EP retard the aging of the skin and reduce the sun burns. Sunscreens complement but do not replace protection clothes and the hat before the Sun. There is no scientific evidence that the use of sunscreens get eliminate the risk of melanoma. Gain insight and clarity with futurist. In the middle of summer is not over to re-emphasize the risks of Sun for the skin. Beyond that 15 minutes of Sun a day give us a good dose of vitamin D, the Sun is an enemy of our skin. The use of sunscreens is required. Sunscreens reduce the intensity of acute sun damage (Burns) and retard photoaging and cancer (the most common in the human race) melanoma risk. But sunscreen complement but do not replace the protection clothes and hat (continued use of the latter comes to reduce the risk of cancer in the face in up to 40%), and to protect themselves from the harmful ctos from the Sun and not to increase the length of the exposure must be used.

So indicates the dermatologist and j of Dermatology service of the complex Hospital of Navarra, Juan Ignacio Yanguas Bayona, who remembers that there is no scientific evidence that the application of these products eliminate the risk of melanoma. Basic rules before the Sun key recommendations before the summer sun are: do not expose to the Sun at astronomical noon (between 11 and 16 o’clock solar time).

Protect your lips with protective bars and eyes with safety glasses approved. Take into account the existence of reflective surfaces.

At higher altitudes, more intense radiation and, at a lower latitude, greater irradiation since the Sun’s rays are more vertical. Apply sunscreen 30 minutes prior to exposure. Repeat the application every two hours after bathing and sweating. There is no doubt of the beneficial properties of the Sun (the Sun for 15 minutes exposure generates vitamin D than We need). However, Yanguas clarifies that it has been our relationship with this change which has led to an increase in certain health problems that previously only suffered it some few. Not all people have the same risk of suffering damage caused by UV rays, since, says Yanguas, not everyone has the same capacity of response to ultraviolet radiation. Here influences the type of skin: if it is lighter or darker, with greater or lesser pigmentation that acts of dnsa mechanism against sunburn, as well as other factors such as sweat, thickening of the stratum corneum or the cellular DNA repair capacity. Some tips more avoid medications or cosmetics that may sensitize the skin. Drink plenty of liquids. After exposure to shower with warm water and hydrate the skin.
