Protect your skin with sunscreen
Whether you're in the park, playing sports, swimming or just having a barbecue with friends: The sun not only provides feelings of happiness, but also sunburns the skin. The danger of UV radiation should not be underestimated. UV rays cause skin irritations and damage our cells. With high-quality sun creams, you can protect yourself against these UV rays and enjoy the sun at the same time.
A chemical or physical effect of the sunscreen ensures that the damage caused by UV rays is reduced. The physical sun protection is immediately noticeable by the whitest colour of the sun cream. The white colour reflects the sun's rays. The basis for such sun creams are ingredients such as zinc or titanium oxide. In addition to these sun creams, there are creams with a chemical UV filter. The skin adsorbs cream with the particular chemical filter and forms a protective film. This protective film converts the energy of the UV rays into heat.
What sun protection factor for my skin type?
Everyone tans at different rates. Some people only need to be exposed to UV rays for a short time and their skin turns brown. Other people lay in the sun all summer and their skin hardly changes colour. This is due to melanin. Every skin type produces different amounts of melanin. By the way, melanin is the body's own protective film of the skin, which is also responsible for the brownish colour of the skin. Since everyone tans at different rates, there are different sun creams. The difference often lays in the sun protection factor (SPF). We have sunscreens with a sun protection factor of up to 50.
The SPF indicates how long the sunscreen protects you from UV rays. Depending on your skin type, a different SPF makes sense. People with a very light skin colour often have a self-protection time of 10 minutes - after that, the UV rays damage the skin. Darker skin types have a self-protection time of 30 minutes. You can calculate the SPF yourself depending on your skin type. The formula is as follows:
planned number of minutes in the sun:self-protection time=SPF. If you plan to sunbathe for 200 minutes, with a self-protection time of 10 minutes, you need to calculate your SPF as follows: 200 minutes (sun time):10 minutes (self-protection time) = 20 SPF
