5 important reasons to wear sunscreen daily



Before you shoot us down, at least hear us out. We know buying sunscreen is as painful as pulling your nose hair but some things have to be done.

It goes without saying that the weather is hot and the sun always has a grudge to settle with the skin.

It’s alarming how blind we are to the effects of sunburn especially on dark skin. And that’s why you should have sunscreen in your purse, be you male or female.

With that being said, here are 5 important reasons to always wear sunscreen.

1. It protects your skin from UV rays

With the ozone barrier’s continuous depletion, our risk of sun damage from dangerous UV rays has exponentially increased. your best chance to protect yourself from sun damage is to get yourself sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor(SPF) of at least 15 which blocks these photons, reducing the risk of sunburn significantly.

2. It reduces the risk of skin cancer

Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. Often, its first sign is a change in the size, shape, color, or feel of a mole. Sunscreen can help avoid or significantly reduce how prone we are to getting skin cancer.

3. It prevents early skin aging

UV rays promote photoaging, which is characterized by a thick, leathery appearance, discoloration, and collagen breakdown, all of which lead to lines, sagging, and wrinkles. According to studies, people under the age of 55 who use sunscreen on a regular basis have a 24 percent lower risk of getting these indications of aging than those who don’t.

4. It aids in the maintenance of an even skin tone

Sunscreen aids in the prevention of discoloration and dark spots caused by sun damage, allowing you to keep a smoother and more even skin tone.

5. Avoid broken blood vessels

This is also known as telangiectasia. UV rays can damage the skin’s blood vessel walls, causing them to shrink. The appearance of bruises or bleeding is caused by the narrowing of blood vessels.
