Getting a healthy tan, without risking your health or ageing your skin prematurely, has always been a fine balance. But now you can tip that balance in your favour by choosing a sunscreen that offers both UVA & UVB protection. Quick – take a look at what you are currently using and if it doesn’t contain both UVA and UVB protection, you’re doing your skin a major disservice.
Confused at what to choose. Well hopefully our short explanation should make it clearer. Understanding how the sun rays damage our skin will help you select the best protection for you. UVB rays are more intense and cause sunburn but UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply. UVA is around every day and can penetrate through window glass. Like UVB, it is related to an increased risk of skin cancer but, unlike UVB, it’s not filtered by the ozone. So UVA doesn’t cause sunburn, but, because it penetrates deeper into the skin these rays can cause significant sun damage, which leads to wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and other advanced signs of ageing.
