveness of sunscreens, so use a higher SPF when using insects.
