UV Index

What is the UV index? The UV index measures the level of ultraviolet radiation from the sun. It ranges from 0 to 11+ and provides information about the amount of UV radiation that can cause skin damage. The higher the index, the more intense the UV radiation, and the greater the risk of sunburn, skin aging, and skin cancer. As a quick refresher, UV radiation is divided into two categories: UVA and UVB. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin, causing wrinkles and other signs of aging. On the other hand, UVB rays are responsible for sunburn and skin cancer. To properly guard your skin against the harmful effects of UV radiation, it is essential to use sunscreen with a high SPF rating. Additionally, it's important to take extra precautions, such as seeking shade, wearing protective clothing, or avoiding outdoor activities when the UV index is high to prevent skin damage.
