What Makes the Sun so Dangerous?
Sun exposure is harmful due to the invisible ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. There are two types of harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays: Ultraviolet A (UVA) and Ultraviolet B (UVB).
UVA rays are not absorbed by the ozone layer and can penetrate the skin deeply. The majority of one’s sun exposure is made up of these rays. Although UVA rays are often thought of as the tanning rays, scientists have found a link between UVA radiation and malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
While UVB rays are mostly absorbed by the ozone layer, they are associated with sunburns. And, like UVA rays, they have also been linked to immune system damage which can lead to premature aging of the skin.
What Kind of Protection Should be Used?
It is import to start protecting your skin at a young age because the damaging effects of UV radiation do not typically surface until years after the damage has occurred. Use sunscreen that has an SPF of 15+ and provides a broad-spectrum of protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreen should be applied 20 minutes prior to sun exposure and then reapplied every two hours and after swimming or sweating, even on cloudy days.
