UVA rayspenetrate deep into the dermis (the skin’s thickest layer) and can lead to premature aging and wrinkling of the skin, as well as immune suppression when left unprotected. Even when you’re gardening it’s important to seek shelter in somewhere like a utility shed, as it’s surprising just how little exposure you need in order to cause damage.
UVB rayswill usually burn the superficial layers (the epidermis) of your skin.
It only takes 15 minutes to begin to see the damaging effects of this ultraviolet light.
LIQUID SUN PROTECTION
Liquid Sun Protection comes in two different forms; Sunblock and Sunscreen. Here at Le Reve Organic Spa & Boutique you will find sun protection in every form.
Sunblock is also referred to as a physical block or mineral defense sun protection system. This is a recommended type of sun protection for anyone who is outdoors for extended periods of time. With sunblock minerals such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide create a barrier against both the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Sunblock is typically thicker and because the minerals used in sunblock are usually white in color a slight cant may remain visible when applied to the skin. If you are concerned with looking pale because of sunblock, rest assured that these products which do leave a slightly visible mineral appearance are subtle. Additionally, it is important to note that this form of liquid sun protection cannot be beat by the chemical sunscreen method. If you are only interested in a sunblock or mineral defense sun protection product then La Bella Donna Translucent Sun Protection, Eminence Tomato Day Cream, or the Sea & Summit Sun Stickis for you!
If you are admit that sunblock is not for you, all then you have two remaining options: Liquid Sunscreen or a Combination of sunblock and sunscreen together.
Sunscreen is also referred to as chemical sun protection. This form of liquid sun protection is more lightweight and virtually transparent. With sunscreen chemicals such as oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate are included in the skincare product to screen the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays. These chemical additives absorb and disperse UVB rays, preventing them from penetrating skin. Sunscreen can and should be used on a daily basis for regular activity like your work commute. If you are interested in this type of sun protection then Eminence Tropical Vanilla Day Cream, Tropical Vanilla Body Sunscreen and Jurlique Sun Specialistare for you!

ADDITIONAL METHODS OF SUN PROTECTION
There are also a few things aside from our main defense; wearing sunblock and/or sunscreen that we can do to help lower our chances of UV skin damage.The first defense; avoid prolong exposure to the sun. This is the easiest and most sure-proof way to protect your skin. However, for many of us, the idea of limiting your time outside when the sun is shining is simply not an option. If this last statement is true for you remember these other defenses. The second defense; wear hats. Sporting a sexy summer hat with a wide brim does more than just make you look super chic, it protects your face , neck, and decolletté from direct sun light. Make sun protection a fashion statement! Our third defense; long sleeve shirt and pants.
Simply combine all of these defenses with your sunscreen and/or sun block and become the poster-child for great healthy skin!
