03 Jun Sun Safety
Know Your Rays
UVB radiation affects the outermost layer of skin (epidermis) and is the primary cause of sunburns. It is most intense between the hours of 10 a.m and 2 p.m. when the sunlight is at its brightest. It is also more intense during the summer months, accounting for around 70 percent of a person’s yearly UVB exposure. Because of the wavelength, UVB does not penetrate glass easily.
UVA radiation, by contrast, was once thought to have only a minor effect on the skin. Studies have since shown that UVA is a major contributor to skin damage. UVA penetrates deeper into the skin with an intensity that doesn’t fluctuate as much as UVB. Unlike UVB, UVA is not filtered by glass.
For Healthy and Youthful skin wear SPF every day all year long.
