With the hot weather we've been having recently the importance of sun cream is at an all time high. Do you know how to protect yourself and your loved ones from sunburn? Do you know how to stay save in the sun? It is always a bit difficult to see the important of sun cream at home in the UK because a lot of us don't think the sun can cause much damage when we're simply playing in the garden or going for a walk or bike ride, we want you to enjoy the sun without the consequences.
We all need a little bit of sunshine, we can’t live without it; the sun represents holidays, rest and relaxation. The sun gives us energy and intensifies our good mood. Exposing your bare skin to the sun for short periods of time can actually be beneficial. This is because the sun stimulates our production of vitamin D which is important for developing and maintaining healthy bones.
However, make sure the sun doesn’t become your enemy. There are two wavebands of ultraviolet light in sunlight: UVA and UVB. UVB rays cause most of the burning effect of sunlight. UVA rays cause premature ageing of the skin, as well as some burning. It is the UV rays that penetrate deep into the skin and damage cells. These cells are then at risk of becoming cancerous. You can’t feel UV damaging your skin and it happens even when the sun doesn’t feel hot.
You can get pleasure from the sun if you take precautions using sun creams. There are two important ratings to consider when choosing a sun cream: Sun Protection Factor (SPF) and UVA star rating.
