The importance of sunscreen cannot be overstated! The reason why sunscreen is important is that the number one cause of aging and damage to the skin is sun exposure! Sun protection is the most important skin care product you can use every single day and at several times throughout your day. Sun exposure leads to wrinkles and uneven pigmentation by damaging the dermis of the skin and is also blamed for skin and lip cancers.
The first and most important defense against wrinkles is the daily use of sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher. It can be in your foundation or moisturizer and it will help to prevent new wrinkles from developing and existing ones from getting deeper. In general people do not understand the Importance of Sunscreen all year round, not just on bright or sunny days. Sun protection is not just for the summer months! To prevent aging caused by UV rays, sunscreen should be used every day of the year-even if it is a cloudy day or you’re not even planning on being outside. Sunscreens and Sunblocks, although the names are frequently used, there is a difference. They use different chemicals and those chemicals work in different ways, which is why different terms are used.
Most People Don’t Apply Enough Sunscreen – A dermatology study found that sunscreen users were only applying 50 percent of the recommended amount, so they were only receiving 50 percent of the SPF protection. Sunscreen should be the last product applied to the skin. Layering other skin care products over your sunscreen will dilute its effectiveness. If you use foundation without SPF over your SPF make sure you don’t rub it in too much, or it will also decrease the sun protection. If your foundation is your SPF it should be applied liberally. The importance of sunscreen is year round, every day.
