It’s officially fall today, 46 when I got up this morning and sunny and crisp right now. I had a new client this morning and when I asked if she is wearing sunscreen everyday said I only wear it when it is sunny!

I want to clarify a few misconceptions regarding UVA.

  • It is approximately the same strength year round
  • Is full strength year round
  • Penetrates glass
  • Is in fluorescent light bulbs
  • Strong at any altitude
  • Damages deeper in the skin than UVB

If you can change your mindset about sunscreen and think of it as anti-aging perhaps you won’t hesitate to use it daily!
