Choose the right sun protection

  1. People who think they are well protected against harmful sun rays by wearing a T-shirt are disappointed. Sensible sunbathing with the use of a good sunscreen is therefore necessary.

  1. Good sun protection requires good preparation. Let your skin get used to the sun slowly. This prevents the skin from burning. But it is also a lifetime investment. A skin that has been burned once severely remains extra sensitive to the sun for a lifetime.

Use sunscreen

  1. Sunscreen products are specially made to prevent sunburn. They contain UV filters, so that less UV radiation reaches the skin. However, there is no such thing as a means that filters all UV radiation. Even sunscreens that are highly effective and protect against both UV-A (Aging) and UV-B (Burning) rays cannot provide complete protection. Sunscreen should therefore be seen as an additional measure, in addition to wearing protective clothing and seeking shade between 12:00 and 15,000 hours.

Natural protection

  1. Another - natural - protection mechanism is the formation of melanin under the influence of the sun. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin, hair and eyes their color. By tanning, the skin protects itself, as it were. Small children produce almost no melanin, so there is not enough pigment to provide sufficient protection. That is why it is important to lubricate small children well. Too much UV radiation at a young age can lead to a greater risk of skin cancer. Research has even shown that those who are severely burned more than three times in their childhood are five times more likely to develop skin cancer later on.

Protection factor

  1. The protection factor of a sunscreen product is indicated by SPF (Sun Protection Factor). The SPF must be chosen carefully and depends on your skin type. Someone with pale skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes is more likely to get sunburnt than someone with dark skin and brown eyes. You can sunbathe safely for 20 minutes with normal skin per SPF. An SPF 12 is therefore good for twelve times 20 minutes of sunbathing. Incidentally, it is a myth that a higher factor delays tanning. A cream with a higher factor will prevent redness and burning, but will not prevent tanning.

Skin types and SPF

  1. Skin type I: very fair skin. People with this skin type get little or no tan and burn very quickly. Recommended SPF 25-30. Skin type II: light skin. Someone with this skin type will burn quickly and tan slowly. Recommended SPF 15-25. Skin type III: slightly tinted skin. These people don't burn as quickly and tanned easily. Recommended SPF 10-15. Skin type IV: tinted skin. Someone with this skin type tans quickly and hardly ever burns. Recommended SPF 5-10.

Lubricate generously and regularly

  1. Besides choosing the right product, there is an important rule when tanning: apply generously and regularly. Don't be too sparing with sunscreen. To get the protection that the sunscreen promises to give, the cream must be applied quite thickly to the skin. Economical lubrication gives a much lower protection factor than stated on the packaging. Precise guidelines on the amount of cream to be applied cannot be given, but a 'handful' for each application of the entire skin is no exaggeration. It is also important to lubricate the skin regularly.

Ten golden rules for tanning

  1. In 1995, leading Dutch skin specialists and scientists, together with the solar industry, the Dutch Cancer Society / KWF and many other experts, drew up ten guidelines: Enjoy the sun, but think about your skin. Gently get the skin used to the sun and avoid sunburn. Find the shade between 12 noon and 3 pm. Preferably wear a cap or a sun hat and clothing in full sun. Do you go out into the sun for a long time? Then lubricate uncovered skin well with a sunscreen. Ask the drugstore or pharmacy for information about the correct protection factor. Follow the instructions for use of tanning equipment carefully. Ask for personal advice in a tanning salon. Get out of the sun and certainly not under the tanning bed if your skin reacts strangely with, for example, a rash, itching or rapid burning. If necessary, consult a doctor. UV radiation helps with some skin conditions, but not with others. Ask a dermatologist for advice. How sensitive is your skin to sunburn? Do the test!
