How to choose your sun protection?

Choosing the right sun protection is essential to maintaining the health of your skin against UV rays, but it can sometimes be confusing with the variety of products available on the market. Between protection indices, different types of exposure and the characteristics of your skin, it is crucial to make the right choice for effective protection. In this article, we will guide you through the elements to take into account to choose the sun protection that best suits you, depending on your phototype , the amount of sunshine and the nature of your exposure .

European regulations require that all sunscreen products protect against both UVB and UVA . In order to choose the right sunscreen product, it is important to know your skin phototype and to cross-reference this data with the UV index to which you will be exposed. So, the lighter your phototype, the more you need a high protection factor. You can also adjust your SPF based on your sun exposure. The more extreme the exposure to the sun (mountains, tropics, etc.) the more it is necessary to protect yourself with sunscreen with a high protection factor. On the other hand, for a city outing an SPF 30 protection index will be sufficient even for fair skin types.

Our recommendation for all phototypes is to opt for a minimum protection of SPF30/High protection .
