The sun can cause harm to your skin, even when you least expect it. The sun's powerful rays can cause sunburns, sun blisters, sun spots, and wrinkles. Sun exposure can make your skin look aged far beyond your years. As you age, these issues like sunspots and wrinkled skin may arise naturally. However, there are ways to prevent your skin from aging and help keep your skin healthy, supple, and looking young by wearing sunscreen every single day.
Here are 5 reasons to wear sunscreen every day:
- It prevents wrinkles
Wearing sunscreen every day can help prevent your skin from premature aging. Sun damage breaks down the collagen and elasticity in the skin, causing fine lines to appear and deeper wrinkles to surface. Sunscreen is an easy solution to keeping your skin looking and feeling younger and for preventing wrinkles from forming.
- It will keep your skin supple and moisturized
Sunscreen doesn't always have to be thick, white, and greasy. There are many moisturizers out there that come with SPF in them already. Not only is your skin receiving moisture and staying hydrated, but it's also being protected from the sun's powerful UV rays.
- It can reduce the risk of getting skin cancer
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, nearly 9,500 people have been diagnosed with some form of skin cancer every day in the U.S. These types of skin cancer include melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. Wearing sunscreen daily can help protect you from these types of cancer.
- It can help maintain even skin tone
Long term sun damage can often cause dark sunspots and discoloration on the skin. Not only are these dark spots unattractive, but they can also be signs of skin cancer and other skin diseases. Wearing sunscreen can help prevent sun spots and help you maintain an even skin tone, keeping your skin healthy and looking younger.
- The sun is strong even when it's cloudy
Even on cold and cloudy days, the sun's powerful UV rays can cause damage to your skin. It's important to get into a routine of wearing sunscreen every day, whether you're applying it as is or if it's built into your daily moisturizer. Wearing sunscreen every day, even on days you think are safe, can help prevent wrinkles and premature aging, and keep your skin moisturized and healthy, can reduce your risk of getting cancer, and can keep your skin tone even.
