The body is an area that we usually cover with clothing, so the skin of these body parts spend long periods of time without being exposed to the sun. Therefore, the impact it receives when exposed is much greater than in other areas of the body, more accustomed and adapted to the harmful effects of solar radiation. It is very important, when we go to the beach, pool or expose our entire body to the sun, to properly protect it with sunscreen. The skin on the body has memory and five sunburns can double the chance of developing skin cancer. Therefore, we must take care of our skin and our body by applying a quality and highly effective sunscreen abundantly and evenly.
It is common to give less importance to the photoprotection of our body than to the face, because it is a less visible area, and it is common for there to be people who use lower protection factors for the body than for the face, under the false belief that this They will get a tan faster. In addition, many people do not use an adequate amount of sunscreen on their body, tending to use less than necessary on parts such as their legs.

In addition, we must pay attention to covering our entire body, avoiding leaving unprotected areas.
Approximately, it is recommended to use one teaspoon of sunscreen for each arm, two for each of the legs and another two teaspoons for the trunk. Obviously, this will depend on the sunscreen and its formula, so it is important to adapt the texture of the one we use to the needs of our body skin, which are not always the same as those of the face. By choosing the correct body sunscreen, we can easily apply and reapply the product, making us feel comfortable and being better protected for longer.

What Benefits Does Using a Sun Spray Provide?
It is increasingly common to see people using sprays as their usual sunscreen. The truth is that they are not only an ideal option for people who are lazy or who do not have time to correctly apply denser and more expensive creams to spread, but they are also especially useful for protecting areas where one cannot reach, such as the back. Furthermore, its application represents a substantial time saving.
Sun sprays contain substances that provide broad and photostable protection against the ultraviolet spectrum, making them as effective and safe as any other sunscreen. The essential thing, as with any other sunscreen, is to choose a sun spray that matches our phototype and is approved according to regulations. To use it, just apply it half an hour before sun exposure all over your body and reapply it at least every two hours without leaving any of your skin exposed to the sun unprotected. Their main advantage, as we can see, is that they are very fast, comfortable and versatile sunscreens, both in size and format.
How to Protect Yourself from the Sun While Playing Sports?
While practicing sports, perspiration and sweating can be a problem for photoprotection, since many creams liquefy with sweat and come off the skin, losing their protective effectiveness. For this reason, there are gels specifically formulated to protect the skin from the sun while you practice sports, being breathable like a second skin and very resistant to water and sweat. They must have an ultra-light texture and be absorbed quickly, in addition to being able to be reapplied to wet skin without leaving residue or losing protection factor.
For example, at Farma2Go we suggest you try ISDIN Fotoprotector Fusion Gel Sport SPF 50+, it is an ideal sunscreen for practicing sports. With high SPF 50+ sun protection, which guarantees great protection against burns and photoaging, it provides a refreshing sensation that will help balance body temperature while you exercise. It is suitable for all types of sports and conditions, ensuring that your skin is properly protected from UVB and UVA rays.
Are There Specific Sunscreens for Children?
Children are one of the groups in which photoprotection should be most extreme. Firstly, because they carry out outdoor activity much more frequently than adults, and, secondly but no less important, because their skin is not as adapted to sun exposure as that of older people, and they may suffer greater damage from ultraviolet radiation.
For this reason, at Farma2Go we offer you a wide variety of children's sunscreens, so that you can protect your children from the sun's rays, to take care of their skin and prevent them from suffering burns that potentially affect the future generation of skin cancer.
