The sun is the heavenly body that has been worshiped the longest by the most people.
From the ancient Greeks to today’s tourists, they have all worshiped the sun, though probably
in slightly different ways and with different expectations. Today the sun is a hot research topic and
there have been more studies on the subject than you can count. Therefore, let’s address some of the
myths surrounding the sun in time for summer. Do you get spots and pimples by using sunscreen?
Is it good to visit a tanning salon before going out into the sun… what’s the deal?!

“It’s good to sunbathe in a tanning salon prior to sun exposure to get a protective base.” – FALSE!

The tan provided by a sunbed will only provide the equivalent protection of a SPF of 3-4.
The most important protection for fair skin is to become thicker, as it gradually becomes accustomed to natural sunlight. Sunbeds don’t usually provide the same type of UV radiation as the sun and therefore cannot affect the skin thickness. Sunbeds are also harmful and can cause an increased risk of malignant melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer.

“You get pimples and spots when using sunscreens.” – FALSE!
Today’s sunscreens are formulated in such a way that they don’t clog the pores but allow the skin to breathe. Many feel however that the sun makes your skin fresher and that any acne can be reduced. And that’s because the sun has a drying effect on the skin that in the short term can remove pimples. Important to know is that the drying effect creates an imbalance in the skin that over time can cause the skin to produce more sebum (grease). As a consequence of this excessive sebum production, many people have problems with oily skin in the early autumn, which in turn causes more pimples than before.

“The sun is the best source of vitamin D.” – QUALIFIED TRUTH
The sun is a good and important source of vitamin D, but dermatologists say that the risks of harmful UV radiation makes it a less good source compared with, for example fatty fish and supplements.

“I can burn even when I am in the water.” – TRUE!

50% of the strength of the sun’s rays can reach you one metre below the surface.

“I can’t get burned when it is cloudy.” – FALSE!

Up to 80% of the sun’s UV rays can penetrate even on a cloudy day.
