UV Rays And The Signs Of Ageing On Your Skin

Aug 11, 2017 10:30:00 AM Posted by: Mr. Fuan Chan

If you ask any skincare or medical professional about the one thing you should do to keep your skin looking healthy, most would say: ‘Protect it from the sun.’ The sun is essential for life but it can also be one of our biggest enemies when it comes to the skin. The sun’s UV rays can be responsible for skin cancer, which is a very common problem in Ireland (you can read more about it here) but it is also responsible for so many aspects of skin ageing.


Staying Safe In The Sun By Using SPF To Reduce The Risk Of Skin Cancer

One of the main lines of defence against developing skin cancer is protecting the skin from the harmful rays of the sun by using an SPF (sun protection factor) product every day. Our skin is exposed to the sun’s UV rays (UVA and UVB – there is also a UVC but this mostly burns off in the atmosphere and doesn’t pose a problem) all year round, no matter where we are. That means being sun smart and using SPF is as important here in Ireland, where it tends to be overcast, as it is when you go on holiday to sunnier climates.

Skin cancer and the dangers of UV rays are often associated with hot climates and holidays. Here in Ireland, there can be a tendency to overlook the danger of sun damage that can occur day-to-day as we don’t have a very warm or sunny climate. However, there is a worrying trend that is of particular concern to many Irish people, especially younger groups.

While we are still in the depths of winter, at this time of year thoughts most definitely turn to escaping to sunnier places. People are starting to plan holidays away and for most, it is a case of the sunnier the better. Some of us won’t even wait until the summer months but will pop away for a spring break to a warmer climate to help the winter go more quickly.
