"I don't skimp any more on protection!" Laure, 19, student in France.


With her fair skin, Laure was especially prone to sunburn. To avoid them and learn to better protect her skin, she consulted a dermatologist. Since then, she has been able to enjoy the benefits of the sun in complete safety. Here is her testimonial.


Laure, how did your sunburns occur?

Last summer I spent my holidays at the seaside. Because I wanted a tan, I exposed myself to the sun from the start of my holiday without really being careful.

I even used monoi oil on my skin and I lounged in the sun all day… The result is that I ended up with extremely painful and severe sunburn!!


What did it feel like?

My skin was burning and it even started peeling. I had to apply repair creams every night and wear a tee shirt at the beach even when I was swimming. It took several days to soothe the redness.

The next summer, I swore to myself that I would not make the same mistakes! So before leaving on holiday, I scheduled an appointment with a dermatologist.

The solution

What did he recommend?

He recommended that I apply a SPF 50 sunscreen and that I also limit my exposure, avoid it between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. ... plus lots of other tips!

Thanks to these little tips, I was able to get a tan this summer without any sunburn! So now I don't skimp any more on protection and I even wear a beach hat!"
