Just because it’s after Labor Day…don’t pack away the Sun protection!
Summer may be officially over, the kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter. While you might be packing the beach towels away in favor of the Halloween decorations, now is not the time to stop the sun protection
September is still a hot month with strong UV rays, in Los Angeles we’re expecting temps around 100 this weekend!
Even after the temperatures drop and the sun isn’t’ blazing so high in the sky, it still emits those UV rays that damage your skin, so your sun protection needs to remain within reach.
In fact what many don’t know is sun exposure can be damaging even in the cold winter months. While UVB rays, )responsible for redness and burning), are weaker in the mornings, afternoons and non-summer months, UVA rays are at their full strength all day all year long, and they pass through glass!
UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply than UVB causing wrinkling and long-term damage which may not show up for many years
So keep your UV Protective clothing to hand, along with a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and sun screen.
