How has someone not made this into a thing we can buy? Like a mirror with an inset screen so you can see the UV image. They can’t be that expensive. I’d use it and I wish I had it for when my kids were little.

13

u/thrower94 Jul 01 '22

This wouldn’t work because your eyes can’t see UV light that passes. If you had a UV filter, it would just look black all the time. If you had it set to only let near uv light, everything would just look purple because the sunscreen doesn’t block visible light.

You would need a camera that can detect uv.

17

u/rseery Jul 01 '22

Right. Just as they did in the picture. A uv Camera that goes to a display in the mirror. I can’t see uv but the camera can. It shows me where I missed.

u/thrower94 Jul 01 '22

Ah, got it, I thought you meant like a non-electric glass mirror.

They do make those! They also make UV cameras that plug into your phone which would probably work better because the camera is better and your phone screen is bigger. If you search “UV test camera” you should be able to find it

u/bye_Nillu Jun 30 '22

Put on loads of sunscreen, too much is better than too little! The best result is also to do it an hour before going outside. Sunscreen for the face can also be applied on the under-eye area, so that's why it's important to have one for the face and one for the body.

39

u/lyvanna Jun 30 '22

But if I put on too much I get annoyed by the feeling and wipe it off so there's less

27

u/bye_Nillu Jun 30 '22

That's why it's best to apply it an hour before going outside, it takes around 30 minutes-1 hour for for it to sink into the skin so that your clothes won't get the white residue/stick to your skin.

23

u/lyvanna Jun 30 '22

I mean, you still touch things in that hour. Unless you're floating naked mid air lol. And then you're meant to reapply every 2-3 hrs anyway.

I've never been burned just throwing on 30+ spf sunscreen on my way out the door or after changing at the beach. I don't really tan either, which I'd assume would happen if my skin was damaged. But I live in Norway so sun is not as harsh on the skin as closer to the equator. My usage of sunscreen would probably not work very well for someone in California or Australia.

My point is that I use sunscreen instead of moisturizer in the morning and sometimes don't go outside for a while...

You’re supposed to use 1 full ounce of sunscreen on the face and neck - they say visualize a shot glass almost full to get an idea. Most people don’t use nearly enough. Plus then reapply every 2 hours. Physical sunblocks with micronized mineral formulations meant for the face are lightweight and don’t feel gross, plus they don’t typically have irritating fragrances added (that’s what usually bothers peoples eyes). I wouldn’t use that much of a regular thick sunscreen meant for the body on my face, it would feel awful.

I used to help cut skin cancers off of people. Nasty business.

I have used SkinCeuticals physical fusion SPF 50 daily for years. It’s not cheap but I don’t skimp on sun protection. It’s tinted so it blends in well (even on top of makeup when reapplying throughout the day) and works on all skin types. It doesn’t change the color of your skin or have any fragrances (although it has a mild odor but that goes away quickly). Plus it’s a sunblock so it works right away, as opposed to a sunscreen that requires about 30 minutes to become effective.

PSA - It's not just pasty people who have to worry about melanoma. Everyone is at risk, and in fact those with more pigmentation in their skin are at higher risk due to an outdated fallacy that they are automatically protected from sunburn and skin cancer.

Source - Melanoma Rates in Moari, Asian and Pacific Islanders . The reason it's higher? Because there's this stupid idea out there that people with darker pigmented skin don't burn and thus don't need sunscreen.

Reminder - EVERYONE should use sunscreen.

Simply put, if you have skin, you can get skin cancers.

You're welcome.

I didn't even know this was thing until a couple of years ago when my brother in law mentioned not needing sunscreen because of his skin colour because he's Māori. Living in NZ, with a hole in the Ozone layer, we already have a high amount of skin cancer.

Add in a disproportionate amount of the population who don't get regular medical care due racial factors and the idea that has been perpetuated by the medical profession that sunscreen isn't needed because of what race you are and how tan your skin is, and yea, it becomes a matter of literal life and death.

