Applying sunscreen is the absolute best skincare advice I can give to anyone. Dermatologists around the world agree that using sunscreen every single day, whether you are in direct sunlight or not. It is the key to healthy skin.
You must know that unprotected sun exposure is the number one cause of premature skin ageing and skin cancer.
The two main types of UV rays that cause sun damage are UVA (longer wave) and UVB (shorter wave). UVA rays activate skin in an unhealthy way to become tan but are not responsible for sunburn. UVA rays go far deeper into skin and trigger skin-cancer and premature ageing damage. UVB (shorter wave) rays are responsible for causing sunburn and also trigger premature ageing skin damage. UVB is thought to be the common cause of most skin cancers.
Sun damages vital components in the skin such as collagen, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, ceramides, vitamins and hyaluronic acid. All of which skin needs to look young and healthy. However, the most important threat of not wearing a sunscreen is skin cancer. Hence this is the reason why sunscreen is the most important part of your skincare regimen.
Keep in mind that if you’re going to be outside for long periods of time or sweating a lot, you will need to reapply your protectors regularly to ensure you are getting full protection. Also, be aware that some medications can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
