LOS ALTOS, Calif. - Aug. 10, 2021 - PRLog -- According to the 2020 RealSelf Sun Safety Report, 62% of Americans use anti-aging products daily and have spent $14.2 Billion on those products, but only 11% wear sunscreen daily. Sun damage has long been a focal point in the health and beauty circuits as companies continue to create better and improved products to block the harmful UVA (longwave Ultra Violet A) and UVB (shortwave Ultra Violet B) rays from the sun.

Master of non-surgical facial rejuvenation and internationally recognized anti-aging specialist, Richard Haxton explains, "The sun can penetrate the skin with UVA and UVB rays regardless of whether it is overcast or not.  In fact, even when it's overcast the skin still absorbs 80% of the sun's rays.  This presents a huge issue when it comes to accelerated aging - for example, the lines and wrinkles one sees at 30 years of age can be from the sun exposure before they were 14 years of age.  Ultra Violet Rays are the shortest in the light spectrum - invisible to the eye, they have the catastrophic ability to burn and damage the skin with sunburns, accelerated aging and even cancer.  Sun screens have long been used to combat the sun's rays and while no sunscreen will give you 100% protection against the sun; you can take a look at the SPF to see what will be the best blockage."

As a standard, an SPF 30 will provide 97% blockage, an SPF 50 (98% blockage) and an SPF 100 (99% blockage).  Typically, sunscreens should be applied to the face or body at least 10 minutes before sun exposure or at least 2 minutes before applying makeup.

Haxton continues, "It's important to be sure that one takes preventative measures in their skincare regimen and include sunscreen at the top of the list.  The mistake most people make is using the same sunscreen they used the year before - like milk, sunscreen has an expiration date so it's important to be sure you're using the product within it's usage time.  One should always take precautions with their skin to put their best face forward."
