    August is the month of summer vacations, beach trips and sunbathing. This is when we enjoy relaxing moments while listening to the sound of the waves, smelling the sea and dipping our feet in the sand. However, it is important to remember that sun exposure can be harmful to our skin, causing damage that can lead to long-term problems such as premature ageing and risks of developing skin cancer. Therefore, before and after a day at the beach, it is essential to adopt specific precautions to protect and restore skin health.


    The risks of sun exposure and the need for protection

    The sun is a high source of vitamin D - a key vitamin for boosting our immune system, fighting bacteria and viruses, and promoting our overall well-being and good mood - however, excessive exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can result in a number of skin problems. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, while UVA rays can penetrate deeper into the skin, causing cell damage and contributing to premature skin ageing. In addition, sun exposure without adequate protection increases the risk of developing skin cancer.

    Sunscreen is one of the main tools to protect the skin from UV damage. It acts as a physical or chemical barrier that reflects or absorbs the sun's rays, preventing them from penetrating deep into the skin. Regular and correct use of sunscreen can prevent sunburns, reduce the risk of skin cancer and minimize premature ageing, keeping skin looking healthy and youthful

    SPF: What is it and how to choose the most suitable one 

    The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is a number that indicates the sunscreen's ability to protect the skin from UVB rays. The higher the SPF value, the greater the protection against sunburn. However, it is essential to understand that SPF does not indicate protection against UVA rays. Therefore, it is important to choose a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection, covering both UVA and UVB rays.

    Choosing the right SPF depends on your skin type and how long you are exposed to the sun. For lighter and more sensitive skin, it is recommended to use a higher SPF, such as SPF 50 or SPF 50+. For darker and less sensitive skin, an SPF 30 may be sufficient. Remember to apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before sun exposure and reapply it every two hours or after swimming, sweating or towel drying. 


    What about after the beach?

    After a day at the beach, the skin tends to become drier, irritated and dehydrated due to exposure to the sun and salt water. To restore and moisturize the skin, it is recommended to use after-sun products. These products usually contain soothing, moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients that help soothe the skin and reduce redness and sensitivity.
