What makes beam bum products special?

What makes Beam Bum products special is their unique, high quality formula which aims to satisfy the needs of people who are exposed to extreme conditions, such as the violent wetting during sea sports, the prolonged sun exposure, the profuse sweating or the prolonged accommodation in the countryside.

To whom are the beam bum sunscreen products are addressed?

The criteria for choosing a sunscreen for many people may be the easy application, the brand name or the fragrance, and not the quality or the duration of the protection. When the choice concerns athletes though, and even more champions, there is no doubt that the quality of the sunscreen must be the best possible. Beam Bum sunscreens are the designed exclusively for athletes, professionals and amateurs, involved in mountain and sea activities.

Why is the quality of the sunscreen vital when it concerns sports?

Everyone who is into sports knows very well that every detail matter and reflects the outcome. The sunscreen, which is used by athletes, besides high protection, must also be completely water resistant, so that it will not go off with sweat or sea water.  This way, painful tingling in the eyes and unpleasant skin texture, elements which reduce the athlete’s performance, are avoided. At the same time long lasting protection from the sun is offered.

Why is sun protection necessary?

Sun protection is necessary because the skin’s decay from sun exposure takes place gradually, regardless of whether a sunburn is caused or not. Beam Bum sunscreens offer protection even to the most sensitive skins as they prevent the penetration of the dangerous UVA and UVB rays.

What is SPF (Sun Protection Factor)?

The SPF (Sun Protection Factor) is designed to indicate the level of protection offered by a sunscreen against acute sunburn. The SPF is calculated by comparing the time it takes to burn a protected with sunscreen skin to the time it takes to burn the same skin when unprotected. So, for example, if one wears a sunscreen with an SPF 30 it means that it would take him/her 30 times longer to burn than if he/she wasn’t wearing any sunscreen at all. The higher the SPF, the better the protection offered.

What sunscreen should I use?

The American Academy of Dermatology recommends everyone use sunscreen that offers the following:

  • Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays)
  • SPF 30 or higher
  • Water resistance

When should I use sunscreen?

Every day if you will be outside. The sun emits harmful UV rays year-round. Even on cloudy days, up to 80 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin. Snow, sand, and water increase the need for sunscreen because they reflect the sun’s rays.

How much sunscreen should I use, and how often should I apply it?

  • Most people only apply 25-50 percent of the recommended amount of sunscreen.
  • Apply enough sunscreen to cover all skin that clothing will not cover. Most adults need about 30ml — approx. 2 tablespoons — to fully cover their body.
  • Don't forget to apply to the tops of your feet, your neck, your ears and the top of your head.
  • Apply sunscreen to dry skin 15 minutes before going outdoors.
  • Skin cancer also can form on the lips. To protect your lips, apply a lip balm that contains sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • When outdoors, reapply sunscreen approximately every two hours, or after swimming or sweating, according to the directions on the bottle.

What is the difference between chemical and physical sunscreens?

Chemical sunscreens work like a sponge, absorbing the sun’s rays. They contain one or more of the following active ingredients: avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene and homosalate. These formulations tend to be easier to rub into the skin without leaving a white residue.


Physical sunscreens work like a shield, sitting sit on the surface of your skin and deflecting the sun’s rays. They contain the active ingredients zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. Opt for this sunscreen if you have sensitive skin.

Can I use the sunscreen I bought last summer, or do I need to purchase a new bottle each year? Does it lose its strength?

Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen every day when you are outside, not just during the summer. If you are using sunscreen every day and in the correct amount, a bottle should not last long. If you find a bottle of sunscreen that you have not used for some time, here are some guidelines you can follow:


  • The relevant regulatory authorities require that all sunscreens retain their original strength for at least three years.
  • Some sunscreens include an expiration date. If the expiration date has passed, throw out the sunscreen.
  • If you buy a sunscreen that does not have an expiration date, write the date you bought the sunscreen on the bottle. That way, you’ll know when to throw it out.
  • You also can look for visible signs that the sunscreen may no longer be good. Any obvious changes in the color or consistency of the product mean it’s time to purchase a new bottle.

How does the Beam Bum After Sun gel help your skin?

The natural ingredients, mainly Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, St John’s Balsam oil and Panthenol, which are contained in the After Sun gel moisturize and relief the skin that is troubled by the sun, while at the same time offer relief from a possible redness and soothe the consequences of burn.

Why use a specialized after-sun product instead of a usual moisturizer?

The usual moisturizing products are based on oils that block moisture, which means that they trap heat in our skin if we apply them after sun redness, thus worsening the feeling of heat and inflammation. On the contrary, after-sun moisturizers are essentially lightweight moisturizers with a high-water content and minimal moisture-blocking ingredients. We need to look for a formula with a high-water content. This is necessary to help our skin recover from inflammation. The use of light lotions or gels allows heat to escape and helps the skin to cool down.

What else can I do to prevent my skin from dehydrating because of sun exposure?

Regularly drink water during sun exposure. Prefer foods high in water, such as fruits (watermelon, melon, grapefruit, strawberries and oranges) and vegetables (cucumber, iceberg lettuce, zucchini, celery, radish, tomato, pepper, broccoli and carrots). Avoid foods that dehydrate you, such as processed foods as well as foods that contain sugar or salt and, of course, alcohol. Do not let the sea water dry on your skin. Wipe it off or, even better, take a shower, if possible. Avoid exfoliation after sun exposure.
