As the temperature continues to climb and we all eagerly anticipate the arrival of summer and look forward to lounging by the pool or spending the day at the lake, it’s important to remember that prolonged exposure to the sun can cause damage, even severe damage, to your skin.
The sun emits harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays that damage skin cells and can cause premature aging, wrinkles, and dark spots, and can even increase your risk of skin cancer. You can shield against this damage with sunscreen’s protective layer, reducing the risk of its associated problems. This is why wearing sunscreen should not be optional but instead a part of your daily skincare routine, even when not outdoors.
Sunscreen works well with other skincare. Apply before/after moisturizer in the morning routine. Look for easy-absorb, lightweight formulas without a heavy or greasy feel. Many makeup products now come with SPF, so you can protect without compromise.
Everyone, regardless of age or skin type, must wear sunscreens as UV rays can harm all skin types. When choosing a sunscreen, ensure it’s suitable for your skin or consult one of our experts for recommendations.
To sum up, using sunscreen means reducing the risk of all kinds of skin damage. Use it daily, reapply often, and pair it with other skincare products for the best results. Stay protected and keep your skin looking great!
