UVA Rays v UVB Rays

UVA rays are often referred to as the "aging rays" because of its unique characteristics:

  • pass through glass (office & cars)
  • penetrate deep into the skin layers
  • are present ALL 365 calendar days regardless of weather or altitude
  • are 20 times more abundant than UVB

UVB rays are considered burning rays because they cause sunburn and tanning; and vary with seasons, i.e., stronger in the summer

Choose sun block with "broad spectrum protection"- (which provides protection form BOTH UVA and UVB rays)
