SPF - Not Enough
The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) number is not an accurate determination of a sunscreen's capability of protecting the skin from the sun's harmful rays. SPF is only an indication of protection from one wavelength of Ultraviolet light, the UVB (290nm*-320nm). UVB is the cause of early skin redness experienced during initial sun exposure. UVA (320nm - 400nm) is responsible for deeper skin damage, and many of the long term destructive changes that are harmful to the skin. Unfortunately there is no official rating system, to date, that measures a product's UVA protection.
*nm = nanometer which is a billionth of a meter
UVA - Same Everyday
UVA radiation, unlike UVB, is consistently the same all day long, all month long and all year long. UVA rays present almost the same damaging effects to the skin in December at 9 am, as they do in July at 4 pm. UVA radiation is consistently damaging, and in fact, enters deeper into the skin than UVB. Since UVA damage is cumulative and penetrates through glass, everyone requires daily, year round protection.
