The Importance Of Oral Photoprotection

The Importance Of Oral Photoprotection

The importance of oral photoprotection cannot be overstated. Studies have shown that topical photoprotection is often used incorrectly, leading to inadequate protection from the sun's harmful UV rays. To ensure proper photoprotection, it is important to follow these guidelines:

1. Apply photoprotection before going outside, rather than at the site of exposure.

2. Make sure to apply the product evenly and uniformly, covering all exposed skin.

3. Use enough product, at least 2 mg/cm2, to achieve adequate protection.

4. Reapply photoprotection frequently, at least every 2-3 hours and after swimming.

5. Keep in mind that perspiration, water, and contact with clothing or towels can reduce the effectiveness of photoprotection, so it may be necessary to reapply more frequently in these situations.
