According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, while most people recognize the need to take sun safety precautions during the summer months, many people don’t realize they need to protect their skin year round.  While ultraviolet (UVB) rays, the main cause of sunburn, are strongest in the summer, ultraviolet A (UVA) rays remain constant throughout the year.  UV Guard will shield you from these Harmful rays year round.
