Protect Your Skin from the Sun’s Harmful Rays All Year


Even in the cold winter months the sun’s rays can cause skin damage and lead to skin cancer so it is important to protect yourself all year long.

The sun produces two types of harmful rays; UVA rays and UVB rays. UVA rays can pass through objects such as windows and even your clothing. Too much exposure to UVA rays can damage your top layer of skin and even reach your dermis. The dermis is a thick layer of skin that is designed to hold in moisture and maintain flexible skin. If the dermis is damaged by UVA rays it can cause wrinkles and saggy skin.

The second type of harmful rays produced by the sun are UVB rays. Sunburns and skin cancer are caused by UVB rays. These rays are stronger in the summer months although, you can still get sunburns if you are outside without protection in the winter months. The SPF or Sun Protection Factor, on sunscreens indicate how much protection you will receive from UVB rays only. This is why it is important to chose a sunscreen that states that it will protect you from both UVB and UVA rays.


Spending too much time outside in the sun without using sunscreen can lead to permanent skin damage, including skin cancer. Your skin may also look old and wrinkled if it is damaged by the sun. Make sure you apply sunscreen or lotion with an SPF protection before you spend time outside no matter what the season. You should also reapply your sunscreen every 15-20 minutes of sun exposure.

    What's a good moisterizer to use, or is there an spf that will protect from damage but till allow a tan or something? I only want to start tanning every once in while, not like five times a week or something.
