Myths permeate, with common assertions like ‘I won’t get a tan while wearing sun cream’. Nothing stops the UV, not even a window.
The one and only thing that really stops you from tanning is to stay in the shade – and not just a sun cream: an umbrella on the beach does not block all the UV, not to mention the reverberation on the sand. The shadow of a building. Or that of a tree with very dense foliage exit the palm tree.
The tanning process is a natural process to protect the skin from possible skin cancers caused by ultraviolet light. A pigment (melanin) is thus created on the surface of the skin to act as a natural barrier against solar UV so that they do not penetrate deeper into our cells.
What a SPF 50 does ? And Why you will still be tanned and Why it is safer ?
An SPF 50 offers a high level of protection and is best for those with a history of skin cancer or those that are fair skinned or at higher risk for skin cancer. SPF 50 protects from 98% of UVB rays.
The SPF number is a measure of how long your skin can be in direct sunlight without beginning to get red or sunburn. SPF only measures protection from UVB rays, the type that causes the skin to burn and not UVA rays the type that age the skin with over-exposure. That’s why it’s important to reach for a sunscreen with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. No sunscreen will block 100 percent of UV rays, so your skin especially if it burns quickly may still get some colour even with it on, just at a slower rate.
To adequately protect the skin from sun damage, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends reaching for a broad-spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen that includes some combination of the following UVA-blocking ingredients: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone, ecamsule, and oxybenzone.
The best way to get a durable and safe tan is to gradually and gently expose to the sun.
Make me feel’s advice:
Do not forget, with the contact of the towel, with the drops of perspiration or the frictions of the sand, the sun protection disappears quickly, so it’s important to put in regularly. To be effective all day long the sun protection must be apply on the skin every 2 hours.
Finally, it’s not recommended to keep a sunscreen from one year to another. Once the tube has been opened for a long time, exposed to sand and sun, it loses its effectiveness so it is better to throw it away at the end of the holiday and buy a new tube early in the summer.
If your are sensitive to sun or with a very fair tan, its exists very good supplements to help bring the melanin quicker at the surface of the skin.
It helps to protect from sun allergy, speed the tanning process and make you tan stay longer.
