Summer is here, and with it, the desire to enjoy the sun and the good weather. However, it is important to remember that excessive sun exposure can have negative consequences for our skin.

In this post, we are going to talk about how the sun affects the skin, whether sunbathing is really good for our health, how we can prevent sun damage and, finally, meet our allies for this summer.

What is sunlight and how does it affect the skin?

The sun emits two types of ultraviolet (UV) rays that can penetrate the skin: UVA and UVB.

UVA rays are responsible for tanning, but also for penetrating deeper into the skin, which can lead to wrinkles, sunspots and, in the worst cases, skin cancer. UVB rays cause sunburn and also increase the risk of skin cancer.

Is sunbathing good for the skin?

Absolutely! Sun exposure in moderation has important benefits for our health.

Sunlight is crucial for our body’s production of vitamin D, which is essential for bone health, immune function and mental health.

In addition, sunlight can improve our mood and help us regulate our sleep-wake cycle.

How to prevent sun damage?

The best way to prevent sun damage is to take the following protective measures:

  1. Use sunscreen: it is essential to use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher, apply it generously and evenly on the skin 30 minutes before sun exposure, and reapply it every two hours or more frequently if you sweat or are in the water.
  2. Avoid sun exposure in the middle hours of the day: between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm is when UV rays are most intense, so it is best to avoid direct sun exposure during these hours.
  3. Wear clothing and accessories to protect yourself from the sun: wearing clothing that covers most of your body, such as long-sleeved shirts, hats and sunglasses, can help protect your skin from the sun.
  4. Seek shade: seek shade whenever possible, especially during the central hours of the day.
