Protect yourself from the Sun

(Para la versión en Español, haga click AQUÍ)

Many of us enjoy the summer. We take advantage of the hot weather for visiting the beach, spending the day in the pool or simply to sunbathing. However, it is important to remember that along with all this summer fun, there are important risks to our skin and our health... ultraviolet rays, or UV rays.

What are UV rays? It is radiation of a specific wavelength that is found in many light sources, among which the sun stands out as the largest source of UV rays that we receive. We can not see UV rays, and although it is cloudy, clouds do not block them, so it is important to take the necessary precautions to avoid being harmed.

According to the American Cancer Society, it is important to protect ourselves from all UV rays (there are type A and type B) since it is proven that these damage the DNA of the skin cells, which considerably increases the risk of cancer in the skin. That is why it is recommended to take the following measures:

  • Avoid exposing yourself to the sun between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm, which is when UV rays are most powerful.

  • Clouds do not block UV rays, at least not all of them, and some types of clouds may even increase their exposure.

  • UV rays are reflected by many surfaces, such as water, sand, snow, pavement, among others. So even if you are not under the sun, you can still be exposed to this type of radiation.

  • Use clothes that cover your skin, the darker the clothes, the better it blocks UV rays.

  • Use solar blocking creams, with a protection index of at least 30 FPS. Remember that you must allow their absorption in the skin before exposing yourself, in addition to that you must make sure you apply the sunscreen constantly, since they lose their effectiveness with the passing of the hours.

Our soaps are not sunscreens, but they help you re-establish the hydration and balance of your skin after sunbathing. Our Cinnamon Soap is highly recommended to restore your skin after sunbathing. Remember to let its foam act on your skin for 3 to 4 minutes, in order to achieve the greatest benefits.

This summer #SpoilYourBody enjoying the sun with responsibility and moderation.
