Everyone knows that exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation increases the risk of developing skin cancer, but most will never properly protect themselves when outdoors being active under the sun. UV rays are the main cause of sun-damaged skin. By harming the skin’s cellular DNA, excessive UV radiation encourages genetic mutations that can lead to skin cancer.
Unfortunately, it’s not only sunbathers who are at risk of developing skin cancer. We may be exposed to high levels of UV every second that we are outdoors, no matter the activity. Even light sun exposure adds up over time and increases the chance of health concerns in the future.
Although the sun’s heat is the most strong in Summer, it’s not the only season to worry about for strong UV presence – even in cloudy, cold conditions, harmful rays are still present. Proper protection is essential throughout all seasons.
But how do we shield ourselves from this ever-present radiation?
During outdoor activity, sunscreen alone isn’t able to block all UV rays. Sunscreen is only effective for around two hours, after which it needs to be generously reapplied. This can be inconvenient when in the middle of an activity, competition, or task: you may be unable to reapply sunscreen on your skin in time or simply forget to do it again at all. Facial skin is also too delicate and sensitive for large amounts of sunscreen and many people do not enjoy the thick, sticky feeling of wearing it on their skin.
For complete UV protection without the bother of sunscreen every two hours, NAROO sports masks are ideal for defending your most delicate skin and eliminating health risks in the future. Our masks simultaneously provide complete coverage and allow for easy breathing and comfort in any environment, so that you can forget the fear and focus on the fun.
