Speaking of UV lights, the first things that come into our mind are always UVA and UVB, which are the two kinds of sunlight that we are normally exposed to. Both are invisible to humans but they can cause visible damages to our skin! To protect our skin from the UV rays, EVERYONE needs to wear sunscreen in daytime to ensure comprehensive protection!
Difference between UVA and UVB Rays
UVA is accounted for 95% of the UV radiation that reaches Earth’s surface, which is consistently present all day long, year-round, even when it is cloudy. Do you know UVA is powerful enough to pass through cloud, glass and epidermis? It is also believed that UVA is known to be the leading cause of skin-aging and wrinkle formation because it reaches through the dermis and damages the skin cells beneath.
UVB is considered to be the culprit of skin-reddening, premature aging and sunburn. It damages epidermis in the skin and leads to the development of skin cancer. The major difference between UVA and UVB is that the strengths of the latter are not always the same all year round; they are stronger in summertime.
Both UV rays are harmful to our skin. Keep in mind that the more you protect your skin, the lower risk you are prone to skin-aging, sunburn and skin cancer!
After knowing how UV radiation affects our skin, we have no choice but to wear sunscreen every single day! Not sure what to look for when selecting a sunscreen? No worries, we’ve got you covered!
For outdoor activities, we strongly recommend you to apply sunscreen with broad-spectrum coverage and an SPF of 50 or higher. Dermalogica Solar Defense Booster SPF50 is an ideal choice for you. It is a sunscreen supplement specifically formulated to add full spectrum protection to your favorite moisturizer or make-up product. It contains no artificial fragrance or color.
