UV Ray Safety
The Sun can be your skin’s best friend – it provides vitally nourishing Vitamin D and a nice, warm feeling – but its UV rays could be harmful if you’re not careful and don’t take the right precautions. UV rays are invisible rays that are part of the energy produced by the sun and can burn the skin, leading to scarring, cause premature aging, leathery skin, liver spots, actinic keratosis, solar elastosis, and even skin cancer. Thus, it’s paramount that you keep your skin protected, especially in the summer months. The Sun emits 3 types of UV ray’s, UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVA and UVB are considered the most dangerous due to the way they penetrate the atmosphere – which can be a significant health risk.
While signs of premature aging like liver spots, actinic keratosis, solar elastosis, and leathery skin can certainly be annoying and unsightly, skin cancer is a serious, life-changing consequence of prolonged exposure to UV rays and even a simple sunburn can play a big role in developing melanoma – the most dangerous type of skin cancer. Thankfully, these effects can easily be prevented if you incorporate SPF products into your daily skincare routine.
A broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher is a must year round, as any dermatologist will tell you but in the Summer months you should be adding more sun protection into your skincare regimen. Both Oxygenetix Acne Control Foundation and Oxygenating Foundation have a built-in SPF 30 and can provide a flawless finish while also keeping your skin protected from both UVA and UVB rays.
