Harmful UV rays
The Chiron Clinic: Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays
With the UAE enjoying sunshine all year round, residents and visitors are exposed to daily hits of harmful UV rays. Whether you’re sprawled out over one of Dubai’s stunning beaches or taking a stroll around the Dubai Marina, your skin could be at risk of damage.
The World Health Organization reported more than 60,000 people died last year due to the harmful effects of the sun. A healthy dose of sunshine can be good for us internally, providing us with Vitamin D, lowering our cholesterol and blood pressure and building the immune system but the damaging effects on our skin are not to be ignored.
Exposure to the sun, despite the numerous advantages it has to offer, is extremely dangerous and a serious aging factor when over-exceeded. Therefore, applying sunscreen with at least 50 SPF is as essential as drinking water.
Adequate protection can save your life! From three various forms of skin cancer to skin hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, our skin is not able to escape the harm when not given the care it needs.
With the extremely hot months fast approaching, Dr. Lanalle Dunn, Founder of The Chiron Clinic, emphasizes how vital it is to exercise a thorough skincare regime:
- Use sunblock with a minimum 50 SPF for to ensure maximum protection for your skin and apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going into the sun
- Drink plenty of water. Up to eight glasses of fluid a day are recommended. Being dehydrated in the sun can cause heat stroke
- Avoid the sun in peak times. However, if in urgent need, wear a hat or carry an umbrella, and don’t forget your sunscreen
- Use a hydrating mask and a scrub once a week. This will help your skin by supplying it with extra hydration and nourishment to combat drying and ageing
