Facial tips

Protect your skin in just 3 minutes and enjoy the sun!

29 Jun, 22

They say that mothers always know best, whether that’s drinking milk for strong bones or applying sun cream every 10 minutes. When you were a child, this was the last thing on your mind - all you wanted to do was splash about in the sea all day.

But this has changed over the years, as we’ve all become more aware of the importance of sunscreen to protect the face and body from the effects of the sun and from harmful UVA and UVB rays. So today, we're sharing our top five sun protection tips:

1. Use sunscreen.

This is key! Choosing the right sunscreen for your skin is the first and most important thing you should do. Babaria has a wide sun protection range, and in the next section you’ll find the four facial products that’ll become your summer sunscreen essentials.

2. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated.

Drinking fluids helps replenish the water and mineral salts lost through sweating due to prolonged sun exposure.

3. Wear long sleeves, a hat or cap and sunglasses.

While high temperatures might make you want to dress in short sleeves, shorts or bikinis, wearing protective clothing and accessories is recommended. Clothing with SPF or garments made from natural fabrics such as cotton and linen are some good options.

4. Avoid the midday sun.

Try to avoid sun exposure between midday and 4pm. This is when the sun is at its strongest and, therefore, has the greatest effect. Stay in the shade!

5. Avoid exposing your skin to the sun for more than 20 minutes at a time.

Opt for less time, more times; that way, you’ll avoid serious sunburn and other effects such as heat or sunstroke.
