Sun Care FAQs
Is Sunscreen necessary? Why is the sun so bad for your skin?
There is really no excuse not to put on sunscreen. Aside from pigmentation, brown spots and premature ageing, the risk of skin cancer is heightened without the use of sunscreen.
Ultra Violet rays from the sun dehydrate and age your skin. While most people think a tan is desirable, what you actually see is the pigment Melanin protecting the skin from serious damage. U.V. Light sets up a reaction in the deeper layers of the skin which causes cellular damage.
U.V. is believed to be the cause of 80 – 90% of skin ageing, so it makes sense to protect your face if you are worried about lines and wrinkles, or better still use a self tan cream. Over exposure to U.V. can also cause skin cancers which can be life threatening, so always take care to use protection in strong sun.
Sunblock with both UVA and UVB filters
