Summer is here. And it is synonymous with sun, sea, sand. It is a widespread myth that men do not need, like women, to take special care of their skin. But things have started to change a long time ago.

Cada vez there is greater awareness of the need to use a good protector solar. Above all, for fans of a good bath. Always try to avoid the hours of the day with the highest incidence of the sun, those around noon.

Why use sunscreen

There are three main reasons: we will avoid wrinkles and aging premature skin, we will reduce the incidence of spots or melanomas, and they will be lower risk of cancer of skin.

What products to use

Dermatologists recommend using Broad Spectrum formulas. What does this mean? What are they products that will protect the dermis against the two types of sun rays that are harmful to our body: UVA and UBV.

If you are looking for a product without much aroma, there are presentations on the market that they do not add odor.


For, Oily skin, the gel or spray presentations are ideal, as well as the water- or alcohol-based and oil-free formulas. There are also several matte effect products, to avoid shining too much when we sunbathe a lot.

For athletes, there are sunscreens specially designed for these cases. They offer a very fast absorption, to avoid greasy hands, which would make it difficult to hold the racket, in the case of tennis, for example.

Y for avoid ending up with irritated eyes, It is recommended to use on the forehead and around the eyeballs (never on the eyelids), stick presentations.

Apply sunscreen after shaving

A recommendation from dermatologists is incorporate sunscreen just after shaving into your morning routine and before using moisturizers. The skin of our face will appreciate it.
