Many surfaces can reflect the UV rays of the sun, which can cause sunburn. These surfaces include sand, concrete and snow, so, it’s important to wear sunglasses and sunscreen even if you are in the water or out skiing.
Zinc oxide can protect against sunburn and skin damage caused by UV rays, and is not absorbed into the skin. It is the broadest UVA and UVB reflector approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It can be used as extra protection for sensitive areas, such as cheeks, nose, ears and shoulders.
