Suncare Myth Busting with Ultrasun

It’s vital to ensure you have the correct protection from the sun, particularly during these Summer months, so we’ve teamed up with Ultrasun to bust a few common myths surrounding suncare, tanning and sun protection.

Read on to find out why having the right Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is so important, and other often-misunderstood factors of keeping safe in the sun…

The Myths:
1. I won’t tan with a high factor.

This is one of the biggest (and most dangerous) of sun protection mistakes, and it contributes to a vast amount of skin damage and skin cancer cases. The fact is that as soon as the skin reddens, it’s in trauma. Upping time in the sun and lowering the SPF will only ensure skin burns and sheds, leaving the skin tanless within days. Ultrasun is a filter, not a block, so you can still get your glow on!

2. It will block my pores.

All Ultrasun products are non-comedogenic. This means that the formula will not sit on the skin and block pores, which is the trigger for prickly heat and other sun allergies. Ultrasun products are also designed to be skin compatible through a mixture of the patented lamellar technology and ingredients. We are always improving our formulas to ensure that we are at the forefront of high protection sun cream that your skin will love.

3. I have a darker skin tone, so don’t need a high factor.

All skin tones need protection. It is a common misconception that the sun’s rays do not harm those with darker skin. Although black skin may be less susceptible to burning due to UVB rays, long-term damage from the UVA rays is possible. A high UVA filter, preferably of over 90% and SPF (UVB) of at least 30 is equally crucial for darker skin tones, both for the prevention of skin cancer and as part of preventing skin damage as part of a regular skin care routine.
