Despite many advantages, solar radiation can be not only harmful, but also dangerous for our skin. There are three types of ultraviolet radiation: long-wave A-rays, shorter B-rays and short-wave C-rays. Ultraviolet short UVC rays never reach the surface of the Earth.
The destruction process is not visible to the eye, as long-wave UVC rays do not cause skin burns. However, radiation accumulated during life can have a harmful effect on the skin for a very long time.
UVB rays do not penetrate deeply, but they irritate the skin. Their role in the occurrence of skin cancer has long been known. Under the influence of UVB rays, skin pigment cells, or melanocytes produce dark pigment, as a result of which the skin “tans”. The effect of these rays on the skin quickly manifests itself in the form of burns.
The skin must be protected from both types of sunlight.
Nowadays, a good cream protects against both UVA rays and UVB rays. The protective ability of the cream is expressed both by the coefficient of protection and by the degree of protection against UVB rays. Basically, using the coefficient, we learn about how much time we can stay in the sun using the cream. To determine the appropriate coefficient, several factors must be taken into account: skin type, weather and conditions. The skin of children, the elderly and people with very light pigmentation quickly gets burned. Pregnancy and special treatment also affect your time in direct sunlight. In southern countries, the percentage of protection should be higher than in northern countries. Reflection of light, for example, from snow or sand, enhances radiation.
There are two types of protective substances or filters used in the development of sunscreens – physical and chemical. A physical protective substance (mostly zinc oxide or titanium dioxide) leaves films on the surface of the skin that interfere with the effects of rays on the skin. Chemical filters are absorbed into the skin. Physical protective equipment is recommended for both children and people with delicate skin.

Sunscreen SPF 20 and Sunscreen SPF 30 provide reliable protection for prolonged exposure to the sun, such as on the beach. Products in economical 150 ml packages also contain caring ingredients – beta-carotene and carrot extract. Sunscreen SPF 20 provides medium protection, while SPF 30-50 provides very strong protection.
After Sun Cream is a light after-care cream for tanning. The product contains aloe vera extract, which soothes skin irritated by sunlight and intensively moisturizes it. A large tube of 200 ml is enough for the whole summer. The product has a light fresh aroma.
To ensure that the sun procedures bring only pleasure and a beautiful tan, use special protective creams and limit the time spent in the sun. If you still forget about the precautions, always have Aloe Gel on hand, which will help restore and soothe irritated skin. Aloe vera extract effectively cares for the skin, moisturizing and softening it.
