smoking, be warned: exposing yourself to sunlight is especially good for you, since the action of the sun, has just been demonstrated, mitigates the damage caused by cigarette smoke. To break the news is a Swedish study just published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, a study conducted on 30 thousand women.
"The study started in 1990 involved Swedish women between the ages of 25 and 64 - said Girolomoni, Director of Dermatology in Verona and president of the Italian Society of Dermatology - and clearly demonstrated that avoiding the sun hurts. In fact, women who expose themselves to the sun have a lower risk of cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke) and survive longer, 0.6-2.1 years more to be precise. It's not over here. Sun exposure compensates for the harmful effects of cigarette smoking. The benefits are related to the fact that the skin exposed to the sun produces greater quantities of vitamin D ".
It is not only vitamin D that does well; skin cells also produce beta endorphins which are responsible for the sense of experience e contentment and perhaps also of the addiction that many people feel in exposing themselves to the sun. The skin in the sun also releases nitric oxide which is able to lower blood pressure, but it should never be forgotten that the sun also promotes skin aging and the development of skin tumors such as epitheliomas or melanomas.
Using the cream is always the imperative, especially for those who have fair skin and are exposed to the sun for the first time of the year.
