Top 3 Reasons To Wear Sunscreen

While we recommend using sunscreen year-round, this time of year it’s especially important to remind people to get in the habit of putting it on daily. As the weather warms up and we start to spend more time in the sun, you’ll want to be sure to wear sunscreen – even on cloudy days. This protects your skin from the negative effects of sun damage and helps to keep your skin healthy for the long term. Let’s go over our top three reasons to put that sunscreen on every day.

(1) Sun Damage Is The #1 Cause Of Premature Aging Skin

By the time clients come to us looking to reverse the signs of aging on their skin, the damage has been done – often years prior – with irresponsible sun exposure. If you’re of the age where you remember going to tanning beds as a teen, we’re talking to you. UV damage is stealthy. It starts deep in the skin and slowly makes its way to the surface. In other words, the hyperpigmentation you see now was the result of years and years of too much sun. Fortunately, we do have treatment options to reverse sun damage. But these treatments will be a waste of time and money if you don’t start wearing sunscreen regularly!

(2) You Don’t Want Skin Cancer

If vanity isn’t enough to convince you, how about your health? Sun damage is known to cause skin cancer, also called melanoma. In fact, this cancer is the most common type of cancer in the US. That’s because we have large swaths of the population over-exposing themselves to the sun (especially in their younger years) and then skipping the SPF long into their 30s and 40s. Skin cancer is treatable if caught early, and wearing sunscreen helps to prevent it.

(3) Wear Sunscreen To Prevent Painful Burns

Aside from the risks of skin cancer, sunburns are no fun! This painful condition leaves you flushed for days followed by peeling skin for up to a week. It makes makeup application difficult and can leave you with hypersensitive skin underneath.

If you’re unsure of what type of sunscreen to wear or have a hard time finding one that doesn’t leave a white cast, residue, or makes you breakout, you’re not alone. These are some of the reasons our clients site for not using sunscreen regularly. But, we can help! We have several options from professional skincare lines that will protect your skin while being easy to wear.
