UVA (ages) UVB (burns)

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!
