We all love the feeling of the sun on our skin, but unfortunately there are damaging rays hiding in that golden light.
Sunlight includes both UVA and UVB rays. The effects of UVB are well known to anyone who’s ever experienced sunburn: that red, tight, stinging burn from too much time out of the shade on a hot day. But UVA rays are much more subtle, and they shine through even on cool, cloudy days. As long as it is light, UVA rays are present. Even when it’s snowing. Even – shockingly – through glass, so being inside is no protection if you have big windows.
It’s this frequent exposure to UVA rays that causes damage to the dermis – that’s the thickest layer of your skin – causing sun damage such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and even skin cancer. Because of this, it’s essential to use sunscreen and include a moisturiser with SPF in your skincare every day.
