Sun protection is important year round.

UVA and UVB are the two main types of UV radiation. While UVB rays will lessen in intensity after September, UVA rays are strong all year long and all day long. These rays penetrate skin the deepest and are responsible for the majority of premature aging. Do not be fooled into thinking that cold weather or clouds will not decrease the dangers of UV radiation. Clouds stop only five to forty percent of UV radiation and UV radiation is not affected by temperature. Both UVB and UVA can cause skin cancer so this is not the time to “fall back” on sun protection.

Sun protection is important all year round. SunGrubbies.com has sun protective clothing and accessories that are great fall picks this season. Cooler temperatures allow for layering and heavier fabrics. Long sleeve tees paired with full zip jackets and stylish pants are fashionable outfits that will help in providing maximum protection. And, sun protective hoodies are perfect for cool fall evenings.

Wool hats with wide brims will keep heads warm as well as shading the face, neck and ears. These areas are prime spots for skin cancer.

Natural sunscreens will protect against both UVA and UVB radiation. They nourish and moisturize skin with vitamins and antioxidants.

Protect eyes with over-sized lens sunglasses. They will protect eyes against dangerous sun rays that can cause cataracts. Choose a pair that are wrap-around or that have a wide ear piece. This helps block UV rays from above and from the sides. Be mindful of reflective surfaces such as concrete, water, snow, sand and ice; they can increase UV exposure.
