What are the key principles of sun protection?
The type of exposure (mountains, ocean, beach) requires that you maximise protection, depending on reverberation.
It is essential to reapply sun protection products every two hours and they must also be applied in sufficient quantities.
Are your patients not a bit lost when it comes to choosing their sun protection products?
There is a wide range of selections.
It is necessary to use a broad spectrum covering UVB rays (responsible for sunburns) and UVA rays (which accelerate ageing). Finally, you have to choose the galenic form (cream, fluid cream, gel, etc.) that is best suited to the areas in question and the patient's preferences.
What do you feel are the qualities of good photoprotection?
First, their efficacy.
Sunglasses must have CE approval in category 3 and 4. Other characteristics of sun protection products include: good tolerance, photostability, water resistance and perspiration resistance. To ensure they are used properly, products must be pleasant and practical.
