How to protect your skin from the sun?

At almost a 2 square meter surface, our skin is by far the largest organ in the human body. It plays many essential roles to our well-being. Skin allows us to detect hot and cold as well as pain, it regulates body temperature through sweat and protects us from external harmful effects such as UV radiation.

It is essential that we must, in turn, preserve it.

The use of sunscreen

It is generally recommended to apply sunscreen to your face on a daily basis, summer and winter. One of the most important effects of unprotected sun exposure is skin aging. This means an early appearance of spots and wrinkles. Although it is normal for them to appear over the years, it is nevertheless possible to slow down their appearance while welcoming the effects of time with kindness.

Note that it is recommended to avoid the summer sun between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in order to give your skin as much respite as possible. To those who are wondering, yes, it is still possible to tan, even while wearing sunscreen! Sunscreen acts against the negative effects of UVA and UVB rays but also offers you the possibility of adding a bit of welcomed color to your complexion.

Wear adequate clothing

Hats, light shirts and long-sleeved t-shirts, there is something for everyone!

Choose fabrics that breathe and invite you to relax, while protecting your skin.

A parasol is always welcome if you don’t have enough to cover yourself up with.
