Sun Safety

 

What are UV Rays?
  • The sun’s UV radiation is the major cause of premature aging, eye damage, sunburn and skin damage which can lead to skin cancers.
  • UVA penetrates into the skin more deeply than UVB, and plays a major role in skin aging and wrinkling.
  • UVB results in sunburn and plays a major role in the development of skin cancers.

Therefore, using a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects from both UVA and UVB rays is crucial.

SPF 30+ vs SPF 50+
  • SPF 50+ provides only slightly more protection from UVB rays that SPF 30+ (96.7 vs 98) as research has indicated from the cancer council.
  • Therefore, is it important that sunscreen is applied liberally, every 1-2 hours, especially if you have been swimming, sweating or have towel dried your body.
Why sunscreen may not work?
  1. The application of sunscreen is applied unevenly, therefore resulting in missing an area of skin.
  2. Not applying enough sunscreen to our body, including our face.
  3. Not reapplying the sunscreen frequently enough.
  4. Not replying sunscreen after swimming, towel drying or excessive sweating.
  5. Relying only on sunscreen for sun protection and not wearing sunglasses, hat and clothing and avoiding prolonged sun exposure.
  6. Not using a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects from both UVA and UVB rays.
  7. Spending long periods of time in the sun.
