FOLLOW ALL RECOMMENDATIONS FROM SPECIALISTS


Beauty Box

Apply sunscreen always.
In and out of the water, on open or cloudy days, in any situation!

The use of sunscreens can prevent lesions linked to photoaging and protect against induced photoimmunosuppression. At the same time, epidemiological studies show that the use of sunscreens can prevent some types of skin carcinoma. 

Avoid direct sunlight for long periods of time and seek shade regularly - especially between 11 am and 4 pm (the most harmful period according to the Portuguese Cutaneous Cancer Association - www.apcc.online.pt )(1). Reapply sunscreen after swimming and perspiring, as water and perspiration decrease the efficiency of sunscreens.

And did you know that even in the water, the skin is exposed to high levels of ultraviolet (UV) rays?  "The intensity of exposure is greater underwater than above water," according to Arun A. Mavanur, surgical oncologist at LifeBridge Health's Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute in the US. "Ultraviolet rays are also reflected on the surface of the water. So in general, a person tends to get more exposure while in the water."(2)

Wear sunglasses, clothing and a hat! And don't forget to watch out for reflected light - sunlight reflects on the sand hitting the skin, even in the shade.

Fundamental... drink water - in this season, your organism needs more liquids than ever to keep healthy and hydrated. 
During the summer period, the increase in ambient temperature, often accompanied by the decrease in air humidity, is responsible for the increase in our hydric needs. Don't take any chances! 
Replacement of lost liquids is very important and should be done by drinking water.
The consumption of alcohol and sugary drinks should not be seen as an option to replace fluids; they can be ingested occasionally but not as a basis for adequate hydration. (3)

Because we only want the best from the sun... Be careful and watch for signs and have annual screening with your dermatologist.

 

 

FACT OR FICTION?

More about sun protection: test your knowledge and answer this questionnaire published by IPMA and APCC(4).

 

Can I get "scalded" on a cloudy day?  
Correct
Although cloudiness attenuates UV radiation, diffuse radiation is intense enough to cause erythema unless the clouds are low and thick.

 

Is too much sun dangerous at any age? 
Correct 
Human skin and the immune system are sensitive to UV radiation throughout their life cycle.

 

Does sunscreen protect me and therefore I can stay longer in the sun?  
Wrong
Sunscreens do protect but their effectiveness decreases after application - you should not stay in the sun longer than the SPF guarantees. 

 

Should I avoid the sun between 11 am and 4 pm?
Correct 
Due to the higher elevation of the sun, UV radiation is stronger during these hours of the day.

 

If I don't feel hot while I'm in the sun, won't I get 'sunburn'?
Wrong 
UV radiation may not be felt by the individual due to its absorption at the outermost levels of the skin.  

 

UV radiation not only affects the skin but also the eyes?
Correct
Scalding is perhaps the most common effect, but UV radiation can cause the development of cataracts.

 

Are light-skinned, red-haired people particularly sensitive to UV radiation?  
Correct
People with light skin and red hair are the most sensitive group in the population.

 

Does a tan protect me from additional 'sunburn'?
Wrong 
Tanning is already a reaction to exposure to UV radiation and will only partially protect your skin.

 

Are the negative effects of 'sunburn' cumulative?Correct 

The human body's ability to protect itself and repair the damage induced by UV radiation decreases throughout its life.

 

Is the sun dangerous in winter and spring?
Correct
The intensity of UV radiation also depends on latitude, altitude and reflection on surfaces such as snow.

 

Children should be especially protected?  
Correct 
Because of the high sensitivity of their skin and the cumulative effects of sunburn.

 

Reflection of UV radiation by sand and water should be taken into account.  
Correct
The directions of sunrays and scattered radiation are equally important for exposure after reflection on the ground.

 

Is it necessary to be in the sun because vitamin D is produced by UV radiation?
Wrong
The exposure time needed for vitamin D production is so short, that you don't need to sunbathe. 

 

The smaller my shade, the easier I get sunburn?
Correct
When your shadow is small, the elevation of the sun is higher and the UV radiation is more intense.

 

I won't get 'sunburned' if I'm in the water?
Wrong
Water attenuates UV radiation, but you can easily get "scalded" while swimming.

 

The higher the altitude, the easier I burn my skin?
Correct 
The higher the altitude, the less attenuation of UV radiation the atmosphere has.
