Staying safe in the sun

Staying safe in the sun
We’re well aware of the dangers of over-exposure to the sun’s rays, but even so, the acronyms and figures of suncare products can be a bit confusing. So we’d like to offer some information and tips on how to stay safe in the sun.Medical advice is to avoid the period between 10am-4pm when the UV rays are most harmful and to bear in mind you still need sun protection on cloudy days.Wind, humidity and perspiration can reduce the effectiveness of suncreams, so apply more frequently, and if you’re using insect repellent, make sure you apply the suncream first.We’re used to seeing SPF on our sunscreens, and it says exactly what it means – Sun Protection Factor - indicating how well a sun product will protect against the sun’s ultraviolet rays. This UV light is divided into two groups; UVB, responsible for tanning, but can lead to sunburn. UVA also responsible for tanning, but causes premature ageing of the skin.There are 4 categories of SPF; Low Protection SPF 6-10 Medium Protection SPF 15-20-25 High Protection SPF 30-50 Very High Protection SPF 50+At L’Erbolario, we have products in each of these categories, for the face, body, lips and hair We also focus on suncare for children’s delicate skin.
