Summer is here, the heat is here, the good weather is here and with it the classic beach myths. We all wonder what the correct answer is to recurring questions such as: How often do we need to apply sun cream, what is the right amount, how often, etc.? We reveal all these questions with the help of Doctor Gabriel Serrano, dermatologist and president of Sesderma Laboratorios Sesderma.

Some people think that if we put sunscreen on we don’t get a tan, but that’s not true. The sunscreen ensures that our tan, although a little more difficult to achieve, is much healthier for our skin. Not only should you always apply sunscreen, but you should also apply it regularly. One application a day is not enough; to protect our health, Doctor Serrano warns us of the importance of applying sunscreen every 2 hours at most.

If you take a dip, whether at the beach or in the pool, it is important to remember to re-apply after your skin has dried. Most importantly, don’t skimp on the product, apply plenty of cream, especially to delicate areas to ensure maximum protection. What’s more, there’s no point skimping if sun creams have a shelf life of nine months.

Sesderma: A line that adapts to every skin type.

After all this advice, Sesderma presents its new line of sun creams with 100% vegan active ingredients: Sophieskin. The result of years of work, a formula with active ingredients such as:  green tea extract, centella asiatica, Goji berries, aloe vera, niacinamide, zinc and calendula oil.

Seven different face shields have been created, with a formula for every skin type and every need and all of them have a protection factor of 50, are water-resistant and do not sting in the eyes.

SESDERMA Sophieskin sun creams


After discovering this magnificent range of products, Doctor Serrano reminds us of the meaning of the numbers on sunscreens. These 15, 20, 30, 50 indicate the SPF (Sun Protection Factor), i.e. the photoprotection level of a cosmetic. The length of time we can remain exposed to the sun without the risk of sunburn. For example, in the case of fair skin with a natural resistance to the sun of 10 minutes, if we apply SPF 30, it means that the skin will be protected from the sun for 300 minutes. The 10 minutes are multiplied by the index 30 in this case (10 x 30 = 300 minutes).

Although the high quality creams ensure 500 minutes of protection, remember to avoid staying out in the sun for more than 2 hours at a time. It is also important, as we have said before, to apply plenty of cream at least 30 minutes before coming into contact with the rays. Following the advice offered by the professionals at Sesderma ensures that we obtain the best care for our skin.

Perfect Renew exerts a skin-perfecting effect by stimulating the epidermal cell renewal process and vitamin B3 helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving skin tone.

From PFC Cosmetics gives us an answer to one of the questions of the summer: Should we put cream under the mask? The answer is clear: Yes. PFC specialists warn us that the mask leaves 50% of our face uncovered, such as the eye area, one of the most delicate and where the signs of ageing are most noticeable. Therefore, it is important to apply cream all over the face without neglecting the areas that are protected under the mask.
