The sun’s UV rays do it all!

Sunlight is the main source of UV radiation, even though UV rays make up only a small portion of the sun's rays.  UVA rays cause skin aging and eye damage and can lower your body's ability to fight off illness.

If you continuously get sunburns, it can lead to damage that can cause skin cancer, premature wrinkling, and many other skin issues.

 An estimated 1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with it during their lifetime, and sometimes it can become deadly. You can lower your risk of developing these diseases using a minimum SPF fairy multiple times each day. For even more protection, you can use a higher-level SPF. Wearing sunscreen each day helps to prevent inflammation from harmful rays.

 UV ABCs

A is for aging skin. B is for burns. C is for cancer. The sun’s UV rays do it all — not pretty! 

 UVA 

They’re the primary contributor to photoaging and some skin cancers. They can penetrate windows, water, and clouds.

UVB 

UVB exposure causes sunburn and other damage, directly harming your DNA and causing most skin cancers. So, despite some claims, no, special UVB-only tanning beds are not safe. 

 UVC 

While UVC rays are extremely damaging, they are of least concern, because they are completely absorbed by the ozone layer. Certain old-school tanning beds are among your only exposure risks, along with welding torches, mercury lamps, and special bacteria-killing light bulbs. 

Sun exposure is the most serious problem for the youth's skin and is responsible for an estimated 85% of skin aging, including wrinkles, texture, dark spots, and more.

Sunscreen is the ultimate beauty must-have for skin care and health. You can protect your skin with:

  1. Zinc oxide – Physically blocks against wavelengths all the way from short UVBs to long UVAs.
  2. Titanium dioxide – Also a physical block, it gives good protection against UVBs and some UVAs.
