SPFs and how much sun they let in

Although this illustration looks compelling, it is only telling half the story. True, higher SPFs keep your outside skin from burning. But UVA, the longest sun ray that reaches our skin, still penetrates through sunscreens, and UVA is what causes a lot of long-term damagethe kind you don’t see until years later.
  
I have written many articles on sun exposure, sun damage, and skin cancer. Below are links to many of them. I hope you will read up on how to protect your skin in the sun, then go outside and enjoy yourself! Life is short so have fun in the sun, just don't neglect the protection part of the equation.