I am sick of losing friends and family due to preventable deaths due to outdated information that pervades the medical system.

u/tozpeak Jun 30 '22

I'm interested why people have less dark skin though. Is it because fixed amount of sun should actually pierce the skin? Is it because synthesis of melanin is hard and it'a about resource economy?

49

u/lunelily Jun 30 '22

Good question! It’s explained in the link :)

The twin role played by the skin – protection from excessive UV radiation and absorption of enough sunlight to trigger the production of vitamin D – means that people living in the lower latitudes, close to the Equator, with intense UV radiation, have developed darker skin to protect them from the damaging effects of UV radiation. In contrast, those living in the higher latitudes, closer to the Poles, have developed fair skin to maximize vitamin D production.

41

u/ngatiara Jun 30 '22

Just to be clear - gives some protection. Does not give perfect protection. So everyone of all races and colours should still use sunscreen for protection.

There is an outdated theory that people of colour do not need sunscreen because the colour of their skin will always protect them. In NZ we know that's not the case as there is a higher rate of skin cancer in Māori and Pacific Islanders due to those populations often not wearing sun screen.

My niece is Māori and her daycare even cited this theory when they refused to put sunscreen on her - you don't need it because you can't burn. Her Māori father believed it was true as well. It is an outdated theory that does real harm and damage.

So while its the case that darker skin developed as protection it does not provide full protection and EVERYONE should use sun screen regardless of skin colour. If you have skin you can get skin cancer!

First of all, anyone who would refuse to put sunscreen on a child is dumber than a box of rocks.

Second of all, I’ve finally convinced my very dark skinned mom to start regularly wearing sunscreen, at least in the summertime. We live in a temperate climate in Europe so the sun isn’t trying to murder us year round. It’s something that’s never come up for her really. She’s never had a sunburn or really thought about them, which sucked for me, a very much not dark skinned but still naturally tanned child who ended up inadvertently showing her the hard way that I needed sunscreen. I’ll never forget how much that first sunburn hurt and I was like 6 when it happened. I couldn’t even wear a shirt or properly lay down for two days it was so bad.

But with summers getting hotter and the sun showing up a little earlier every year she realized she at the very least should be perfecting herself from potential skin cancer.

Pro Tip: For the eye area, use a mineral sunscreen like zinc or something for babies. It won’t burn or make your eyes water and you’ll get the coverage you need on your most sensitive skin!

I usually start with the mineral on my eyes and then move on the my regular face sunscreen for the rest of my face.

For real, I have almost always my hair in a middle part and around 10 years ago I burned my scalp there!

u/Triairius Jun 30 '22

Scalp sunburns freaking suck

u/bye_Nillu Jun 30 '22

I'd say! Just combing my hair was a nightmare. I learned my lesson, however, so now I always wear a hat or have an umbrella.

It'd be interesting to see what tanlines look like in visible vs UV. See how a tan compares to sunscreen in terms of opacity.

I'm confused, isn't darker supposed to mean that it absorbs more uv light?

12

u/SATXS5 Jun 30 '22

The dark color blocks the UV rays from entering the cell and from damaging the skin. This is why people who live in certain areas of the world developed dark skin as protection from the sun. Alternate to that, people who lived in areas with less sun have whiter skin so that some sun can be absorbed which your body uses to produce things like vitamin D.

u/V8-6-4 Jun 30 '22

But you could probably achieve the same result with some lotion that is very reflective for UV radiation.

u/SATXS5 Jun 30 '22

Yes, that's called sunblock which reflects all light away and works different than sunscreen.

u/Somethingrich Jun 30 '22

This whole time it was the sunscreen that was racist lol

u/vitorkrazy Jun 30 '22

Genuine question: Can somenoe please explain to me how does a sunscreen lotion actually work? Like chemically speaking... What is it doing to our skin in order to protect it?

6

u/tiptoemicrobe Jun 30 '22

There's a nice overview here: https://www.livescience.com/32666-how-does-sunscreen-work.html

Tldr: sunscreen generally shouldn't be reacting chemically to your skin. Rather, it's just a physical barrier that blocks the UV rays from hitting your skin.

A suit of armor would do the same thing, but it's worse for swimming.
