Sunscreen – facts and myths

You won’t get a tan at all!

Did it happen to you that someone came with “good advice” and said that spreading sunscreen is pointless, because you won’t get a tan at all and “it won’t show that you’re on vacation”? Rest assured, it will be seen. As far as we know, the sign of a successful vacation is a smile and fond memories, not sunburn and peeling skin, and it is sunscreens that protect against them. You can get a healthy tan even by using the highest possible sunscreen, as none provides 100% sun protection.

Once mentioned – it is not possible to provide complete sun protection with a cream, when even the material of jeans provides only 80% protection.

To summarize:
Using a sunscreen, you won’t get a tan at all – MIT, but you will guard against burning.


Different sources state differently – you only need to apply sunscreen once, others say you need to reapply. To clarify this issue, it is necessary to present how a sunscreen works: its task is to absorb radiation of a given wavelength (we are talking about a chemical filter), so that its negative effects do not affect our skin. However, as a brand we pride ourselves on honesty, so we say it straight – no sunscreen can protect us all day long. Application must be repeated preferably every three hours. In summer, when our skin sweats, it is natural for the cream to wear off and stop working faster.

To summarize:
Application of sunscreen needs to be repeated throughout the day – TRUE

White marks

Talking to clients in salons and clinics, as well as in our chats on social media, we encourage the use of photoprotection not only during the vacations. The sun reaches our skin all year round. We often forget this, and yet it is true.

On this occasion, we will dispel one more myth. White marks from the sunscreen. On the beach – they don’t bother, because the vast majority of the vacationers accompanying us also have them. Others have fresh, red tans or skin coming off. We don’t want to have white marks every day when we go to work or run our errands in the city. Therefore, it is worth using creams suitable for daily use. City SUN is a chemical filter – it does not whiten, it does not leave white marks. It was designed to keep up with people living at the pace of the city.

To summarize:
Any sunscreen leaves white marks – MIT

There are better creams for the morning

We have also found a solution to this problem. Many people prefer a cream for the morning that will moisturize, provide antioxidant protection, and at the same time be light enough to put makeup on.

City SUN meets the above requirements. In addition to the highest possible sun protection, it provides hydration to the skin, protects it from free radicals, does not whiten (as above), and absorbs quickly, so it can easily be a base for makeup! We’ll add more – it also protects the skin from blue light*, which is emitted by the screens of electrical devices that surround us from all sides; smartphones, tablets, computers and televisions.

*a little-known fact that blue light penetrates deeper into the skin and causes even more damage than UVA and UVB rays.

To summarize:
It’s better to apply anything other than sunscreen in the morning – depends on the cream? If you have City SUN, at hand, the answer is – MIT


City SUN SPF50+ – a cream from a line created for people living in the city who are in a hurry and require effectiveness and results “right now”. It provides protection from sunlight and blue light, which accompanies us almost constantly.

City SUN BODY SPF30 – was created to complement the first in the line of sunscreen designed for use on the face. Larger capacity, equally hygienic packaging and convenient bottle.
