Sunblock a daily staple, beauty care-related urban myths are widespread among young adults and teens. That’s why young people aged 15-25 don’t use any kind of sun cream. Actually some believe that after a bit of sunburn your skin gets tougher and tan better.  Or, even worse, some sun worshippers are still convinced that natural ingredients like beer, egg white, olive oil or fig leaves promote a deeper tan. In a study  for Vichy a Y2K Communication and Smart Research was to explore the habits and knowledge of young people on holiday.

Results also showed seventy-five out of 100 young people know that the wrong approach to sun exposure is the prime risk factor for skin tumours. Thirty percent prefer to buy their sun protection products at the pharmacy, where they can get answers to their doubts/questions. Another popular source is the supermarket, where almost 50% of them buy sun protection followed, lastly, by perfumeries, which offer high sensory impact sun creams.

Among the golden rules to stick to faithfully, the most important is to re-apply sun products at regular intervals, even if we use long-lasting products, such as Vichy’s Capital Soleil range or Antheliosby La Roche-Posay, which are suitable for all skin types including the most delicate.

Allergy-sufferers can turn to Clinique. The brand employs only light formulas that are totally oil and perfume-free, water-and perspiration-resistant, and do not block the pores.

Sunscreen is a lotion, spray, gel or other topicalproduct that absorbs or reflects some of the sun‘s ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburnSkin-lightening products have sunscreen to protect lightened skin because light skin is more susceptible to sun damage than darker skin. A number of sunscreens have tanning powder to help the skin to darken or tan; however, tanning powder does not provide protection from UV rays.

Depending on the mode of action sunscreens can be classified into physical sunscreens (i.e., those that reflect the sunlight) or chemical sunscreens (i.e., those that absorb the UV light).Although sunscreen is sometimes called “indoor tanning lotion“, the latter is different in that it is used to intensify UV rays whereas the former is used to block UV rays.
