How lovely that Spring has arrived, the days are longer, we spend more time outdoors, more time in the sun…
Solar power has marvellous effects: it stimulates the synthesis of Vitamin D, (important for the prevention of Ricketts and Osteoporosis) aids blood circulation, it is beneficial for the treatment of some dermatosis, stimulates the synthesis neurotransmitters in the brain responsible for the state of mind… To sum up we are in a better mood.
But it also has harmful effects. Each person has to know how long they can spend in the sun without risking burns, this depends on their skin type. The effect of the same exposure to solar radiation will be different according to what they receive individually.
The Broad Spectrum Factor (FPS) tells us how long we can expose ourselves to the sun without risking burns.
Here we give you an example, pur cream has a factor of 15: Imagine yourself a person who by his/her skin type can be exposed to the sun 10 minutes without suffering any type of burn. With a Factor 15 used in the correct way you could be in the sun (10* 15) 150 minutes.
Enjoy these marvellous days of Spring, but don’t forget to use solar protection, your skin will thank you for it!
We hope you have enjoyed this.
