Is it good to go tan or brunette?

Getting tan means that our skin and our body are oxidizing ☀️, and oxidation is synonymous with aging... But is there a way to get tan in a healthy way? No, there is no real way to get a healthy tan.

Solar radiation has really positive effects on our body, since one of its main functions is that it helps stimulate the production of vitamin D, among other vital functions. However, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays leads to negative consequences, such as skin burns, hyperpigmentation, skin aging and even cancer.
We always talk about the importance of using sun protection all year round to protect our skin from UV rays, aging, spots and, most importantly, skin cancer.

It is true that many like to show off a tanned skin tone, especially in summer. However, health is much more important and we must be aware of the dangers posed by excessive sun exposure.
We must take into account the type of skin we have, since some are more sensitive than others. For example, people with reddish or blonde hair have a low ability to resist solar radiation, while brown people show normal tolerance. On the other hand, those with brown tones or dark skin tend to be more tolerant.

Regardless of the type of skin and the time of day we expose ourselves to the sun, the use of sunscreen is essential. Sun protection helps prolong tolerance to the sun's rays, although it does not eliminate the effects of the sun on the skin 100%, so exposure must always be controlled.

It is essential to remember that sunscreens must be applied to protect against damage caused by ultraviolet radiation. Attention should be paid to areas of the body exposed to the sun, as these are the ones that require special protection. All parts exposed to the sun should be covered with sunscreen. And remember that the face is not negotiable, we must be strictly careful with the face because in the end it is our reflection and the sun is what ages us the most.

The most suitable times to sunbathe safely are in the morning, between 9 and 12, and in the afternoon, after 5, when the sun's rays hit perpendicularly and the risk of burns is lower. We recommend taking 15 minutes of sun to synthesize vitamin D or getting the sun when we walk down the street is enough and always with sun protection.

What does tanning really mean?

When you get darker, your skin is actually trying to protect itself. Inside your skin, there are cells called melanocytes, cells that produce melanin responsible for absorbing ultraviolet radiation. When those rays start to damage your skin, the cells tell the melanocytes to produce more melanin and protect you better.

So, when your skin tans, turning dark, what's really happening is that it's protecting itself against cellular damage. But if you spend too much time in the sun, your cells can become too damaged and end up becoming swollen and red, which we know as sunburn.

Plus, those sun rays can cause other long-term problems. They can damage the DNA of your cells and cause more free radicals to be produced, oxidizing our skin, damaging it. If this damage is not fixed, the chance of serious problems, such as skin cancer, increases.

How do ultraviolet rays work?

Ultraviolet rays, known as UV, have different effects depending on their type. They can be classified into UVC, UVB and UVA depending on their wavelength.

UVB rays, which are short waves, and UVA rays, long waves, are capable of reaching the skin through the Earth's atmosphere and causing significant damage. UVB is responsible for tanning the skin and causing burns quickly. Meanwhile, UVA, while it doesn't easily cause burns, penetrates deeper into the skin and can damage connective tissue below the surface. This damage leads to premature aging and the formation of wrinkles, affecting skin tone. Protecting yourself from both types of UV rays is essential to maintain skin health and prevent long-term damage.

      Importance of sun protection

      Sun protection is essential to prevent premature aging of the skin and protect it from damage caused by sun exposure. Using appropriate sunscreens and taking care of the skin from within with supplements such as Sol 360 Antioxidant, Anti-Aging and Protector, are key steps to keep skin healthy and combat the negative effects of the sun. Don't forget to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and always protect your face, as this area is especially susceptible to aging.

      In short, it is important to remember that there is no healthy way to get a tan. Tanning is a defense response of the skin against sun exposure, but it is still a sign of skin damage. Prioritizing sun protection, both internal and external, is essential to maintain healthy skin and prevent premature aging, sunburn and more serious risks such as skin cancer. Remember, taking care of your skin is an act of self-love that you should always practice.
