Did you know?

With a higher protection factor (SPF) you are better protected and therefore you need to lubricate less
SOME FACTS
There are three types of ultraviolet rays: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVA penetrates quite deeply into the skin, altering the pigment thus ensuring that beautiful tan. If you burn your skin, which is particularly from UVB your skin's DNA is dammaged and that causes skin aging, pigmentation and skin cancer.

UVC is blocked by the atmosphere and never comes close to your skin.
MYTH
Sunscreen's always specify a SPF. This protection factor indicates to what extent the product protects your skin against UV A and UV B. You want protection against both, so be sure that you choose a product that does the same and use at least SPF 15. This factor holds about 93 percent of UVB, SPF 30 97 percent and SPF 50 to 98 percent. The trick is to apply the product, regardless of the factor at least every two hours. Only then your skin is optimally protected. Protect your skin with our products.

Tanning on a tanning bed is safer because you are not exposed to UVB
MYTH
Tanning Salons often argue that the UVB which burns your skin is filtered out. But your skin is still increasingly exposed to UVA, penetrating deeper into your skin. Any exposure to UVA or UVB, however brief, can damage your skin. A sunbed is therefore no different from the real sun in this regard.

If it is cloudy, it is not necessary to protect your skin
MYTH
Not true! Even if it is cloudy, the UV radiation from the sun reaches the earth's surface. So protect your skin even on cloudy days, and do not forget to apply every two hours, especially after a dip in the water or if you sweat a lot. And beware, makeup with an SPF provides insufficient protection. These products are less concentrated than sunscreen. To achieve the same effect, you would have to put on make up fifteen times more than you normally do. So always use sunscreen with your makeup.
