The Difference Between UVA and UVB Rays
UVB rays penetrate the top layer of skin and cause sunburn; however, UVA rays go deeper below the skin, causing most of skin aging, which leads to wrinkles, discoloration, and loss of skin firmness.
UVA Rays Damage the DNA and are the #1 Cause of Skin Aging
When UVA rays go beneath the skin, they damage the skin’s DNA and hinder its natural repair process, causing aging. There are two types of UVA rays: short wavelength and long wavelength. Many sunscreens do not provide adequate UVA protection, filtering only long UVA rays.
UVA Rays are Present Year-Round
UVA rays are able to pass through glass and clouds and are present all year long, rain or shine. So everyday the skin receives more UVA than UVB rays.
