Island Tribe SPF 50 Anti-Ageing gezichts crème met collageen
UVR is strongest between 10:00AM and 2:00PM. Clouds filter some but not most of the UVR so it’s still possible to get burned on a cloudy day. Some ground surfaces such as sand and snow reflect most of the UVR. For instance snow can reflect as much as 80% on the incident UVR Water actually reflects very little UVR. For every 1000 feet increase in altitude the UVR increases by 4%. Seek the shade, especially between 11 AM and 3 PM. Do not burn. Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths. Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses. Use ISLAND TRIBE sunscreen wit...

SUNSCREEN PROTECTION FACTOR

Island Tribe SPF 40 Light Lotion Trigger Spray 300ml voor de hele familie
SPF stands for Sunscreen Protection Factor. It is measured by determining how long a given person takes to "burn" with and without the sunscreen product on. If it takes 10 times longer with the sunscreen product then that product has a SPF of 10. If it only takes twice as long then that product has an SPF of 2. In reality, the testing labs don't really burn the test subjects they just give them enough UVR to cause the skin to turn barely red. This minimum dose is called the MED (minimal erythermal dose).

SUNSCREEN

Sunscreen are chemicals that, when applied topically, keep UVR from reaching your skin. They work either by absorbing the UVR or by reflecting it. Either way, if used properly, they can keep a lot of UVR from reaching you. There are two types of sunscreens: organic and inorganic (also called physical). Organic sunscreens have been the mainstay of commercially available products for years. The term "organic" simply means that these sunscreens are composed of, among other things, carbon and hydrogen. It does not mean that they are naturally occurring and, in fact they are not. Organic sunscreens...

In the water, the length and the efficiency of a sunscreen is important. IslandTribe had an SPF value of 59.4 measured after 4 hours been active in the water.

SKIN TYPE

Skin type The Skin Type system is a method commonly used to assess one's sunburn risk. There are 6 (1 - 6) skin types (see below). The lower numbers represent those people more likely to burn and the higher numers are reserved for those people with a greater degree of natural protection. As we all know, fair skinned, light eyed people with freckles are the most sun sensitive while dark skinned dark eyed are the least sun sensitive. Everyone else is somewhere in-between. Again, it is important to remember that, while avoiding a burn is important, it does not mean that you have escaped more ...

SUNBURN

Island Tribe aftersun met aloe vera
Sunburn is caused by overexposure to UVR, mostly UVB. In fact, sunburn is almost exclusively a UVB phenomenon.This is important because it means that the SPF system measures UVB protection and not UVA (see SPF below). During a sunburn the skin turns red, swells and, in severe cases, blisters. On a cellular level there is an increase in inflammatory cells as well as many chemicals associated with inflammation. A sunburn continues to develop for 12 to 24 hours after the exposure. One blistering sunburn will double a person's chance of developing skin cancer. Remember however, that avoiding su...
