Why does SPF All Year Round Matter for Women over the age of 50?
Understanding the Winter Sun
UVA vs. UVB Rays
Our SPF Serum is effective as it considers both UVA and UVB rays. In winter, it's primarily UVB rays that pose a threat. UVA rays, known as "long wave" rays, make up 95% of the sun's daily radiation. They penetrate the skin deeply, promoting the formation of wrinkles, dark spots, and even melanoma. UVA rays can pass through clouds and certain types of glass, which means that even on gloomy days or when you're in your car, you may still be exposed to their damage.
UVB rays, or "short wave" rays, affect only the epidermis and are responsible for those uncomfortable sunburns. While they are less likely to penetrate glass, they can bounce off reflective surfaces like snow.
Year-Round UVA Concerns
Though both UVA and UVB rays warrant caution year-round, it's UVA rays that should be your primary concern during winter. These rays can reach you indoors if you're near a window or spend extended periods driving, potentially leading to photoaging. You may have noticed that your right arm, exposed to sunlight through a car window, is more tanned or freckled than your left.
The Need for Winter SPF
So, the question remains: do you really need to wear SPF in winter, even when you're indoors most of the time? The answer is yes, especially if the UV index is three or higher. Even on days when you plan to stay indoors, the likelihood of stepping out for errands or commuting in your car is significant. If you do plan on spending time outdoors, the need for SPF is even more apparent.
Without the blazing sun as a constant reminder, it's easy to forget to apply your SPF. However, protecting your skin is an investment in your long-term beauty and health. Think of daily SPF as your insurance plan for maintaining good, healthy skin. Your skin's well-being is worth every moment spent safeguarding it from the sun's rays, regardless of the season.
