Protect yourself adequately from the sun this summer

It is very likely that you have gone to look for a sunscreen, and you have gone crazy when choosing it. There are so many references that an entire book could be written.

Of course, with the sun you cannot play, if you are going to spend some time in the mountains, camping, in the pool or in the sea, it is very important to put on adequate protection, 30 minutes after starting the activity, since it is how long it takes for the filters to be effective on the skin.



The expiration of open products is a maximum of 12 months, its effectiveness is lost as time goes by. For this reason it is advisable to change it from one year to the next. Especially in the case of pediatric products. To avoid temptations, it is recommended not to save it from year to year and get rid of it every season.

The most effective way to combat UV radiation is to apply a filter with an adequate protection factor. What factor do I wear? ? A person with normal skin, with a factor 30 will be protected for about 60-80 minutes, factor 50 protects for about 150 minutes. It must be said that it also depends on the skin type, darker skins require less protection. But in all cases, sunscreen should be applied to avoid burning, protect the skin from sun allergies and photoaging.



With the little ones, it must be said that it is not easy to choose a good sunscreen, and it can be a daunting task, especially if you are looking for a sunscreen for children under 3 years of age.

Babies have very sensitive skin, and the best thing to do is to keep them covered at all times.

There is a wide range of sunscreen formats, you can find it in cream, lotion (more fluid), spray, transparent spray and spray with a wet effect, the latter is much more refreshing. In the "mist" or "spray" formats, we can overestimate the amount that we have applied, so in skin that is especially sensitive or reactive to the sun, the more creamy cream may be a better choice.
