Why protect yourself from UV rays ?

If the sun has many beneficial actions for our body and our health thanks to vitamins D, a strong exposure to the sun can be dangerous for the skin and leads to premature aging. Indeed, 70% of skin cancers are linked to an overexposure to ultraviolet (UV). It is therefore essential to protect your skin before, during and after each sun exposure. However, the solar risk is not the same for all, the lighter the skin, the lower the sun capital.

The dangers of UV for our skin

Ultraviolet rays are the main cause of burns known as sunburn. And their long-term overexposure increases the risk of cancer and cataracts.

When exposed to the sun, we are exposed to three types of UV rays:

- UVA rays : they are filtered very little by the atmosphere; by penetrating the epidermis they are at the origin of certain cancers, the development of cataracts and especially premature aging of the skin.

- UVBs : 90% of which are absorbed by the atmosphere, they are those that cause sunburn and promote the appearance of melanoma or carcinoma (malignant tumors of the epidermis).

- UVC : they are the most dangerous but are completely filtered by the atmosphere because of their short wavelength, so they do not reach the surface of the Earth (except in case of hole in the ozone layer).

A very regular exposure, even without sunburn, can therefore be dangerous. Indeed, it should be known that UV doses accumulate throughout our lives, gradually reducing our sun capital.
