To get desired color (on your skin), it is important to choose effective sun-protection cream. Inexpensive sun-protection creams work just as well as some that cost more. Why? Because the base ingredients are the same.
Sun-protection creams are just one product that consumers tend to base quality on how much they pay for the item and if they later get desired color. The results of such individual testing are in the heat of the day. That is the time everybody wants to get desired color. The ingredients are the important thing in preventing orange color and preventing yellow color of your skin.
It is clear that efficiency of cream application in many respects depends on the fact whether it is picked up and used in a correct way: whether approaches to the type of skin, whether it corresponds to a level of sunburn, whether it is not too avariciously or, on the contrary - whether it is densely put, etc. Theoretically the summary on the package should help the consumer with a choice of sun-protection means. However, the most fluent review of presented goods on shop counters allows to be convinced, that not always it is possible to count on creams manufacturers.
As the standard organizers of testing used pharmaceutical means Photo Screen (Ducray) 60, providing very strong protection against ultra-violet beams. The most popular sun-protection creams having an index of protection against ultra-violet beams from 16 up to 30 were compared with it. The index or factor of protection is designated by abbreviation SPF (Sun Protection Factor): higher - more harder. The term "harder "is recommended for people with light skin: the factor designated on a bottle shows only protection against ultra-violet B type beams. Against UVA-beams as the test has shown, creams help much worse. It's shown that with cheap means for the beach, you can get desired color and surely protect your skin
Long-wave ultra-violet beams of type A (UVA) were considered rather harmless. Only recently physicians have come out with the assumption that these beams can provoke occurrence of melanomas, in particular, and at 20-30-years old people. However, for today, alas, there is no uniform method, allowing defining factor of protection from UVA. Accordingly, the uniform for all manufacturers of estimation technique is not present. As a result of comparative tests experts have come to conclusion, that figures on a bottle designate protection only from UVB-beams, as for UVA - protection in a few times weaker. And this affects if you get desired color.
Labels of two samples - Lancaster SPF 30 and Shiseido SPF 19 - promise much higher protection against the sun than these creams are capable to provide really: in opinion of testing organizers, in practice these factors make 16 and 11 accordingly. And from the viewpoint of parity the price/quality it has appeared that high price does not mean the best. So, Ambre Solaire, received an excellent estimation, costs twice as much as Lierac which has not risen above a mark of "average". To get desired color of your tan, you don't need the more expensive brand.
If you have already chosen sun-protection cream, now you can go to the beach and get desired color for your skin. If your cream/creams has been chosen well than you must avoid only preventing orange color and preventing yellow color of the skin.
