WHAT DOES SPF MEAN?
Sunscreen is an effective protective agent against damage from the sun’s powerful rays. Regular application lessens the chances of developing skin cancer, skin aging, age spots and other possible skin issues.
Sunscreen protects your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which come in 2 forms, UVA and UVB rays.
UVA rays are most commonly associated with skin aging, as these beams cause fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. This ray also has the ability to pass through glass.
UVB rays are most commonly associated with sunburns, and can not pass through glass. Both rays are cancer causing, which is why investing in a sunscreen that offers broad spectrum protection against both types is very important.
Using sunscreen keeps your skin healthier all around. It protects sensitive skin against sunburn and it reduces the appearance of sun damage - discolourations and dark spots, sagging or leathery skin and wrinkles.
