How to choose your sun protection?

Choosing the right sun protection is essential for preserving your skin's health in the face of UV rays, but it can sometimes be confusing with the variety of products available on the market. Between protection factors, different types of exposure and the characteristics of your skin, it's crucial to make the right choice for effective protection. In this article, we'll guide you through the factors to consider when choosing the sun protection that's right for you, depending on your phototype, the amount ofsunshine and the nature of your exposure.

European regulations require all suncare products to protect against both UVB and UVA rays. To choose the right suncare product, it's important to know your skin phototype and cross-reference this with the UV index to which you'll be exposed. The lighter your phototype, the higher the SPF you need. You can also adjust your SPF according to your exposure to the sun. The more extreme your exposure to the sun (mountains, tropics, etc.), the more you need to protect yourself with a high SPF sunscreen. On the other hand, for a city outing, an SPF 30 will suffice, even for light phototypes. 

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