They cause tanning and are mainly responsible for sunburn. SPF or Sun Protection Factor is the degree of protection a sunscreen offers against UVB rays. UVA rays mainly cause aging or sun allergies. They penetrate deeper into the skin than UVB rays and can reach into the dermis. UVA rays directly contribute to skin aging (wrinkles, sagging, dark spots) and are the No. 1 cause of sun intolerances (allergies). Both UVA and UVB rays have been proven to cause damage to skin cells, including DNA, and to weaken the immune system. These damages potentially lead to the development of skin cancer.
