Sun protection for a safe summer

To each skin, its protection, here is the golden rule for a summer in all serenity! But how to choose your sunscreen?

Before exposing yourself to the sun, it is essential to protect yourself. In theory, a sun protection factor of 50 would multiply by 50 the time of exposure without fear of sunburn, compared to unprotected skin. 

But now, the theory is not enough... In practice, it's more complicated! 

Because this figure is only valid if each square centimeter of skin was covered by 2 mm of cream and if the intensity of the rays was controlled. Secondly, different external parameters can affect the effectiveness of the product, in particular the type of skin... 

In order to know which sun protection to adopt, you need to determine your phototype. 

This phototype allows you to estimate your ability to tan and the best way to protect yourself. 

There are 6 phototypes, classified from lighter skin to darker skin.

Thus, fair skin requires higher UV protection than dark skin.

However, having the right sun protection factor is not enough, it must still be applied effectively. Also pay attention to the most exposed areas of the body such as the nose or the ears.
