Ever wonder how those beautiful, warm rays of the sun can have such long lasting and damaging effects on your skin?

Spectrum by Ryan Brookes

Like a straightened rainbow, you can picture the spectrum of sunlight with the red, orange and yellow wavelengths being the longest and making up infrared light.  As wavelengths shorten, green and blue light speeds up into indigo blue and violet colors, which are visible and contain Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B rays.  These are the rays that cause sun damage to our skin. read more —>

    Hi Candy,
    I’m so glad to read your post ~ being an ex-sun lover, it wasn’t until the last five years that I realized how much damage I had done to my skin, and since then, have done whatever I can to keep from getting too much of the rays when outdoors (including just driving around in the car!). I do miss the days of hanging out by the pool during the summer…its just not worth the risk anymore though. Thanks for sharing! 😉 Christine

    Great tips, Candy! I’ve also heard the recommended 10-15 minutes of Vitamin D from mother nature as well. I slather SPF on my kids like crazy. I LOVE California Babies on my kids or the organic stuff at Wholefoods.
