Did you know your skin's exposure to UV rays is cumulative, starting from birth. And guess what? Just like skin cancer, UV rays can sneak up on you when you least expect it. A sunburn is the most obvious result of too much UV exposure, and your skin, which is the largest organ on your body, is collecting UV rays over the course of your lifetime. Damage from UV exposure significantly increases your risk of skin cancer and skin aging over time, as 1 out of 5 of us will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. This is why daily sun protection and annual skin checks are so important to your health.
You might be thinking, "This UV ray exposure stuff doesn't really apply to me. I never go outside." Unless you live in a cave without windows, and you never walk, ride your bike, travel in airplanes or cars, sit by windows without UV treatment, or see the light of day, you are collecting UV exposure, if you are not using proper sun protection. In addition to passing through untreated windows, here are some of the sneaky and commonly unknown elements which affect UVA/UVB ray intensity to your eyes and skin.
Still having doubts... read the news article below and see for yourself how hats and clothing are not created equal when it comes to sun protecting your skin.
