Direct sun exposure without any protection is very harmful to skin, as ultraviolet A rays are high-energy rays that can penetrate even tinted glass. Use a maximum UVA protection sunscreen on a daily basis with advice from a board-certified dermatologist in this free video on skin care.
Hello, my name is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, Board Certified Dermatologist, and author of "Six Weeks to Sensational Skin." This clip, is about facts about sun exposure, and honestly, the most important and impressive fact about sun exposure, within the last couple of decades, is that now every consumer needs to be sure that they use a sunscreen, that protects them from ultraviolet A rays. These very damaging, high energy rays, are able to come right through window glass, so that even if your car has some ultraviolet tinting, unless your windows are opaque, as you're sitting in your car, you are actually sunbathing, getting the very dangerous kind of ultraviolet A rays, that can cause skin cancer, and certainly a lot of skin aging. Be sure that the sunscreen product that you use, has actually been tested, and proven to have maximum UVA protection. This particular one, My Complexion Protection, has been shown to give you maximum, maximum protection against ultraviolet A. This is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo.
