Are you wearing sunscreen this minute? Well you better be! Just like most of you, before I started my research on “sunscreen”, I was part of the alarming amount of people who brave the UV rays without applying any protection. Now that I have learned so much more about sun protection, I am going to share with you the importance and why you should be wearing sunscreen every day!

Many of us have the habit of us applying sunscreen only when we’re heading to a beach or when doing outdoor activities. What most of us do not realize is that you need to protect your skin no matter which season, whether you are indoors or outdoors because the Sun is up there 365 days a year!

Sunscreens are products of different ingredients combined together to help prevent the Sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching and damaging the skin. Ultraviolet radiation that damages the skin includes UVA and UVB that are the main causes of skin damage, sunburns and skin aging! Sun Protection Factor (SPF) that is often seen on the bottles of sunscreen is a measurement of the sunscreen’s ability to prevent UVB to damage your skin. In other words, the higher the SPF, the longer and the higher the ability of the sunscreen to protect your skin!

I am pretty sure you have heard and read tons about this: Skin cancer rates are on the rise and it is true that the ozone layer is depleting and your body needs shielding from harmful rays! Not only can sunscreen protect your skin, it is also proven to decrease the development of skin cancer. If you are planning on spending a long time under the sun, try covering up with long sleeves, wear a hat and seek shade when the sun is at its strongest for that extra protection!

Sunscreen also helps to slow down the process of aging skin. Yes, you heard me right; it slows down the development of wrinkles and premature aging skin without invasive treatments. It also prevents facial brown spots and skin discolorations. Therefore, the humble sunscreen is hands down the most effective anti-ageing tool you can buy! No more contemplation between tubes of anti-aging cream versus a bottle of sunscreen because we have gladly solved the dilemma for you!

I hope this information helped and that you are reaching out to your bottle of sunscreen now! Just one last little tip, apply sunscreen 30 minutes heading out for it to be absorbed into the skin and less likely to wash off when you perspire!
