Beaches, Coachella, and Pools – Oh My!
By Carissa St. Rose
As spring break approaches, many of us have plans that include some fun the sun. Before you get in vacation mode, make sure you’re fully stocked with sunblock and clothing to protect you from those UV rays – yes, a hat with your bikini counts as clothing, haha.
There are 2 types of ultraviolet rays – UVA, which are ultraviolet aging rays, and UVB, which are ultraviolet burning rays. Roughly 80% of visible aging can be attributed to UVA rays, while UVB rays are the main contributor to sunburns and skin cancers. As you can see, blocking absorption of UV rays is essential in saving your skin from disease and wrinkles.
If you’re not capable of shielding yourself from the sun 24/7, you’ll want to ensure sunblock is a part of your daily/spring break regimen. SPF 50 is my recommendation as it blocks 98% of harmful UV rays, and you must reapply every 2 hours (or sooner if you tend to burn quickly) to maintain optimal protection. DBH has a lovely sunblock that not only provides a sun protection factor 50 to protect you from UVB rays, it also provides the highest level of protection from UVA rays (Pa+++).
