Embrace Your Skin With Sunscreen
A lot of people here are looking for the best sunscreen in Singapore, why? because we are sunny almost all year round ( except for the rainy days) Sunlight contains UVA (ultraviolet A) and UVB (ultraviolet B) radiation; the sun emits these two types of rays and reaches our skin. Both types damage unprotected skin in their destructive ways.
UVA: This has a long wavelength and holds 95% reaching the earth and our skin. They are present every single day, all year round. It can also penetrate glass, even on rainy or cloudy days.
These rays rapidly speed the ageing process, causing the skin to increase wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, crippled skin texture and damaging skin cells. They are also the leading cause of skin cancer.
UVB: This is a short wavelength. UVB does not penetrate or is exposed to the skin as much as UVA; however, it is potent and damaging on unprotected skin. These rays are present all year round but more dominant in hot climates and higher altitudes.
Did you know UVB rays are reflected from sand, water and snow (80%)? It is mainly responsible for superficial sunburn and skin damage, causing pigmentation issues, peeling and flaking. It can trigger tyrosinase production, melasma and cancer cells.
Blue light: The best sunscreen in Singapore needs a need kind of consideration, there is now another type of ultraviolet radiation, a modern one. It has a short wavelength but high amounts of damaging energy. These rays are released from our computers, cell phones, television, LED lighting, the sun- which we are all exposed to for hours every day.
This form of radiation may penetrate the skin, break down collagen and cause free radical damage.
Above, we can see how damaging UV damage can be on our skin. Therefore, we must protect our skin every day with only the best SPF in Singapore.
