Summer has finally arrived, the sun is warm and welcoming, and we can ditch that heavy clothing. Tis the season to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy that sun. But the trick is as safe and enjoy the sun safely. There are many terms related to tanning, tanning lotions, and the whole industry. Have you ever wondered what the difference between SPF and UV index is? Here are some terms that tanning to help you understand the jargon of the industry. Then you can be on your way of being that sexy goddess or god with his golden tan.

Let’s start by defining your tan. Do not laugh it’s a slang term important. Tanning occurs when the skin absorbs UV ultraviolet. As UV rays penetrate the skin produces melanin, which darkens the outer layers. What is curious is that all we see that the dimming of a healthy tan, but infact is a sign of damaged skin. Today is the beginning of a burn. So little tid bit is not going to stop the sun worshiper so, then you have to understand what the UV Index is. This is just one scientific measurement with a big fancy name that tells us the amount of UV rays reach the earth at some time during the day.

UV is not visible, but is always present at some level. UV rays actually consists of UVA and UVB rays. Experts say they are wrong for what I have to protect against both. The UV index is at a scale of 10. The higher the number, the stronger the rays and the largest exhibition to be held. If the index is too high must be very careful as not take long to record. And what is so attractive red skin effect? SPF is how they have valued the suntan lotion. It is synonymous with sun protection factor. All suncreens has a number of 4-30. The higher the number, the greater the protection. The level of protection needed is based on your skin and the speed with which normally burns. People who tan easily and never burns can use a 4, but a fair-skinned person who thinks the sun and get red will need a 30. The difference between sunblock and sunscreen should also be explained, since they are totally different products.

Sunscreen comes in a lotion, oil or cream and has an SPF rating attached to it. Reacts with the sun, creating a barrier that can not see. How strong the barrier depends on the strength of the SPF. The lower the number, the less protection. Most tell you to apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going out and swim if necessary re-apply to leave the water. You can also purchase waterproof sunscreen that lasts longer. Sunblock is not otherwise FPS, and that does exactly what it says it blocks the UV rays of the sun completely. This is thick and sticky. You’ve seen people with it in the nose and lips. When you have to be careful is that some sunscreens are one of 15 or more will be marked as a sunscreen, but this is totally false! If you are looking for a sunscreen and then find a bottle that has no SPF number. So go play in the sun, enjoying the warm weather, even getting that golden tan if necessary, but do so gracefully and safely!
