5 Sun Tan Myths That Need To Be Unearthed

In this blog, we will show you sun tan myths that need to be unearthed. Finally, we are ready to embrace summer that lifts the spirit and carry the theme of vivid colour and chic outfits. Summer, on the other hand, invites sun exposure, which results in pigmentation. You can be prepared for your skin doctor, such as the right sunscreen to avoid tan.

You may have heard various opinions regarding tan, such as it’s good if you’re building a tan gradually, or kids can cope with sun exposure without pain, or you don’t need to use the best sun cream, and so on. Are these assertions, however, correct?

5 sun tan myths that need to be unearthed

Sun tan myths that need to be unearthed

Myth #1: On cloudy days, you can’t get sunburned

One of the most widely held tan myths is that you can’t get sunburned on cool days. Sunburn is caused by UV radiation, something you should be mindful of. The temperature has no impact on UV radiation. It means that UV radiation is just as effective on cool, cloudy, and windy days as it is on bright, sunny days.

To shield your skin from sun damage, you might be using the right sun protection materials, such as gel-based or matte sunscreen mist. However, do you see the dermatologist on windy or gloomy days? If you don’t, you risk getting sunburned.

Myth 2: Tanning is necessary for vitamin D

You’ve probably heard that sunbathing or using a tanning bed to keep your vitamin D levels where they need to be is a good idea if you live in the colder states or up the hilly areas where the sun is limited for most of the year, particularly during the winter months.

That, however, is not the case. Yes, we need enough vitamin D from the sun, but there’s no reason to harm one’s skin to get it, putting oneself at risk for skin cancer and accelerated ageing.

Myth #3 You’re not at the risk of tan and cancer with olive skin

Skin problems are closely related to a child’s age. You are less likely to develop skin cancer if you were raised with appropriate sun protection. However, if you’ve grown up without adequate sun protection, you’re more likely to develop skin cancer.

Myth 4: People with darker skin don’t need to worry about using sunscreen.

Fair-skinned people are more aware of the need to prevent sun exposure. However, it’s a common misconception that people with darker skin don’t need to be as cautious.

While the extra melanin in darker skin provides some protection, it does not completely block UV radiation. People with darker skin will also get skin cancer and photoaging (the premature ageing of the skin caused by repeated sun exposure).


Myth 5: The only UVB is harmful

UV rays are divided into two categories: UVA and UVB. UVB rays have a poor rep because they’re linked to sunburns and the growth of skin cancer. However, this does not imply that UVA rays are harmless. UVA rays are linked to photoaging symptoms like wrinkles and uneven texture. Skin cancer has been attributed to UVB rays. Neither is a good idea.

Take Back :

Applying the best sunblock cream would act as a skin specialist, which you can consult. On windy, cloudy, and cool days, don’t forget to wear sunscreen because it can cause sunburn just as easily as it can on sunny days. To avoid tan and skin cancer, make sure the brands you’re buying have the required or higher SPF.
