Your skin in the sun

Is there a term from the field of dermatology and cosmetics that you do not understand? Would you like to know what it means? View the full definition from the La Roche-Posay glossary.

Sun capital

Sun capital can be likened to a reservoir from which one drinks every time the skin is exposed to the sun. It allows you to fight the effects of a particular quantity of ultraviolet rays throughout your life. When this capital has been exhausted, skin can no longer protect itself from the sun's ferocity and damaged cells no longer repair themselves.

This word also belongs to the categories For sensitive or sun allergy-prone skin, Children's skin and the sun.
