The damage that UVA and UVB can cause to skin is widely known, but did you know that visible light and infrared-A (emitted from the sun) are also proven to cause damage to skin health and cause premature skin ageing?
While UVB is more harmful in the summer months, UVA, visible light and infrared-A can cause damage all year round. They can penetrate cloud and even glass, damaging skin cells and releasing millions of harmful free radicals deep into your skin. So rather than sun protection, we need to think about daylight protection.
The damage that these harmful rays cause within the skin can lead to thick leathery skin, lines and wrinkles and uneven areas of pigmentation - not to mention the damage it causes to your skin health, which in worst cases can lead to skin cancer.
