Get That Sunscreen Ready!
Summer is finally here. You need to remember to be careful about exposing yourself to the sun. The depletion of the ozone has led to an increase in harmful ultraviolet rays. There are 2 types of rays--UVA and UVB. UVB is what burns you. UVA is what causes damage a couple of layers down, causing premature aging.
There are more products on the market
with higher SPF (sun protection factor) but that
doesn't mean it works twice as good. An SPF
of 30 blocks out 96% of the UV rays. An SPF
of 60 blocks out 98%. Find a sunscreen that
protects you from both UVA and UVB rays.
