Sun Alert!

Ozone layer depletion means more sunscreen.


Wondering what that means?
Let’s make this simple. As most of us already know, the ozone layer blocks the sun’s harmful UVC rays from reaching the Earth’s surface. Unfortunately, this protective layer is thinning rapidly. Blame it on higher amounts of ozone depleting substances such as chlorofluorocarbons, methane, etc. in the atmosphere. This means more UV rays come in contact with your skin, causing more harm.

What looks like a harmless sun tan is actually indicative of deep skin damage. These harmful rays penetrate your skin’s deepest layers and attack the skin cells, resulting in long term damage in the form of SUN SPOTS, PIGMENTATION AND AGE LINES. Which is why it’s all the more important for you to never step out without applying sunscreen.

UVA rays
They are so strong that they can penetrate through the top layer, and go deep inside your skin and cause deep skin damage like premature ageing, sun spots, hyper pigmentation and skin cancer.

UVB rays
UVB rays penetrate the skin’s outer layer and trigger off melanocytes. These produce a pigment called melanin, which rises to the skin’s surface resulting in a lasting tan that appears within a few hours, along with dreadful sunburn. Thinning of the ozone layer will lead to higher levels of UVB radiation reaching the Earth’s surface. The sun’s emission of UVB rays does not change; but due to lower ozone protection, more UVB rays reach the Earth. This increases the risk of skin cancer.

UVC rays
UVC rays are the most dangerous ones, but fortunately, these rays are blocked by the ozone layer and don’t reach the Earth.
