Skin is the biggest organ in our body and it needs protection from external factors that can harm it, especially the Ultraviolet Rays. You may have read in some of our blogs that we have mentioned sunscreen and that we were encouraging you to use it.
But let me ask you first what comes into your mind when sunscreen is being mentioned?
Summer, beach, to avoid sunburn at the beach? Most of us thought that we only need to use sunscreen during summertime however did you know that we should use it every day?
Why? Let me give you some reasons why you need sunscreen every day.
1. HELPS TO PREVENT PREMATURE AGING OF THE SKIN
The damage that the UV rays are causing in our skin can result in photoaging. Going out in the sun without wearing sunscreen can damage the collagen and connective tissues of your skin which means that you will gain wrinkles and lose the elasticity of your skin.
2. FOR EVEN COMPLEXION
Sun damage is one of the causes of uneven skin tone, using daily sunscreen helps you to prevent those effects.
3. REDUCE THE RISK OF SKIN CANCER
It is one of the effective ways to reduce the risk of having skin cancer. We all know that harmful UV rays may cause skin cancer. So make sure that when you're going out even if it's not sunny-always wear sunscreen. Experts say that 80% of UV rays can still pass through clouds that's why they are encouraging everyone to wear sunscreen even if it's not summer.
4. LIMIT THE APPEARANCE OF SUNSPOT
Being exposed to UV rays can cause sunspots which are also known as age spots that can cause skin aging. Sunspots can appear on your face, shoulder, back, and back of your hands. To those who are using Dark Spot Correctors and Retinols, it is a must that you apply sunscreen to make the products more effective.
5. FOR AN OVERALL HEALTHY SKIN
Essential protein in the skin like keratin is being protected when you're applying sunscreen. These proteins are the reason for keeping your skin smooth and healthy both in appearance and function.
So. make sure to buy your own sunscreen and apply it during day time even though it's not summertime and experts recommend to use SPF 30 and above sunscreen.
