“Your cell phone will damage your skin”.
“Even the blue light we get from our computer screens can damage our skin”. dr. Zein Obagi Dermatologist.
….this true…
Even the blue light we get from our computer screens can damage our skin. SUN SKIN UV-DERM SPF 50 contains the HEV Melanin Blocker (High Energy Visible light) to shield the skin from this high energy blue / violet visible light with wavelengths from 400nm to 500nm.

 DRY LIPS? CRACKED LIPS? COLD SORES?
Cold sores / fever blisters are caused by the herpes simplex 1 virus. Different health and environmental conditions can cause cold sores to recur; one of them is overexposure to sunlight.

The Skin on the lips is much thinner & more delicate than the rest of the face. Therefore much more vulnerable to damage by UVA/UVB rays.
Use SUN SKIN lip therapy SPF 30 (UVA / UVB protection).

Sunlight as a Cold Sore Trigger
The obvious triggers are a cold, injury, or stress, but medical professionals also believe that ultraviolet (UV) radiation—that is, exposure to the sun—can cause cold sores to flare up.
About UV-Rays
Too much sun can cause sunburn and lead to premature aging and skin cancers. What is less known, says the World Health Organization, is that overexposure to UV-Rays can impair your immune system and slow down its infection-fighting responses, which is why too much sun can trigger a cold sore.

Treatment?
There is evidence that applying sun protection to your lips may prevent cold sores from appearing.
Apply SUN SKIN SPF 30 LIP TREATMENT to avoid getting burnt. To stay at your infection-fighting best, also try to eat healthily and get a decent night’s sleep.

MYTH : DARK SKIN DOESN’T BURN, SO YOU DON’T NEED SUNSCREEN
Reality: “All complexions can burn,” says dr. Grossman, dermatologist in USA. A dark-skinned African doesn’t need as high an SPF sunscreen as someone with red hair, since they have more melanin in their skin for natural protection. Still, that extra melanin doesn’t guard against the UV damage that accelerates aging or causes cancer. If you have dark skin, you need a broad-spectrum (UVA + UVB) sunscreen. Ideally SPF 30.
