SPF 50, 30 or 20? That's the question we all ponder before embarking on our summer vacation. MyZen TV is here to assist you in selecting the sunscreen that best suits your needs.

Beware of UVC

Not adequately protective or potentially harmful to the skin: which sunscreen should you choose? This ongoing debate arises annually in beach destinations and sun-soaked cities. As summer draws near, many opt for Tahitian oil or Monoï, which can be an incorrect choice. The most effective sunscreen, without a doubt, is one that provides protection against harmful ultraviolet rays!

For children and individuals with sensitive skin, it is crucial to apply a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF) of 50. You should apply it two to three times a day to ensure adequate protection against harmful UV rays.

Beware of UVC

Sun oil is a helpful companion for individuals seeking a faster tan. However, it's important to note that a few years ago, sun oil was discouraged due to its association with skin cancer. Nowadays, there are UV-protective sun oils available at pharmacies that provide a safer option.

Alternatively, spray creams are also popular as they allow for precise application of the desired amount of cream. It's worth mentioning that while spray creams are convenient, they may not be environmentally friendly.

When it comes to protection, it's crucial to consider the composition of the products you apply on your skin. It is advisable to steer clear of creams with an excessively long list of ingredients. Instead, opt for products that are sold in pharmacies or supermarkets. They are certified and undergo regular updates.

Finally, remember that sunscreen should be treated like any other cosmetic product. You should store it properly and replace it every year. This way, you will ensure the effectiveness of its active ingredients.

The golden rule is to use a cream with a protection factor of at least 30 (the factor will depend on your skin type) for the best possible protection from the sun.
