Our skin is the largest organ of the body that goes through so much during the day. It also offers protection from harmful UV rays. But it can only do so much because, after a while, it starts showing the signs of sun damage; fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots/patches, etc. Without its daily dose of SPF, the skin is vulnerable to host a whole lot of other problems (Because the only *Sunburn* we love is the music festival and not the actual skin problem!).
So without further ado, let's know more about why you need to add 'Apply sunscreen daily' to your everyday skincare playlist!
1) Reduces The Signs Of Ageing
If you want your skin to hide your real age, then trust us, applying sunscreen daily is your skincare secret. It not only protects the skin from harmful rays but also protects the skin from premature signs of aging and keep the (not so) fine lines at bay. Stepping out when the sun is shining in all its glory can damage collagen and can result in saggy/wrinkly skin.
2) Limits The Facial Spots/Patches
One of the most prominent signs of sun damage is the appearance of brown spots or patches on your skin aka sunspots. Thankfully, they do not start appearing till you've crossed 35 years of age but the sun is hard at work and it is already causing photodamage as I type this.
*Grabs my sunscreen immediately*
Sunspots are a result of hyperpigmentation that appear on multiple parts of the skin; face, shoulders, arms, back, back of the hands, etc. You can also mix 2-3 drops of a vitamin C serum to boosts its efficacy.
3) Protection From Sunburn
Too much sun exposure, without any sunscreen, can result in painful burns/ boils in the skin. Sunburns typically happen when we spend too much time in the sun or are under repeated sun exposure like doing street shopping for hours!
And yes, tanning beds are no exception.
A little known fact about sunburn is that it can also increase the risk of skin cancer. So make sure you apply a generous amount of sunscreen when you're stepping out!
4) Reduces Chances Of Skin Cancer
The best way to minimize the risk of getting skin cancer is by applying sunscreen daily.
We highly recommend using a broad spectrum with at least SPF 30 and reapply it every two hours.
5) Reduces Chances Of Skin Sensitivity
Constant skin exposure can also lead to skin inflammation, free radical damage and an increase in skin sensitivity as UV radiation can damage the DNA of immune-protecting cells.
Thus leading to other sorts of ailments and allergies.
