Everyone should always wear sunscreen. Period — end of story. And not just on blistering hot summer days when you’re relaxing on the beach and trying to avoid a really bad sunburn. Sunscreen is just as important to apply year-round, and while that may sound like overkill, it’s the right thing to do to keep your skin looking younger, smoother, and healthier.
And yet, many people don’t wear sunscreen.
Is it because they forget? Is it too much of a messy hassle to apply?
Have they used bad products and swore them off, either because they didn’t work or weren’t as water-resistant as the label said? Do they insist their skin doesn’t burn, and they really need the tan?
Your friends at Live Young Wellness Spa urge you not to underestimate the benefits sunscreen has as a preventative healthcare habit. Even if your skin isn’t in any kind of danger of getting cooked, wearing sunscreen is a great habit to get into. And there are plenty of products — right here in our office — that really work.
But first, here are the top 4 reasons why you should always wear sunscreen.
Sunscreen protects your skin from UV rays
Sunlight is the main source of UV radiation, and the amount of UV exposure you get depends on the strength of the rays, the length of time your skin is exposed, and whether the skin is protected with clothing or sunscreen. A quality sunscreen product will have a Sun Protection Factor of at least 15, but most doctors recommend that you always wear sunscreen that is at least SPF 30.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Naturally, we all want to limit our risk as much as possible, and wearing sunscreen is a preventative measure for that.
Reduce premature skin aging
Sun damage affects the skin in a myriad of ways, from roughness and sensitivity to discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and an overall dull or dry look. And if you get too much sun and don’t wear sunscreen, many of these signs of skin aging will be irreparable.
Wear sunscreen, and you’ll maintain an even skin tone
Why should you always wear sunscreen? Besides the three reasons above, discoloration and dark spots can also become a serious problem over time.
