Remember...
  • To use a sunscreen throughout the year. The sun’s rays are always harmful.
  • To pay special attention to sensitive areas that we usually tend to forget: ears, nose, lips and neck, the area around the eyes, etc.
  • Direct sun exposure after waxing can cause skin irritation.
  • To wear always sunglasses with full UV protection. An equally important accessory is a hat to protect your face and head.
  • Infants and children should use sunscreens with SPF30, containing only natural filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide).
  • A sunscreen that really protects you must contain powerful antioxidants, as well as moisturizing agents.
Prefer...
  • increasing your sun exposure gradually, to avoid sunburn, starting with sunscreens with a higher SPF.
  • foods rich in zinc (it increases the elasticity of the skin and helps the body deal with sunburn) and in vitamins C & E (for the prevention of skin aging due to the sun) to enhance the natural sun protection of your body.
  • foods rich in copper (e.g. mushrooms, walnuts, grapes, which increase the secretion of melanin) and vitamin A in order to maintain your tan.
  • using an after-sun body lotion to maintain your tan and moisturize your skin.
  • white or light colored clothing during the summer months.
Avoid...
  • wearing eau de toilettes, perfumes and body creams that contain alcohol when exposed to sunlight, because they can cause a phototoxic reaction.
  • tanning lamps. The emitted radiation causes sunburn, premature skin aging, and increases the risk of skin cancer in future.
  • sun exposure when you are facing acne problem because sun aggravates it.
TIP Teach your children to use sunscreen lotions (50% of a person’s lifetime sun exposure is acquired before the age of 18).
