I Benefici del Sole sulla Pelle

The benefits of the sun for our skin

Today, on World Sunshine Day, we want to talk about its benefits for the skin.

By now it is well known that sunbathing is good for the mood, because there is an increase in the production of serotonin, the feel-good hormone. What many people don't know is that, this crucial source of energy, also has a number of beneficial effects on the skin: sunlight can give you a natural glow, and we're not just talking about a tan.

Too often we focus on the damage the sun can do to the skin, but moderate exposure to UV light can give it a healthy, radiant appearance.



But what are the main benefits of the sun on our skin?

  • It stimulates the production of vitamin D, which is essential for bone health, because ultraviolet rays allow us to synthesize this very important vitamin that promotes calcium production.
  • It stimulates melanin production, because it not only gives a healthy, radiant appearance but also protects the skin from sun damage.
  • It helps counter atopic dermatitis and psoriasis because of its disinfectant and anti-inflammatory action, which can soothe symptoms and improve skin condition.
  • It improves the quality of sleep, and thus also of the skin, because it affects metabolism and the neurotransmitters that regulate it.
  • It helps reduce depression and stress by stimulating the production of mood-enhancing substances, which also has positive effects on the skin.

Despite its many benefits, the sun can also do some important damage to the skin. It is critically important to consciously expose yourself to the sun's rays by protecting your skin with a sun protection factor appropriate to your phototype. We recommend using a sunscreen with SPF 50+ for the delicate areas of the face, décolleté and shoulders, and as the skin gains color, you can switch to lower protections. Those with a very light phototype, however, should continue to use very high protection at all times.



To take care of your skin under the sun, try the Sun Protection Line: consisting of products designed to protect the skin from the damage of UVA and UVB rays and fight skin aging.

The formulations, enriched with moisturizing and antioxidant actives, not only defend the skin from sun damage but also fight skin aging with anti-aging and anti-staining action. The lightweight, invisible textures allow for rapid absorption, providing comfortable protection for all skin types.
