How to protect your skin from both UVA & UVB rays

How to protect your skin from both UVA & UVB rays

Do you know the difference between UVA and UVB rays? They both damage the skin, but in quite different ways.

UVA rays travel the deepest into your skin -- they damage the dermal layer and are primarily responsible for causing signs of aging such as wrinkles. However, it's not the cosmetic damage they can cause that's the most serious worry -- they can also suppress your immune system.

UVB rays work on the surface layer of your skin, and are what cause sunburn. UVB light is a big factor in the development of skin cancer.

But it's not all doom and gloom, because there's an easy way to protect yourself from both!

There are many different chemical and mineral ingredients that protect from UVA + UVB rays, but only one of them *naturally* provides broad spectrum protection...
