Protection against the sun
UV-B rays are harmful and can damage skin cells (sunburn). When skin is burnt by the sun, this is remembered by the ‘skin’s memory’ and repeated burns may lead to sun allergies. Terefore it's important to protect yourself well against the sun with sunscreen products and UV-resistant clothing. Care Plus® has UV-resistant clothes for Ladies, Men, and Children.
Getting a tan
In the event of repeated UV radiation, the epidermis of the skin thickens and reflects the sun rays. The formation of pigment, or what we see as sun tan, is another defence mechanism. The skin pigment called Melanin functions as a sun screen and absorbs most of the UV rays. This natural protection is only effective for short periods of exposure to the sun.
Care Plus tip
Applying sunscreen products again does NOT lengthen the sun time.
