SPF and the SUN.
Protect Your Skin from UV exposure!
SPF stands for "Sun Protection
Factor" and is the standard means of expressing a sunscreen's effectiveness in
protecting the skin. The SPF value is the length of time a person can be exposed to UV
light without burning, when a sunscreen is applied compared to when it is not. For
example, an SPF of 15 means you can be exposed 15 times longer without burning.
Risk factor for skin damage. They
have defended their position by ignoring the fact that there are positive aspects of UV
exposure and by stating that "any tan is a sign of damage." But this statement
is terribly misleading. Here's why. Tanning is your body's natural protection against
sunburn it is what your body is designed to do. Calling a tan damage to your skin is like
calling exercise damage to your muscles. Consider, when one exercises you are actually
tearing tiny muscle fibers in your body. On the surface, that is damage. But that damage
is your body's natural way of building stronger muscle tissue. So to call exercise
"damaging" to muscles would be terribly deceiving. The same can be said of sun
exposure. Your body is designed to repair damage to the skin caused by ultraviolet light
exposure; developing a tan is its natural way to protect against the dangers of sunburn
and further exposure. Here's how we see it: Saying that any ultraviolet light exposure
causes skin damage is a dangerous over- simplification. It would be like saying that water
causes drowning. Yes, water can cause drowning. But our bodies also need water; we would
die without it. Similarly, we need ultraviolet light exposure; we would die without it. It
is the professional indoor tanning industry's position that sunburn prevention is a more
effective message than total abstinence, which ultimately encourages abuse. It is a
responsible, honest approach to the issue.
