Many people think that the action of UV rays is only dangerous during the summer, but it is not; in all seasons the sun can be dangerous. In winter you have to protect yourself from this radiation, something we know very well from Toldos Guardamar since we manufacture awnings with UV protection with great effectiveness.
Stains, wrinkles and different signs of aging can be accelerated by the exposure of the skin to the radiations of the sun, especially in winter. For this reason, specialists in dermatology recommend applying a restorative cream during the night and a protective cream during the morning.
Ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) is predominant during the summer and one of those responsible for sunburn as well as skin cancer. In winter, UVB rays are reduced to the detriment of ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation, which is the cause of skin aging.
In this case, all the elastic fibers in the skin that are exposed to the sun become insoluble, its collagen is reduced, which contributes to the appearance of wrinkles and causes the skin to suffer an accelerated aging.
It is important to bear in mind that UVA accounts for around 95% of the radiation that reaches Earth and has a high degree of penetration into the skin. This causes photoaging to occur, which causes cellular DNA damage and contributes to the development of cancer in the skin.
For these reasons, it is necessary to go very well protected against the sun, especially in winter, even more than in summer. You have to take care of the skin because we only have one, so we must be very careful with this aspect of health.
