5 Reasons to Wear Sunscreen Daily

Skin Care

We all know we should wear sunscreen when spending a lot of time outdoors, but most of us don’t slather it on daily. Here are five good reasons to make sunscreen part of your daily routine.

Cancer Prevention

Although it seems obvious: everyone should wear sunscreen every day!  No matter your skin type, age, gender, or ethnicity, it is essential to protect your skin from the damage of ultraviolet rays. UVA and UVB rays can even penetrate thick cloud cover or glass and cause damage. 

Anti-Aging Benefits

With the golden glow of a tan, either acquired naturally or in a tanning bed, comes damage that prematurely ages your skin. Wrinkles, sagging, and age spots are the most common signs of sun damage. A 2013 study in Australia found that subjects who applied sunscreen every day had noticeably smoother and more resilient skin.

Smooth Canvas

A base coat of sunscreen can work as a smoothing primer before makeup application, and also keep your skin visibly healthier in the present moment.  It can also work with your makeup to help create a flawless look.  A fan favorite at SPMA is Neova’s Silc Sheer. Smart sunscreen with DNA repair enzymes and antioxidants that protects against aging and burning while visibly correcting damage with a perfecting natural tint.

Day-to-Day Skin Health

While it is essential to prevent damage for the sake of your future skin, the health of your skin at the present moment is also of utmost importance. Sunburns cause redness, itchiness, pain, irritability, and peeling, all of which can interfere with your ability to pull off a flawless look.

More Value from Treatments

Skin health routines that involve facials, exfoliation, lasers, or other treatments are lovely and beneficial ways to maintain the health of your skin. Still, these treatments are fighting an uphill battle if you continue to damage your skin by sun exposure. To get more bang for your buck and return on your skincare treatments, protect your skin! 

Many skincare treatments cause sensitivity to the sun after, meaning you could undo all of the beautiful work you’ve just done for your skin by exposing it to ultraviolet rays.
