How to care for your skin during sun exposure

As summer comes, it gets essential to know how to protect our skin from sun rays. Solar radiation, indeed, is composed by different types of light, each one having different effects on our body: the first step is to better understand what UV rays are and how we can effectively protect from them.

Visible light (37%): Visible light is the one which makes us see the world around us. It is not dangerous for the skin, rather essential for our general well-being. For instance, it helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle and stimulate the production of serotonin, the happiness hormone.

Infrared rays (60%): the ones which make us feel the heat of the sun. They can be pleasant, but excessive exposure can cause dehydration and skin issues. It is very important to protect our skin to avoid long-term damage.

Ultraviolet rays (3%): even if they represent only a small part of solar radiation, UV-rays are the main cause of skin damage. We may count three types of UV rays:

  • UV-A: These rays penetrate deeply into the skin and can cause premature aging and cell damage.
  • UV-B: they are mainly responsible for sunburn as they damage the surface layers of the skin and can alter the DNA of the cells.
  • UV-C: Fortunately, these rays are blocked by the atmosphere and do not reach the Earth’s surface.

To protect our skin from UV damage it is essential to use high-quality sunscreen products. Villa Paradiso Cosmetics offers excellent solutions to care for our skin during sun exposure.
