The sun has many positive effects on our body. It is a source of Vitamin D, it improves our mood, it is beneficial for certain skin diseases… But we have to enjoy it responsibly. And this is not limited to only during Summer but rather throughout the whole year.
Sunlight is responsible for 90% of the visible signs of aging in addition to it being the main cause of skin cancer. Let’s see how the different types of rays act:
- UVA rays: These cause redness of the skin. This type of solar ray degrades collagen and elastin, and causes alterations in melanin, causing signs of aging such as blemishes, a lack of elasticity and wrinkles. They maintain the same intensity throughout the year, even when it is cloudy.
- UVB rays: These are more powerful than the previous ones, and cause sunburns or solar erythemas. They can cause increased skin thickness and melanoma (skin cancer). Clouds or fog can intensify these rays, so it is necessary to protect ourselves from them all year round.
Looking at all the different harmful effects of sunrays it seems obvious and necessary to use sunscreen every day of the year.
A must-have throughout the year is our Luminosity SPF 50 + Cream, a sunscreen-based fluid emulsion for ultra protection. It prevents pigment spots caused by the sun and photo-aging. Its soft and light texture leaves the face feeling silky to the touch. Perfect for all skin types.
If you live in an urban area, don’t miss our city protector, Urban Blue Defense Cream, which also protects you from blue light radiation.
Two Summer classics, which are also valid for use at any time of the year, are our Les Écrans products, with a formula rich in physical and chemical UVA & UVB filters, for complete safety. The soothing properties of Liquorice and Chamomile extract and Allantoin regenerating agent make these two creams an ideal sun protection product, which comes with or without colour.
