Why you should still be wearing sunscreen during quarantine

  • UVA rays can still reach you through glass

Standard glass windows block UVB but not UVA rays, which can penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB rays, and are the main contributing factor to photo-ageing – which are changes seen as dark spots, wrinkles and leathery textured skin. So even though you might be indoors for most of the day, your skin is still being exposed to harmful UVA rays and it’s vital you keep your skin protected.

 

  • Protection from blue light

Evolving research has shown that blue light is damaging our skin. Blue light is emitted from the sun, screens on mobile phones, computers and TVs. Long-term blue light exposure can cause skin damage, including color changes, inflammation, and weakening of the skin’s surface. Simply put, blue light promotes stressors in skin that cause photo-ageing; so if you are working from your laptop or using your phone a lot during quarantine then you should be wearing SPF to protect your skin.

 

  • The sun still emits harmful UV rays even when there’s cloud cover

It’s cloudy out, so you don’t need protection right? Wrong! According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can pass through clouds. They also  estimated that 90% of ageing comes from sun damage and not the number of candles on your birthday cake. Every unprotected exposure contributes to possible damage at a cellular level. Spare your skin tomorrow and wear your sunscreen today.
