3 Reasons Why You Should Wear Sunscreen Daily
Something is refreshing about letting the sunshine beat down on your skin. It may even be your favorite part about stepping outside. But, have you ever considered the detrimental effects it has on the appearance of your skin and overall skin health?
According to the skin cancer foundation, more than 9,500 people are diagnosed with skin cancer every day in the United States. In addition, more than two people die of the disease every hour. It’s startling that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined. With that being said, you must take preventative steps to avoid the development of skin cancer.
Here are 3 reasons why you should wear sunscreen daily:
Combat Signs of Aging
No matter how old you are, the fear of developing fine lines and wrinkles can be real. Getting older is unavoidable, so it’s better that you think about how you can take the best care of yourself now. Whenever you spend time under the sun, make sure that you apply a dependable sunscreen to protect your skin’s collagen and connective tissues. It’s also essential to choose a sunscreen that is labeled ‘broad-spectrum’ because they block out both UVA and UVB rays. Be sure to apply sunscreen to your face, neck, arms, and hands each morning!
Reduce Appearance of Sunspots
Being exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays can also cause sunspots, also known as age spots or liver spots. UV radiation causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin but also damages pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. This results in the overproduction of melanin, ultimately causing hyperpigmentation of the skin. Sunspots are typically flat areas of discolored skin that can be different shades of brown, usually appearing on your face, shoulders, arms, back, and hands. Daily use of sunscreen will help to prevent sun spots from forming. And, if you have sunspots already, sunscreen is an absolute must to keep them under control.
Protect Skin from Sunburn
Protecting skin from those pesky sunburns is probably the most common reason people apply sunscreen. When you are on your way to the beach, you typically have a bottle of sunscreen ready for application. Getting in the habit of putting sunscreen in your purse or pocket will help you easily access it to protect your skin from sunburns when you are on the go. Studies show that using a sunscreen with an SPF number 30 or greater effectively prevents sunburns. Sunburns can also increase the risk of skin cancer, so this is one of the preventative steps you can take to reduce the chances of development!
