Sunscreen: What is SPF?

SPF is the protection factor in the sunscreen.

SPF ONLY relates to UVB rays- “burning rays”.

Does everyone need to wear sunscreen?

YES! YES! YES! Including the #MelaninBeauties

UVA/UVB RAYS- WHAT is the difference?

UVA rays cause aging, while UVB rays cause burning.

UVA rays penetrate to the dermis of the skin, while UVB rays penetrate the epidermis.”


Epidermis is the top layer of the skin, the part of the skin you see.

Dermis is the second layer of skin. It’s much thicker and does a lot for your body.
