Spring is here and summer is fast on its heels. This means blue skies, warm weather and lots of sunshine. While sunshine is a great source of vitamin D, too much sun is bad for your skin. Too much sun can cause a whole host of both health and aesthetic issues that can lead to permanent damage. Here are some reasons why you should always wear sunscreen: The Importance of Wearing Sunscreen
- Skin cancer rates are on the rise. Luckily, sunscreen has been proven to decrease the development of skin cancer
- Sunscreen helps prevent facial brown spots and other skin discolorations
- Sunscreen also helps reduce the appearance of facial red veins and blotchiness of skin
- It helps slow down the development of fine lines, wrinkles and premature aged skin
Remember that some medications increase the sensitivity of your skin to sunlight. Drugs such as anti-inflammatories, acne medication and medication for cardiovascular issues can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage than usual. Always wearing sunscreen ensures that, regardless of additional sensitivities, you and your skin are protected.
When it comes to choosing a sunscreen, consider your skin type. If you have a lighter complexion, try a sunscreen with higher SPF. We also recommend sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection, anti-redness properties and additional coverage against High Energy Visible light (HEV).
