UV Rays and Getting Away From Them


Yesterday my colleague mentioned that certain lights in our office emit more harmful UV rays than others and that we should only turn on certain lights to avoid further wrinkles. At first it sounded crazy, but then I realized that she is probably right. There are different types of light bulbs and every light emits harmful rays. If we use the better quality ones, perhaps we can avoid some aging effects.

After I got home, I decided to google the topic and I found this article on a wonderful website about wellness and writing: http://www.writingandwellness.com/2014/03/04/what-your-computer-could-be-doing-to-your-face/. It states that our computer too emits harmful rays and that sitting for long periods of time with our head pointed downward can encourage jowls or early signs of aging.

You may wonder why I am so concerned about wrinkles when I am only 40 years old and don't have any yet. I am concerned because I live in a very sunny climate and am exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun everyday. It is something I can't avoid so I am concerned that my "baby-face" will only last so much longer if I continue to live in Los Angeles (as I do).

This week, I got a new type of window shade that REALLY covers the window and I am looking forward to using it. It is called the Sun Shades and refer to themselves as a "sock": http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01523DWZ4?ref_=cm_rdp_product. It's a unique idea where you don't have to use suction cups or have the item stick to your window. They also have a 1-year warranty.

Some people may call me crazy, but I am just looking out for my skin. It's not just wrinkles, but also cancer and other damaging effects to the body that are created by UV rays. I hope you too choose your lightbulbs wisely, get up to stretch often when at the computer, and put on your sunscreen!
