How long does proper sun light therapy take?

It really depends on you. Specifically the treatment you use and your skin’s tolerance to the ultra violet light.

erythema, pimple, or swelling is the first sign. If you are experiencing the feeling just before you see a flare up, consult with your dermatologist.

Typically, topical treatments are the preferred method at the beginning of therapy. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C and E and zinc help to build the immune system together with Vitamin A (to coagulate wounds).

After healing is achieved, ongoing treatments will be in order to maintain a low key condition. Traditional and some topical agents can irritate the skin and provoke recurrence.

What is the difference between UVB and UVA light?

The difference between the two kinds of light is that UVA have a long wavelength that comfortably permeates the atmosphere whereas UVB predominantly has a short wavelength that is not easily absorbed by the atmosphere.

UVB light penetrates the atmosphere, enters water and reaches the living tissue below. UVB rays are the ones that are responsible for causing sunburn.

UVB is in the range of 100nm to 400nm. UVA light is in the range of roughly 280nm to 320nm.

Tanning is a profession that brings you closer to the sun’s rays. Should you be a professional or a regular sunlamp Tanner, always remember to protect yourself with a proper sunscreen.

The sun’s rays are harsher than you see it is actually shining. This is precisely why you need a sunscreen that says SPF or SPF. It is advisable to use sunscreen with a higher SPF if you are going to be exposed to the sun for a longer period of time.

Sometimes manufacturers distinguish between UVA and UVB rays with their own names. They also make UVA-obic (blocking) and UVB-obic (block even with the rays that reach the surface).

The sunscreen’s label says that the product protects you from UVA rays but what happens to your body when exposed to UVB rays? Does it completely block all of the UV rays that reach the surface of your skin?

This is exactly what the FDA is working towards. They recently defined a term called UMF which is the sun protection factor. This is a standard measure of sun protection, and is now used in many conjunction with SPF ratings. The higher the UMF number, the higher the SPF.

So which products can you find?

They are abundant. You can find UVB-obic sunscreens that offer varying degrees of protection from the harmful effects of UVB rays. You can also find lotions, sprays, gel and sprays that contain UVA-obic (blocking) compounds.

They are in many of the top products on the market for both Men and Women. Many brands offer a medicated formulation which means that the blocking agents are accompanied by soothing properties for that beautiful tan.
