With the warmer months approaching it is time to get serious about daily sun protection for your face in particular. Even on days that are overcast or raining, it is important to remember that day light, no matter what the weather conditions are, equals ultra violet radiation (UV) from the sun that is damaging to our skin.
There are 2 different types of UV, namely UVA and UVB. UVA is responsible for skin ageing and skin cancer as it penetrates to a deeper layer of the skin. UVB radiation causes sunburn, darkening and thickening of the outer layer of the skin, and causing melanoma and other skin cancer. 70 % of UV penetrates through glass, so we have little protection whilst driving.
