Smart tanning in 4 steps

  1. The vulnerability of your skin increases over the years. Your skin becomes drier, thinner and less elastic and you also burn faster. How you sunbathe sensibly depends on your skin type, the extent to which your skin is used to the sun and where you are. Four important tips.

1. Lubricate on time

  1. In the Netherlands it is advisable to use sunscreen if you are in the sun for more than half an hour on sunny summer days and / or if there is a sun power of 7 or 8. You can check how strong the sun's power is on the KNMI website.

2. Know your skin type

  1. If you have skin type 1 or 2 (often with blonde hair and blue eyes or red hair and freckles), you should be more careful than if you have less sun-sensitive skin. If you burn after 10 minutes, you must therefore lubricate in time. You can test your skin type at KWF Kankerbestrijd.

3. Use the right factor

  1. The higher the factor of your sunscreen, the longer you can sunbathe 'with impunity'. With your skin type, for example, if you can spend 10 minutes in the sun without smearing, you can do so with a factor of 15 sunscreen 150 minutes, or 2.5 hours. Note: this only applies if you spread thick enough (see tip 4). Different advice applies in southern countries. Between 12:00 and 15:00 the sun is so strong there that you should definitely lubricate. A Factor 50 sunscreen is no longer recommended. This blocks all UV-B rays and if you apply it, you will also miss a number of benefits. Factor 30 is high enough in principle, but keep an eye out and sit in the shade in time.

4. Apply thickly and regularly

  1. Use a generous handful of cream (33 ml for your entire body) per application and repeat the application several times a day. If you are swimming or active on the beach, the layer of cream will wear off faster. Greasing every hour is not a superfluous luxury.

Skin Cancer Facts

  1. Skin cancer is increasingly common. The number of cases is increasing by almost 4 percent per year. Of these, 80 percent are effective and easy to treat and almost never fatal. The most serious form of skin cancer is melanoma, the malignant birthmark. This occurs in only 10 percent of cases, but it causes up to 90 percent of deaths from skin cancer. There is strong evidence that sunburn increases the risk of melanoma.
