What is bronze?

Bronze is the skin defense reaction to ultraviolet exposure. The epidermis reacts to this type of aggression by dehydration and by the production of melanin, the substance that causes skin pigmentation.

What are UV rays?

UVB rays: those that act on the surface of the skin, responsible for thickening of the skin, the appearance of erythema and sunburn (their effects are immediate).

UVA rays: those that work in depth, the main responsible for premature aging of the skin, deep wrinkles, cause damage to the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis (their effects are not immediate, they can be seen over time).

What is FP?

It is the protection index, ie the degree of efficacy of the podus in the protection against sun rays (UVB).

Sun exposure recommendations:

Choose the appropriate protection depending on your skin type (skin-hair-eye), climate, season and latitude; if you have any doubts, opt for a higher protection factor.

Do not expose yourself to the sun too much in the first 2-3 days of the beach and gradually increase the exposure time.

Always apply the product approximately 15-20 minutes before sun exposure.

Use a sunscreen even if you are sitting under the umbrella or even if the sky is partly covered with clouds.

Use a product with a protective factor daily, even when you're out in town. A short 30-minute exposure to intense sun can cause irreparable aggression on your face.

Do not use perfume or alcohol-based toilet water before exposure to the sun.

Avoid exposure to the sun between 11 o'clock and 15 o'clock, sun rays are very harmful, if you need to walk in the sun it is recommended to use products with a large protective filter.

Do not expose to infants and to infants young children.

Use clothing protection (hat, sunglasses, shirt).

Reapply frequently (about 2 hours) and abundantly (especially after bathing, sweating or after toweling).

Hydrate, consume at least 2 liters of fluid per day.

Do not over-drink coffee, tea and alcohol.

There are some banned drugs at the beach, increased attention to exposure when you are being treated with: antibiotics, antidiabetics, anxiolytics, antidepressants, sleeping pills, hormonal products, anticancer medicines, diuretics.

Do not expose yourself to the sun if you have any kind of sun allergy, but consult a dermatologist.

Do not rely on the fact that you have turned to solar or autronous before exposing yourself to the sun. Artificial bronze does not prevent you from burns and the risk of skin cancer if you do not protect yourself.

Eat fruit and vegetables abundantly.

Convince your partner to use a protective factor product during outdoor activities.
