Quelle quantité et fréquence d’application ?

What quantity and frequency of application?


When it comes to sun protection, the quantity and frequency of application are crucial aspects to ensure effective defense against UV rays , blue light and air pollution. Adopting the right strategy can make the difference in maintaining the health of your skin. In this article, we will explore general recommendations and nuances to consider based on different factors, while highlighting the effectiveness of TRUE FILTER™ for optimal protection.

Ideal quantity and frequency of application

The ideal amount

Applying the right amount of product to exposed areas is essential to ensure adequate protection. Medical recommendation is to use 2 mg/cm2 of skin, which is equivalent to approximately 5-6 sprays of TRUE FILTER™ to effectively cover the face at a distance of 15-20 cm. It's important to note that many people only apply a fraction of this amount, reducing the effectiveness of sunscreen.

The optimal frequency of application

The frequency of reapplication depends on several factors. If you are at the beach or in the mountains , it is recommended to reapply every 2 hours and after each swim. In urban areas, especially in the city, it is essential to reapply throughout the day to maximize the effectiveness of the product. Even when staying indoors , using sun protection on all exposed areas is necessary, as UV rays can penetrate glass. If you work near a window, application every two to four hours is recommended.

Factors affecting application frequency

The phototype

The variability of skin reactions depending on the phototype influences the frequency of application. Light skin requires more frequent protection than dark skin.

Family history of skin cancers

In the presence of a family history of skin cancer, vigilance is increased, involving regular consultations and the rigorous application of protective measures, even for dark skin types. Applying rigorous daily sun protection becomes an essential necessity to reduce the risk of skin cancer.

Daytime UV Index (UVI)

Deciding whether or not to apply sunscreen based solely on the appearance of the sky is a mistake. The UV index does not simply depend on the presence of clouds, but is the result of a complex equation including solar angle, altitude, cloud cover, stratospheric ozone, albedo and shade. Don't be fooled: UVA rays persist, passing through clouds, windows and even your skin.

Contrary to popular belief, clouds do not effectively protect against solar rays. A light veil of clouds only blocks 5 to 10% of the rays, and can even increase the solar risk. To effectively counter photoaging, always opt for complete sun protection , regardless of weather conditions.

Environment and lifestyle habits

Daily activities, such as working on a screen near a window or cycling to work, significantly affect light exposure. These situations require suitable protection to counter the harmful effects of invisible and visible light , highlighting the importance of a diversified sun protection strategy.

Be careful with digital technology, since we know that the blue light emitted by screens , particularly for fair skin, contributes to skin aging by generating oxidative stress and free radicals (ROS) in synergy with UVA. For dark skin, it can lead to hyperpigmentation and the appearance of spots . Therefore, interior and exterior protection is crucial to prevent these harmful effects, regardless of phototype.
