We love sun but…

Everyone should remember that sun is very dangerous for our skin.

There are lots of different types of rays present in sunlight. The most damaging to our skin are ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two basic types: UVB and UVA.

UVB
UVB affects the outer layer of skin and is the primary agent responsible for sunburns. UVB does not penetrate glass.

UVA
UVA was once thought to have a minor effect on skin damage but now studies are showing that UVA is a major contributor to skin damage. UVA is not filtered by glass.

Both of those rays are highly dangerous because they can damage the genetic material in our skin cells – their DNA, which can lead to skin cancer.

So what we can do???

Good skin protection is a key.  Use lotions or creams with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of at least 15. Children and people with pale skin should use a SPF 30 or SPF 50.

UV rays can damage the eyes too so we cannot forget about sunglasses (look for: UV 400 label and 100% UV protection). Too much UV can lead to cataracts as well as rare types of eye cancer.

Remember:
–          The most strongest and dangerous sunlight is between 10 am and 2pm!
–          Never forget about SPF lotion!
–          Wear sunglasses and huts!
–          Do not stay on the sun longer than 1 hour!
