Summer is just around the corner which means warm, sunny days are ahead and plenty of exposure to UV rays! While it is important to wear SPF year-round to prevent against harmful UV rays, we typically get even more exposure in the summertime. For this reason, we felt it was important to remind you why wearing SPF on a daily is not only a recommendation but non-negotiable. In this blog post, we’re going to break down the benefits of wearing products with SPF and how to go about choosing the right product for your lifestyle!
REDUCE AND PREVENT THE RISK OF SUNBURN
Sunburns are awful, and we’ve all been there- whether you baked a little too long in the sun on the beach or were surprised with a burn following a cloudy day outside. Not only are they incredibly uncomfortable, repeated sunburns can lead to damage that not only causes premature aging but more seriously, skin cancer. The biggest thing to take away is that sunburn can happen in any season, weather, inside or outside, so it is imperative to be wearing a product containing SPF year-round, every single day.
PREVENT BLOTCHINESS AND HYPERPIGMENTATION
Sun exposure can cause damage to the skin that leads to uneven skin tone, blotchiness, and hyperpigmentation. While these types of issues can also be hereditary, the process can be slowed down or even prevented by simply applying sunscreen or products with SPF every day. It’s not only important to remember to protect the skin on your face, hyperpigmentation shows up all over the body but especially on your hands, so make sure to take protective measures from head to toe.
PREVENT PREMATURE SIGNS OF AGING
Prolonged exposure to UV rays affects the collagen and elasticity in the skin which can cause fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, and loose skin that make you appear older. Instead of setting the future up for investing in anti-aging products to fix these problems, start early and focus on prevention by regularly applying SPF!
REDUCE THE RISK OF SKIN CANCER
Applying SPF on a daily basis essentially creates a shield around your skin that protects against external and internal damage caused by UV rays. Using sunscreen with other protective measures such as wearing hats and dark clothing is shown to be highly effective in preventing sun damage that can cause skin cancer. The Skin Care Foundation claims that using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 reduces the chance of developing Melanoma by 50%.
