Everyday, we go out and get exposed to the sun. During summer,where sun’s rays and hot weather is at its extreme, we usually enjoy going out on the beach or take a swim in the pool not knowing that sun’s rays can damage our skin. Exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light, UVA or UVB, from sun can cause 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging. Common skin changes due to aging, such as easy bruising, wrinkles, discoloration of skin are actually a result of prolonged exposure to UV radiation. Did you know that even if it is not sunny there UV Rays can still penetrate to our skin?

What is UVA/UVB?

UVB Radiation
UVB affects the outer layer of skin, the epidermis, and is the primary agent responsible for sunburns. It is the most intense between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm when the sunlight is brightest. It is also more intense in the summer months accounting for 70% of a person’s yearly UVB dose. UVB does not penetrate glass.

UVA Radiation
UVA was once thought to have a minor effect on skin damage, but now studies are showing that UVA is a major contributor to skin damage. UVA penetrates deeper into the skin and works more efficiently. The intensity of UVA radiation is more constant than UVB without the variations during the day and throughout the year. UVA is also not filtered by glass.

So how are we going to protect our skin from these damaging radiations from the sun? Here’s how…By using high SPF sunblocks.

Ultra Screen MD Sunblock is the latest skin protection product from Kohl Industries Corporation that can help you stay protected against the harmful effects of excessive exposure to the sun.

Ultra Screen MD Sunblock is a dermatologically-tested sunblock that helps reduce the risk of skin damage and aging due to the too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light emitted by the sun.

It has a SPF (sun protection factor) ranging from 60 to 70 that signifies longer protection against UVB. SPF measures how much exposure your skin can take before it gets burnt with the sunblock.

With Ultra Screen MD Sunblock’s broad spectrum, your skin is not only protected from UVB, but also from UVA, which is attributed to cause skin cancer.

Plus, Ultra Screen MD is hypoallergenic that makes it applicable to any skin type, without the harm of irritation. It is also easy absorbent making it practical to use, since you only need a little amount of Ultra Screen MD Sunblock to lather into your skin for protection.

It is best to apply generously and evenly unto skin, 15 minutes before exposure to sunlight. Re-apply at frequent intervals after swimming and towel drying.

Ultra Screen MD is your all-in-one sunblock since this can be applied both to your face and body. So, less hassle for you to buy two sunblock products separately.
