Zinc Sun Care and Summer Skin
Summer is rapidly approaching and it is time to once again stock up on sunscreens and
hats. Sunrays can have a detrimental effect on the skin, so it is very important to protect the skin from too much sun exposure. Sun damage to the skin can show up almost
immediately and will also appear over time. Different sunrays have different effects on the
skin. A great way to remember the difference is by the letter A or B. UVA rays or ‘aging rays’ cause wrinkles, pigmentation and cancer. UVB rays or ‘burning rays’ are the rays that cause a tan and sunburn. These rays also age the skin but do not penetrate as deep as UVA rays.
