Ultraviolet light (or UV) is a part of the light spectrum associated with damaging human tissue. Unlike other light rays, UV rays penetrate deep into your skin and can cause skin cells to mutate. The rays come from the sun, the single largest natural source of light. Even if the sun is covered by clouds, these light rays stream through and pose a threat to your skin cells. Another source of UV rays includes fluorescent lights used in work places. Ultimately, these rays can cause damage to your skin.
How can I protect myself from UV rays?
To protect your skin, it is recommended to apply sunscreen daily. Although many apply sunscreen during the summer months, it is important to apply it during winter months as well. A variety of conditions can benefit from its application. Sunscreen is for every day, every weather, and every place (both indoors and out!).
