After the dark months of winter, there’s perhaps nothing more pleasant than feeling the warm rays of the sun on your skin. We need the sun and its warmth to stay healthy.
It revives our spirits and increases our feeling of well-being by activating our entire metabolism. Our circulation is stimulated, the skin is supplied with a larger quantity of oxygen
and nutrients, an increase in cell division takes place, and the release of certain hormones is assisted. What is more, the production of vitamin D, which is necessary for forming and strengthening bones, is initiated by the UVB rays.
The problems begin when unprotected skin, not accustomed to the sun, is exposed to high amounts of sunlight to achieve an attractive tan in as short a time as possible.
This may result in:
· dehydration of the skin
· increased wrinkle formation, and
· premature, light-induced skin aging.
Under the influence of UV rays, there’s also an increase in free radicals. With their cell-damaging effect, these accelerate the skin aging process.
To enjoy life outdoors, and particularly during a holiday, powerful, high-quality sunscreen products are required that optimally protect, evenly tan and intensively moisturize the skin.
Using advanced technology and valuable plant extracts, ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND has developed sun products that fulfill today’s requirements and guidelines.
