Skin Health

You may have heard that when purchasing sunblock, you should look for one that offers both UVA and UVB protection, but what does that really mean? UVA are long rays and can penetrate the deep layers of our skin, leading to premature aging and wrinkles over time. UVB, on the other hand, are short rays and responsible for the burns we receive on the surface of our skin after a day in the sun. So, slather on the right sunblock and you’ll give yourself the greatest chance of keeping your skin healthy not only today, but also in the future.
