Your guide to

Sun Protection

Protected sun exposure is essential for Vitamin D production, which plays a vital role in bone health and immune function. However, too much sun can be detrimental, leading to premature aging, sunburn, and increasing your risk of skin cancer. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is crucial for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin. This doesn’t mean you have to avoid sunshine altogether, but rather practice sun safety measures like using sunscreen daily and seeking shade during peak sun hours.

Why Sun Protection is Vital

The sun emits ultraviolet (UV) rays, categorized as UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin, contributing to wrinkles and age spots. UVB rays burn the skin’s surface and are a major risk factor for skin cancer. Daily sun protection helps shield your skin from these damaging rays, promoting long-term skin health.

1. Find Your Perfect SPF

Broad-Spectrum SPF is Essential

Don’t settle for partial protection. Medical-grade sunscreens are formulated for maximum defense against the sun’s harmful rays. Unlike some consumer-grade options, medical-grade sunscreens guarantee broad-spectrum protection, shielding your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Additionally, rigorous testing ensures the SPF rating accurately reflects the level of protection you’re getting. Invest in peace of mind with medical-grade SPF for comprehensive sun protection.

2. Protect Beyond the Beach

Daily Protection is Key

Sun damage isn’t seasonal! UVA rays, the primary culprit behind premature aging, penetrate your skin year-round, even on cloudy days. Make sun protection a daily habit, applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen to exposed areas like your face, neck, hands, and ears. This daily defense helps shield your skin from UVA rays and keep it looking youthful and healthy.

UVA & UVB: What's the Difference?

UVA RAYS: 

  • Responsible for accelerating signs of Aging, as they penetrate into the dermis (deeper layer of the skin).
  • Intensity is the same throughout the whole year.
  • Able to pass through windows and clouds.
  • Causes damage in the skin that leads to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and loss of elasticity.

UVB RAYS: 

  • Main cause of sun Burns, as they mainly effect the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin).
  • Intensity varies as the seasons change.
  • Play a large role in the development of skin cancer.
