An Explaination of UVA and UVB Rays

UVA and UVB Rays and how it effects the skin
UVA and UVB Rays
UVA Rays are prevelant all year long, and the same intensity all day long.  They are the longest wavelength and penetrate the deepest into the skin going to the dermis layer.  Clouds and glass does not stop UVA rays, and many people may not understand that not all sunscreens stop UVA rays.  Tanning Booths are mostly UVA rays.  And unfortunately, UVA is the major component in aging skin.

UVB Rays are shorter in wave length and follow the rotation of the sun.  UVB is most prevalent in the summer, and at peak daylight hours.  UVB affects the top layer of skin called the epidermis.  UVB is the culprit of sunburns, redness and skin cancer.  Clouds and glass as well as all sunscreens protect against UVB rays.
