Sun Protection and limited sun exposure is essential against premature aging and skin cancer. Statistics show about 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers and 65% of melanomas are linked with UV radiation from sun exposure.
Sun damage is cumulative over the years and applying a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays is ideal. UVA (ultraviolet A) is a long radiation wave that causes skin damage, aging and possible cancer. UVB (ultraviolet B) is a shorter radiation wave that causes sunburns, skin damage and possible cancer.
