UV Rays, Sunblock and You!

SPF Sunblock

UVC does not reach us as it is absorbed by the upper levels of the atmosphere.

UVA is the most dangerous as it penetrates deep into the skin. It degrades the elastic fibers in the skin, causes skin aging and darkening.

UVB penetrates the top layers of the skin, resulting in sunburn and the formation of wrinkles, dark spots and freckles.

Daily exposure to UVA and UVB rays has a cumulative effect on our skin. The more our skin is exposed to the sun, the higher the risk of potential skin damage.

However, if you are fair skinned or if you are planning to stay out under the sun for a long period, it’s advisable to get a product with a higher SPF.
