In a country like Greece, where the sun makes its presence felt most of the year, sun protection is required. Most of us think that the use of a sunscreen is necessary during summer, especially when sunbathing on the beach, but this is wrong. Sun can also become a big enemy to our skin even in winter. Thus, the constant care of every skin type with specialized sunscreen products is essential all year round, even in winter sports.
Dangers of sun exposure
Infrared and ultraviolet radiation that reach Earth’s surface isn’t friendly to human body. More specifically, UVA rays are responsible for the creation of free radicals that destroy skin cells, causing its premature aging. UVB rays are responsible for sunburns, while IR radiation destroys collagen, alters the DNA of cells and dehydrates the skin. The main function of sunscreens is to minimize these harmful effects, while maintaining skin’s natural moisture level.
