Summer is Coming – Remember To Protect!

Summer is approaching, we all are noticing the trees blossoming and the sun shining – Happy Days!

We love summer at White Orchid Rejuvenation Centre, it’s a wonderful time of year. It’s natural to think – ‘Oh, it’s summer I better pull out the sunscreen’ BUT did you know you need to protect your skin against harmful rays all year long? Here is a little breakdown…

The sunlight that reaches us is made up of two types of harmful rays: long wave ultraviolet A (UVA) and short wave ultraviolet B (UVB). Basically, UVA rays can age us and UVB rays can burn us. Overexposure to either can damage the skin. There’s also a third type of ray, UVC – these are the shortest and strongest, but thankfully they’re absorbed by the ozone layer and don’t typically reach the Earth.

UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer. Unprotected exposure can lead to premature skin aging and suppression of the immune system. And when your skin’s defenses are down, you’re at risk for skin cancer.

UVB rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin. The intensity of UVB rays vary by season, location and time of day, with 10AM to 4PM being the peak hours. Sunburned skin doesn’t just feel awful, it can cause permanent damage over time.

In order to maintain that beautiful youthful skin, you need to protect your skin ALL year long, not just when the sun is shining. We have a wide range of beautiful products to help protect you against harmful rays, come in today and see what brand is best for you.
