Shedding Light on Sun Exposure

  • Brown spots (sun spots)2
  • Faster skin aging1
  • Increased skin cancer risk1

UVA:

  • Penetrates skin more deeply than UVB1
  • Plays a major role in accelerating photoaging: wrinkles, skin roughening, blotchy skin color, brown spots, poor skin tone, sallowness2
  • Can contribute to development of skin cancer1

UVB:

  • Penetrates skin less deeply than UVA1
  • Is primary cause of sunburn1,3
  • Plays a key role in the development of skin cancer1
  • Contributes to photoaging1
