UV protection

By In

Although the sun is vital, it emits harmful UV rays. Exposure to sun can therefore lead to wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer. The ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation in sunshine weakens the lower layer of skin over time and consequently stimulates the formation of wrinkles, brown spots, and most importantly, the development of skin cancer. It is for that reason that it is important to include in your daily routine UV protection, and to strive to re-apply protection regularly. Nevertheless, wearing sunscreen helps to decrease the effects of UV rays but it isn’t enough by itself: it is important to avoid exposure, especially at peak hours, by staying in the shade or wearing a hat, for example.
