Types of UV rays

Types of UV rays

The rays that represent a risk to our health are of two types: UVA and UVB.

UVA rays represent the majority of the rays radiated by the sun constantly, throughout
year, we are, therefore, always exposed to this type of rays. Their danger is linked to theirs
ability to penetrate deep into the layers of the dermis, causing skin aging and hence the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes.
UVB rays are less penetrating. They therefore stop at the level of the epidermis, stimulate the
production of melanin and give us the much sought after summer tan. However, the absorption of excessive UVB rays causes the release of irritating molecules in the epidermis, causing erythema sun, dehydration of the skin and hyperkeratosis.
It is important to protect our skin even in winter, why?
Winter sports enthusiasts should know that the combination of altitude and reflections of the
sun on snow causes more damage to the skin. When you are on the ski slopes, your skin is not
only exposed to cold, dry air and wind that increases dehydration but also to the sun. Furthermore, UVA and UVB rays are recognized to be among the leading causes of skin cancer. So it is important to choose a broad spectrum sunscreen, able to protect against both UVA rays and UVB rays.
So it is important not to underestimate the protection even in winter.
