Our Sun Care Expertise

As a suncare expert since 1994, Lovea has always been inspired by the islands at the end of the world, through a signature that is common to all its iconic products: Tahiti Monoï. In 2021, Lovea innovates and launches its new Pleasure and Responsibility suncare range for sun lovers! You will find here a list of tips to enjoy your summer in complete serenity.

Apply your sunscreen regularly

For a protected skin and a more even tan, here are Lovea's instructions: Apply your sun cream generously all over your body without forgetting those small areas that also deserve your full attention: ears, temples, nape of the neck, hands, feet. Reapply every 2 hours. Even though all Lovea sun protection products are water resistant, we recommend that you reapply sunscreen after every swim. Your sunscreen should be applied carefully to protect your skin, not to expose yourself further!

Remember to protect yourself no matter what you do

Beware, the sun is deceptive: just because you don't feel the heat of its rays on your skin doesn't mean that UV rays have no effect! Always use a sun protection product even if there is little cloud cover, as this does not necessarily prevent UV rays. Beware of false sense of security, especially at the seaside or in the mountains and when it is windy or cloudy. It is not only at the beach that you need to protect yourself from UV rays: at the terrace of a café, during a walk with your dog, or during a long stroll, think of protecting your skin. At altitude and in the tropics, where the UV index is stronger, don't hesitate to choose a sun protection index higher than the one you usually use.

Seek shade and avoid the sun between noon and 4pm

It is during these hours that the UV rays emitted by the sun are the most intense. Your chances of getting a sunburn are therefore much higher! There is no need to overexpose yourself, as gradual tanning and protecting your skin with sun protection products will ensure a more harmonious tan that lasts longer!

Beware of reverberation

Bright, shiny surfaces (snow, water or sand) greatly increase the amount of UV received by the skin and eyes. For example: at the beach, even under an umbrella, you are partially exposed because the sand reflects the UV rays. Water can also amplify the UV radiation received: when swimming, it provides a feeling of freshness but lets the UV rays pass through and reflects up to 30% of the radiation at its surface! Finally, when you are sunbathing after swimming, the water droplets on your skin have a magnifying glass effect that will amplify the intensity of the UV rays.

Use and abuse accessories!

Sunny days are the perfect time to show off your pretty accessories: sunglasses (category 3 to 4 to protect your eyes) and a wide-brimmed hat (very trendy this year)! In your beach bag, don't hesitate to add a large umbrella, some nice covering clothes and .... a sun protection product! At Lovea you will find a wide range of sun protection products to apply on your skin!

Avoid sunburn and once tanned, continue to protect yourself!

Protecting yourself from UV rays allows you to limit the sun's harmful effects but also to keep your tan longer. You'll have a beautiful sun-kissed complexion even after the summer is over! The tan is a natural barrier made by the skin to protect itself from the sun. But this barrier remains superficial and only filters a part of UV rays. A tanned skin is therefore less likely to get sunburned but it does not protect against skin aging! Therefore, the use of a sun protection product remains essential.

Especially protects babies and children!

Special attention must be paid to the exposure of the youngest. For babies, it's simple: they should never be exposed to the sun. Until puberty, children's skin and eyes are more sensitive and vulnerable to the sun. It is therefore necessary to protect them and to teach them as early as possible the right gestures to adopt when faced with the sun. Sunburns received during childhood considerably reduce the sun's capital (the skin's defenses against the harmful effects of the sun) which is acquired at birth and is not renewed over time. If the sun's capital is damaged during childhood or adolescence, in adulthood, the skin is less able to defend itself against UV rays and the risk of skin cancers increases.
