WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UVA AND UVB RAYS?
UVA and UVB rays are ultraviolet radiation (part of the light spectrum) that comes from the sun. Ultraviolet rays are shorter than visible light, which is why you can ’t see them with your naked eye.
UVB rays hit your skin ’s surface and can turn you lobster-red. Ouch! UVA rays have longer wavelengths than UVB and can penetrate deeper into your skin, causing aging and long-term damage. Both UVA and UVB rays can cause skin cancer. Double ouch!
HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF FROM THE SUN ’S HARMFUL RAYS?
- Avoid the sun ’s strongest rays and seek shade between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
- Sunscreen doesn ’t have a seasonal preference: Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring –wear sunscreen year-round.
- Listen and look: Don ’t neglect your ears, eyes, lips, and nose. These facial areas are often overlooked and need coverage, too.
- Watch out for the trucker ’s arm! Your left arm often rests on the door ledge by the window when you drive. Arm yourself with sunscreen.
Doing yard work? Taking a stroll? Wear a broad-brimmed hat and protective clothing. Hold the fabric up to a light; if the light doesn ’t shine through, your clothing is a sun-blocker. Look for clothes with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 30 or higher. Cover all body areas and use sunscreen as well!
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD
Be sure your child wears a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. When outdoors for an extended time, they should use a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
- Apply sunscreen over your child ’s entire body before going outside. Reapply every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating or towel drying.
- Water-resistant, spray-on sunscreens are perfect for toddlers who won ’t sit still. Tear Free and Sting Free products designed for toddlers help keep sunscreen application and reapplication hassle-free.
- Keep newborns in the shade or sheltered beneath sun umbrellas or canopies; use sunscreen on all babies over six months old. For babies under 6 months, consult your doctor before using.
