This summer heat is no joke, especially when the first day of summer is officially tomorrow! We’ve all been told to wear sunscreen for skin protection but do you know the specific reasons why? Wearing effective sunscreen is the best-kept beauty secret… that’s not really a secret. Even on cloudy days, our skin is susceptible to the sun’s harmful rays which can lead to skin discoloration, skin cancer, and wrinkles over time. YIKES! The biggest switch you can make in your daily skincare routine to help protect your precious skin is to apply sunscreen daily, especially in the mornings. You can also help protect your skin from those harsh sun rays by wearing protective clothing and accessories. Who doesn’t love big floppy hats and paparazzi glasses?!
Prevent Your Risk of Skin Cancer
Sunscreen helps to protect your skin and reduces your risk of developing skin cancer and skin pre-cancers. Applying SPF daily and taking other sun protection habits can reduce the damaging effects of sun exposure. You always want to try and use a minimum of SPF 30 numerous times throughout the day. The higher the SPF, the better! At Live Young Wellness Spa, we offer a variety of skin care lines that provide SPF such as ZO® Skin Health and Alastin.
Prevent Skin Discoloration
Nobody likes skin discoloration, especially when they appear later in life. “Sunspots” also known as “liver spots” are usually tan to brown. They can affect both men and women and can develop on the face, head, hands, and arms. Applying sunscreen frequently throughout your day can help prevent these spots from popping up on your beautiful skin. At Live Young Wellness Spa, we offer treatments and affordable memberships that can help skin discoloration. Give us a call today to discuss the best treatment options for your skin!
Prevent the Signs of Aging
Frequent exposure to the sun with little to no protection can cause damage to your elastin, collagen, and skin cells, which can lead to early signs of aging over time. Early signs of aging include discoloration, wrinkles, and fine lines. Those who spend time in the sun without protection, especially for long periods can develop premature aging faster. Don’t worry, these skin issues can be preventable with daily sunscreen use! We also offer a variety of treatment options and affordable memberships here at Live Young Wellness Spa that can help treat those fine lines and wrinkles!
Reduce the Risk of Sunburn
Pretty obvious that if you wear sunscreen-especially with high SPF, it can help prevent you from getting baked in the sun. No one enjoys being burnt by the sun, it can get pretty painful and irritating. You can get sunburned from spending long periods in the sun (with no protection) and also from tanning beds. Sunscreen helps by defending the skin against UV rays by absorbing, reflecting, or scattering sunlight.
Reduce Inflammation and Redness
The UV rays can cause painful redness and inflammation when our skin is exposed. If you are prone to redness and have sensitive skin, look for a sunscreen that has high SPF and ingredients such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. You should also avoid spray-on sunscreens as they contain harsh formulas that can dry out the skin.
