First Exposures to the Sun and plenty of Aloe Vera

protección-solarIt seems that sandals have started to become the main features in shopwindows; we’re changing the eternal umbrella for flirty sunglasses and light clothing begins to resurface from the bottom of the wardrobe. Spring has arrived and with it comes, the first exposures to the sun.

A first bathe in the sun that can become a double-edged sword to our skin if we don’t take basic and necessary precautionary measures. Especially because the skin, after being unexposed to ultraviolet radiation for some time, it’s more vulnerable to suffering burns.

The desired golden tone can be achieved, but in moderation. For the first exposures to the sun this spring, we recommend using a filter with an index of high or very high protection. Gradually exposing and avoiding the most damaging hours are some of the basic recommendations to avoid sunburns.

However, excess sun exposure can cause sunburn, appearance of age spots or actinic lentigines, and in predisposed individuals, it favors the development of certain skin tumors. In all cases, excess sun exposure accelerates aging of the skin.
