We're covering everything under the sun 🌞 Swipe ➡️ to read all about UV exposure, UVA/UVB, and how to protect your skin!

What is UV exposure?

UV rays travel from the sun, through our atmosphere, and reflect off surfaces such as snow, water, sand, and pavement. They also penetrate through windows and clouds.

UV exposure is usually highest and most powerful between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

UVB rays = Damaged skin

The other 5% of UV rays are UVB.

They are the cause of sunburns and directly damage DNA and can be the cause of many skin cancers.

How to protect yourself

+ Choose sunscreen that offers “broad-spectrum protection”. This means it has the ability to block out both UVA and UVB rays. Try our Mineral Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 UVA & UVB Broad Spectrum.

+ SPF should be reapplied at least every 2 hours.

+ Wear SPF even when you’re inside and on cloudy days.

More ways to protect yourself

+ Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to provide additional protection to your ears and neck and eyes.

+ Routinely examine your skin for moles or spots that are new, changing, or unusually shaped.
