How important is it to still wear an SPF?
There goes the sun! But does that mean your SPFs are discarded till the sunshine reappears next year? Or you get chance of that winter vacation in the sunshine?
If you’re not wearing an spf everyday on your face, even when cloudy or you’re indoors then it’s time to start!
Wearing sunscreen is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your skin from harsh effects UVA and UVB rays.
But how does it go beyond benefitting your skin other than protecting from the sun and why it should not be reserved only for the summer months.
– [ ] Helps prevent premature aging
We all want to look younger right? Sun exposure is damaging and can cause visible wrinkles and fine lines and over exposure can even change skin texture. Try and keep your face and neck out of the direct sun.
Even those winter days those pesky rays can still come through clouds, rain, glass or snow so wearing an spf is an important preventative to be worn daily all year round.
– [ ] Reduces the appearance of sun spots
Sun damage causes hyperpigmentation which can look like large freckles. Wearing an spf is clinically proven to reduce photoaging by 24% so therefore I recommend wearing a high protection 50 spf. Apply regularly throughout the day. This will promote even skin tone.
– [ ] Prevents skin cancer
SPF’s play an important role in blocking UVB rays. Therefore It’s clear the best way to protect ourselves is wearing sunscreen, it reduces the risk of Melanoma by 50%. So slather it on. Prevention is better than cure! !
So Avoid peak sun
Seek shade, wear that hat! Cover up and wear your favourite SPF!!
