How can you enjoy the sun without putting your skin at risk?
A responsible attitude requires effective sun protection chosen based on the radiation’s intensity and your skin type. Children’s skin needs specific protection, just like damaged or injured skin whose marks may become more pigmented in the sun.
How does solar radiation function?
The sun emits infinite light rays of various wavelengths, from the shortest to the longest. It also emits cosmic rays, gamma rays, X rays, ultraviolet (UV) rays (including UVC, UVB and UVA rays), visible radiation, infrared radiation (IR) and radio waves.
The most dangerous part of a solar ray is filtered by the atmosphere. Two-thirds of this ray reaches the earth. The rays that make their way to us (UVB, UVA, visible and infrared rays) influence the body.
Infrared rays give off heat; these rays make skin feel hot, as opposed to UVB and UVA rays that are invisible and cold but still have a large biological effect.
Why is sun protection necessary?
Solar radiation has destructive effects on the skin that range from solar erythema (sunburn) to accelerated skin ageing and skin cancer. Sun exposure is the leading cause of skin cancer, which is radiation’s most serious consequence. But you must also keep in mind that there are other risks, such as heat stroke, sun stroke, photosensitivity, ophthalmia and sun allergy.
The epidermis stops 85% of UVB rays; only 15% reach the dermis.
The quantity of UVB rays depends on the season, latitude, time of day and altitude. These are the rays that cause tanning and sunburn, which is the skin’s natural alarm indicating it’s receiving too many UVB rays. UVB rays have a carcinogenic effect over the long-term.
UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin; nearly 50% of them reach the dermis.
The sun emits these rays year round and they pass through clouds and windows. They are responsible for skin ageing (photoaging) and cause free radicals to form. These molecules attack cell structures and DNA. They have a carcinogenic effect, but to a lesser degree than UVB rays.
UVA and UVB rays cause skin cancer because they weaken the skin’s immune defences, triggering significant oxidative stress and creating lesions on the DNA that can cause cancer cells to appear.
Like all skin products, Pharmaceris S - Protective SPF50+ Cream For Acne, Mixed&Oily Skin can cause side effects, however, this may be less likely.
- Do not use it, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, our Rightdose pharmacists or nurse.

Before using any skin product, it is important to read the product information and follow the instructions on the package.
Choose a sunscreen product whose texture you like, which will encourage you to apply it more regularly. You should reapply every two hours for it to be most effective. In addition, some formulas are water resistant or speed up tanning to reduce exposure time.
How do solar creams work?
Photoprotection products are designed to filter both UVB and UVA rays, with an appropriate balance between the two. Their filtering power is indicated by an SPF (Sun Protection Factor). This SPF should be chosen based on your phototype and the intensity of the sun’s radiation, which varies based on location (sea, mountains, etc.).
SPF 6 = low protection SPF 15 = moderate protection SPF 30 = high protection
SPF 50+ = very high protection
WHAT IS UV RADIATION AND HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST IT?
There are three types of ultraviolet rays (UV) according to their wavelength:
- UVA rays account for approximately 90% of the UV radiation they are responsible for skin ageing and sun exposure reactions at a later age, as well as photo-allergies and may, to some extent, contribute to skin cancer; UVA rays have lower energy than UVB rays but are 20 times more abundant than UVB;
- UVB rays account for approximately 5% of the UV radiation they cause sunburn, boost the tanning process and contribute to skin cancer;
- UVC rays do not reach the surface of the Earth because they are absorbed by the ozone layer.
UV radiation was first reported to be harmful to the skin in the late nineteenth century. At first it was believed that the early and late effects of skin’s exposure to sunlight are caused by UVB radiation.
Nowadays, UVA rays are also known to contribute to the development of skin cancer and melanoma. High UVA doses may strengthen ultraviolet B-induced erythema, immunosuppression and the harmful effect on the connective tissue. They also contribute to the development of precancerous lesions and skin cancer.
Avoid exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day. Keep children under age 3 out of the sun.
- Apply evenly and generously onto the face 20-30 minutes before sun exposure. (Reducing the amount of product reduces the level of protection.)
- Apply the cream with your fingertips and gently massage onto the skin.
- Reapply frequently and generously every two hours to maintain protection especially before and after swimming, running and playing sports or perspiring or towelling.
Spritz your body with a soothing and cooling spring water mist throughout the day to keep hydrated and cool.
Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product because it does not provide you 100% protection.
- Excessive sun exposure is harmful to your health.
Apply to healthy skin.
This product is not a medicine. If no improvement in skin condition is seen or if problems persist, consult a healthcare professional.
- Do not use it, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
For acne-prone or sensitive skin, it is recommended to avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight.
- Avoid exposure when the sun’s rays are the most intense. The higher the sun is in the sky, the stronger its ultraviolet rays are. In the summer, this period runs from 11 am to 4 pm in western Europe.
- Do not stay in the sun for a long time on the pretext you have applied sun protection with a high protection factor. The aim of these products is not to increase the number of hours you are exposed but to reduce risks during exposure.
- More generally, it is best not to stay at the beach all day long.
If it is hot outside, protect your child from both heat stroke and sunburn. Make sure he or she drinks water frequently.
- Use full-coverage sunglasses with a high anti-UV index, a wide-brimmed hat and loose-fitting clothing that is long if possible (long-sleeved t-shirt and Bermuda shorts or trousers). Remember that clothing, especially dark-coloured clothing, is the best way to protect yourself.
Do not trust your impressions. Given that infrared rays cause sensations of heat and not UV rays, you can absolutely get a sunburn without feeling you have been overexposed (for example, when you are on a boat or outside on a cloudy summer day).
In the mountains, there are risks even when temperatures are very low. In fact, the shield offered by the atmosphere decreases due to altitude and so the sun is more aggressive (the amount of UVB rays that reach the skin increases by 4% every 300 metres). In addition, the glare on the snow considerably increases the amount of ultraviolet radiation that reaches the skin (snow can reflect 80% of UV rays).
Don’t be tricked by wind and water: they suppress warning signals triggered by infrared rays by reducing heating sensations, but the UV rays are still there!
A grey sky does not mean you should be less careful in relation to the sun. Indeed, many more UV rays pass through clouds than infrared rays and visible light. This may make the day cooler and less bright but it does not mean the risks related to ultraviolet radiation are reduced.
Prefer the shade to the sun, but be aware that this is not guaranteed protection. The shade does indeed provide protection from direct solar radiation but not from solar radiation reflected by the ground (grass reflects 3% of the UV rays that reach it, sand 5 to 25%, snow 30 to 80% and water 5 to 90%) or from solar radiation diffused by particles suspended in the atmosphere (at noon, 30 to 50% of the UV rays received are due to radiation diffused by atmospheric molecules).
