During the summer, many of us take every opportunity to be in the sun, but which of our common perceptions about how to protect ourselves from the sun are really true?
SVT Nyheter asked Magnus Crona at the Medical Products Agency to find out how much truth there is in things we think we know about sunbathing.
Is it true, for example, that you deprive your body of vitamin D if you have sunscreen?
Not really, says Magnus Crona.
- No sunscreen product provides complete protection against solar radiation.
A certain amount of solar radiation will always reach your skin and when you are out in the sun and exposed to UV radiation, the body produces vitamin D.
