What are solar products? We try to do some ‘clarity, starting from the meaning.
They are cosmetic products, milk, cream, oil, spray or gel intended to be applied on the skin with the aim to protect it from UV rays, by absorption or scattering by refraction.
SPF . What? What does?
The Sun Protection Factor (SPF is an acronym for Solar Protector Factor ) is a numerical value that indicates the ability of a product to protect the skin from UVB rays from the sun.
The number indicates how long the skin can expose yourself to the sun before giving you a sunburn. To be clear, if unprotected appears after 5 minutes, with 20 protection can multiply the time to 20 (100 minutes), with protection 30 30 times (150 minutes), with 50 for 50 minutes (250 minutes).
The SPF value thus indicates the solar intensity that can withstand the skin before they have problems and since every skin is different, and the sensitivity is variable and subjective, the SPF number is actually a range between two values and by convention is the lower value indicated. For example, the Sun Protection Factor 6 indicates values between 6 and 9.9; SPF 10 indicates values between 10 and 14.9; the SPF 15 values between 15 and 19.9, and so on.The SPF 50 indicates values over 60.
Depending on the number of SPF protection is divided into “low” (6; 10), “average” (15; 20; 25), “high” (30; 50), “very high” (50+).
This Sun Protection Factor measures the protection against UVB rays, high-energy rays that cause erythema, while the protection from rays UVA , less energy and therefore have a less important role in the appearance of erythema, but equally important biological effects potentially harmful, are indicated by a special symbol, a number inside a circle. Typically the UVA protection is about one third of that by UVB radiation.
What skin type is? How to recognize it?
An important element when it comes to solar protection factor and is the phototype, ie the skin of dermatological classification based on the amount of melatonin present in normal conditions on the leather itself.
Phototypes identified are 6 and range from Type I (almost nonexistent melanin, milky or reddish skin) to Type VI (very dark or black skin).
So according to your skin type, to hair and eye color, you can usually choose the most suitable solar, which must be very high for people with skin types I and II, for skin types III high, medium and low protection for phototypes IV, V and VI.
Obviously in this case it is important to evaluate the personal sensitivity, susceptibility to sunburn and intolerance to the sun even with dark hair, dark eyes and fair skin. It ‘a good idea to always choose a solar SPF higher than that indicated in tables, to avoid burns and irritation.
During the hottest hours, you’d better wear a long sleeve shirt from MensShirtsShop and a cap on further protection.
Remember that sunburn at a young age are one of the causes direct of melanomas.
The sun filters: chemical or physical?
Chemical filters absorb UV radiation (UVA, UVB, or both) due to the combination of several substances. Often their action is even enhanced by the presence of physical filters.
The physical filters are composed of minerals (zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, mica the most common) that does not allow the passage of ultraviolet rays, but reflect them.
It ‘important to specify that the purpose to protect themselves with a sun product and with adequate protection to your skin type, is not so much to be able to stay in the sun the maximum exposure time that allows us the product, thus increasing the number of hours available but to expose themselves without risk, alternating moments in the shade and reapplying several times solar.
