UV exposure may damage our skin´s natural barrier and cause diseases. Learn how to minimize the dangers by following some helpful advises:
- Avoid the intense midday sun, which is usually from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m, although this depends on your location, as even sun protection products with high Sun Protection Factors (SPFs) do not offer 100% protection.
- Apply sunscreen before sun exposure and reapply after 2 hours, if necessary even more often especially when bathing or swimming.
- Re-apply sunscreen frequently to maintain an adequate level of protection, especially after sweating, swimming or toweling.
- Do not expose babies and small children to direct sunlight. Avoid sunburn at all cost! Keep children well covered, including a sun hat, t-shirt and sunglasses.
- After a chemical peel, laser therapy, or in the case of drug-induced photosensitivity, use a very high Sun Protection Factor (SPF 50+).
