Exposure to ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) radiation from the sun has a damaging effect on the skin, known as photoageing. UVB light is responsible for skin tanning, whilst UVA is a known cause of skin cancer. By protecting the skin with regular use of a broad-spectrum Sun Protection Factor (SPF) with UVA coverage, you can prevent skin damage including lines, wrinkles and pigmented age spots.
SPF, UVA, UVB? All too confusing? Dermatologists recommend daily use of a broad-spectrum (covering a wide range of wavelengths) UVA and UVB sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15.
