SPF ☀️ (Sun Protection Factor), or sun protection factor, is extremely important for the skin, but even the birds on the branches are singing about it. Nonetheless, let's review the material again.
Protection against UV radiation: SPF is a key protection against the harmful UV radiation emitted by the sun. There are two types of UV radiation that reach the Earth - UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin and are associated with long-term damage such as premature skin aging and the appearance of wrinkles. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns and can cause permanent skin damage, such as skin cancer. SPF protects the skin from both types of radiation.
Why shouldn't we neglect products with SPF?
☀️ Prevention of sunburn: SPF blocks UVB rays, which are responsible for sunburns. Regular exposure to these rays without protection can lead to redness, pain, and permanent damage.
☀️ Prevention of skin cancer: Prolonged exposure to UV radiation without adequate protection can increase the risk of developing skin cancer. Using products with SPF reduces exposure to UV rays and reduces the risk of skin cancer.
☀️ Prevention of premature skin aging: Sun rays can cause premature skin aging, including the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of skin elasticity. SPF helps protect the skin from these harmful effects, keeping it youthful and healthy.
It is important to note that SPF products do not provide complete protection from the sun.
Other protective measures, such as wearing protective clothing and hats, and avoiding sun exposure during the most intense part of the day, are also important for maintaining skin health. And one more important thing, always apply SPF last on the skin, after applying all oils, balms, and tanning lotions!
