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.
TOP SUN SAFETY TIPS FOR PROTECTING YOUR SKIN
Long days by the pool or on the beach are part and parcel of a summer holiday but too much sun exposure can be harmful to your skin. Here’s what you need to know about sun safety and how to ensure your body is adequately protected – whether you’re on the beach, by the pool or sightseeing with the family.
Be aware when the sun is at its strongest
The sun is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm so it’s advisable to not sit or lie directly in the sun around this time. Make sure you’re wearing a hat and apply a high-factor broad-spectrum sunscreen to your face and body at regular intervals – especially if you’re getting in and out of the water or feel sweaty from the heat.
Children and those with very fair skin are particularly at risk of sunburn so try to cover up with light layers and stay in the shade.
Lying directly in the sun with an aim to tan is dangerous and can cause serious skin damage.
UVB rays (ultraviolet B) are more powerful in the summer months when the sun is at its strongest and also responsible for tanning and burning the skin. They also play the greatest role in the formation of skin cancer.
UVA rays also play a major role in skin damage and penetrate much deeper into the skin than UVB which is why it’s so important to protect the skin adequately from both with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. If you want to still enjoy a holiday glow, invest in a spray tan or apply a good quality fake tan every few days throughout your holiday.
How to apply sunscreen
For sunscreen to work properly, you should apply it at least 15 minutes before you expose yourself to the sun. While it’s tempting to rush outside and enjoy the sunshine, your skin can be damaged in just 15 minutes so layer up before doing anything else.
Cloudy day?You still need sunscreen. UVA rays are present all year around and can penetrate through clouds, glass and water and will still cause skin damage even when the sun isn’t shining.
Top tip: Don’t forget to make sure you apply sunscreen to your hands, feet and ears.
Finding the best sunscreen for you
Finding a sunscreen suited to your skin type will help you to make sure your body stays comfortable all day long. Vichy’s Solar Protective Waters come in a range of formulas that provide the skin with extra hydration and antioxidants, in addition to broad-spectrum protection.
Choose from SPF 30 or SPF 50 and don’t forget to reapply at regular intervals throughout the day.
Like all skin products, Vichy Capital Soleil Solar Protective Water SPF50 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.
Vichy Capital Soleil, a full range of suncare products for all types of skin and sensitivity to the sun. Prevention of skin reactions including allergies to the sun or chemical filters, sun protection for sensitive skin, sunscreen for children or babies, specific sun protection for oily to acne-prone skin, dry skin or hyperpigmented skin...
Choose a 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 protection products work?
Sun protection 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
HOW TO AVOID SUN-DAMAGED SKIN ON HOLIDAY
A break to somewhere with a sunny, warm climate may be what you’ve been yearning for all year! It’s a chance to relax and forget about the stresses of everyday life. And while a holiday is fantastic for rejuvenating your mind and soul, radiation hidden in sunlight isn’t good for your skin.
Discover how you can spend time in the sun without experiencing sun damaged skin.
The effects the sun has on your skin
Sunlight is made up of many different properties but the two that cause sun damaged skin are UVA and UVB rays.
There are approximately 500 times more UVA rays in sunlight than UVB rays. And, as UVA rays can penetrate deep into the dermis (the thickest part of your skin) they play a bigger role in the premature ageing and wrinkling of the skin.
UVB rays aren’t able to penetrate through the thicker lays of the skin, so instead, they attack the upper layers of the skin, which results in sunburn.
Even on cloudy and overcast days UVA and UVB are present. So, it’s important that you include an SPF protection into your daily skincare regime to prevent things like sun damage wrinkles appearing. Pay particular attention to your face, as this is one part of the body that is constantly exposed to the sun’s radiation.
How to avoid sun-damaged skin
During the warmer summer months, you tend to expose more of your skin to the sun - especially if you’re lazing about outside!
Depending on your skin tone and type, even as little as 10-15 minutes in the midday sun can cause your skin to burn. So, to protect your skin from the nasty side effects that come with sun damaged skin, use an SPF protection that is specially formulated to care for the unique skin concerns of your body and face.
Vichy sun protection for FACE
As well as getting more sun exposure, the skin on your face is thinner than the rest of the skin covering your body. Plus, it tends to be oilier, so when choosing an SPF sun care product, look for one that is specifically formulated for facial sun protection.
We recommend using Capital Soleil Anti-Ageing 3 in 1 SPF 50 for your face. Enriched with natural origin antioxidants including black tea, Vitamin C and Vichy’s innovative Mineralizing Thermal Water, Capital Soleil Anti-Ageing 3 in 1 SPF 50 offers high SPF protective coverage for your face while also covering the visible signs of ageing.
For more oily, blemish prone skin try using Capital Soleil Mattifying 3 in 1 SPF 50 for your face. Enriched with natural origin antioxidants, green clay, bifidus extract and Vichy’s Mineralizing Thermal Water, Capital Soleil Mattifying 3 in 1 SPF 50 offers high SPF protection while absorbing and controlling daily shine.
Vichy sun protection for BODY
For a high protection coverage for your body, choose from Vichy’s Capital Soleil Range. Capital Soleil offers a range of formats depending on your preference from sprays, mists and creams with expert dermatological protection.
A water-resistant sun cream for all the family, try Capital Soleil Fresh Protective Milk that comes in SPF 30 or SPF 50. Or if you prefer a mist format, try Capital Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist SPF 50.
Vichy sun protection for BODY & FACE
If you’re looking for an all-over light sun care protection with a high SPF protection, consider using Capital Soleil Solar Waters for your body and face. Available in SPF factor 30 and SPF factor 50 with three different types: Anti-oxidant, Enhanced Tanning and Hydrating - choose the one that suits your unique skin needs.
Formulated with broad-spectrum UVA and UVB filters to help protect against reflecting the sun’s harmful rays and enriched with Vichy’s Mineralizing Thermal Water, Capital Soleil is amazing at keeping your skin protected and hydrated.
What else can you do?
As well as applying a high factor SPF coverage to your skin, there are other things you can do to minimise the effects of the sun on your skin. These include avoiding going out during the hours when the sun is at its peak - 11 to 3pm, or if you must go out during these times, ensure exposed skin is covered and that you wear a sun hat.
Also, drinking plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated - it’s recommended that you drink at least two litres of water a day and more in hotter temperatures.
Your sun care regime shouldn’t stop once the sun has set. It’s just as equally as important to care for your skin after a day in the sun, as it is when it’s exposed to the sun.
Use Capital Soleil After Sun products to instantly soothe and protect your skin from sun exposure. And, don’t forget to give your skin a concentrated dose of hydration using Vichy Minéral 89 or Aqualia Thermal - Vichy’s expert range for daily hydration.
Avoid exposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day.
- Keep children under age 3 out of the sun.
When to apply:
Protect skin with Capital Soleil Solar Protective Water SPF 50 Enhanced Tan 10 minutes before sun exposure, topping up every few hours for best protection.
How to apply:
Step 1 - Apply a generous amount to a cleansed face and body before going in the sun. For daily use.
Step 2 - Reapply regularly throughout the day, especially after swimming and exercise.
Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product because it does not provide you 100% protection.
- Apply to healthy skin.
Excessive sun exposure is harmful to your health.
- 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 she or he 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).
