Sun: Good or Bad?
Have you noticed that during the sunny days you are in the better mood? Sun rays raise the level of serotonin – a hormone responsible for good mood.
Did you know that during 30 minutes of exposure to sunlight, the skin produces as much vitamin D as you can find in 200 glasses of milk? The sun allows for the synthesis of vitamin D, which, among other things, protects us from bone mineralization and osteoporosis.

How do solar rays work?
UVA rays reach the hipoderm and damage the collagen and elastin fibers. We do not feel their effect on the skin, but the damage they cause is often irreversible. They are responsible for premature aging of the skin.
UVB rays only affect the surface of the skin by attacking the epidermis. They can cause burns and skin redness due to exposure to the sun (erythema). Dermatologists warn that after frequent burns the skin may be more prone to the onset of melanoma. It is therefore essential to provide the skin with effective protection against UVA and UVB.
Which factors / filters protect from UVA and UVB?
PA factor defines the level of UVA protection. For the best protection against these air, select the PA +++ .
The SPF factor indicates the level of UVB protection. Depending on the time you normally spend in the sun without protection, it depends on the time allowed in the sun if you have applied the sunscreen. Example: If you can spend 10 minutes in the sun without protection to prevent your skin from burning, applying SPF 20 protective cream cream will extend you to 20x which is 3 and a half hours.
