6 Reasons To Wear SPF Everyday

Here are 6 reasons why that sunscreen tube deserves a prime spot in your daily routine, even when winter's doing its thing:


1. Helps Reduce Your Risk Of Skin Cancer 

A BIG ONE and reason enough!


Sunscreen is your first line of defence against harmful UV rays, which are a major contributor to skin cancer. By applying sunscreen regularly, you create a barrier that helps protect your skin from the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation. This simple step can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, making it an essential part of your skincare routine.


2. Assists In Preventing The Signs Of Ageing. 

Wrinkles might be a badge of wisdom, but it doesn’t mean we’re rushing to get one.


UV rays from the sun accelerate the ageing process by breaking down collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. These fibres are responsible for keeping your skin firm and youthful. By using sunscreen, you can help maintain the structural integrity of your skin, preventing premature wrinkles and sagging. While wrinkles might have their charm, taking care of your skin's health can help you age gracefully without unnecessary damage.


3. Assists In Preventing Uneven Skin Tone. 

Sunspots & pigmentation, unlike freckles, aren't so cute.


Prolonged sun exposure can lead to the development of uneven skin tone, including sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Sunscreen helps prevent the overproduction of melanin triggered by UV rays, which can result in dark spots and patches. By using sunscreen regularly, you're not only protecting your skin's health but also maintaining a more even and radiant complexion.


4. Reduces Your Risk Of Sunburn. 

Post-AHAs and retinol or before a day on the slopes, SPF keeps you glowing and saves you from a complexion à la lobster.


Sunburn isn't just painful and uncomfortable; it's also a sign of skin damage caused by excessive UV exposure. Sunscreen acts as a shield against these harmful rays, preventing your skin from burning. Whether you're using skincare products like AHAs and retinol or planning outdoor activities, applying sunscreen is crucial to avoid the discomfort and long-term consequences of sunburn.

 

5. Helps Decrease Inflammation. 

Exposure to UV rays can cause painful redness and inflammation. This can be especially challenging for those with skin issues like psoriasis or rosacea.


UV radiation can trigger an inflammatory response in the skin, leading to redness, irritation, and exacerbating existing skin conditions like psoriasis or rosacea. Using sunscreen helps mitigate these effects by providing a protective barrier that minimises inflammation. By shielding your skin from UV exposure, you can help manage these conditions more effectively.


6. Future You Will Thank You! 

The effects of sunscreen may not be noticeable at first, but it will pay off long-term, we promise you.


Consistent sunscreen use might not yield immediate visible results, but it's an investment in your skin's long-term health. The cumulative effects of UV damage can become apparent over time, leading to more serious skin issues. By prioritising sunscreen application now, you're making a proactive choice that will benefit you in the future, helping you maintain healthier and more vibrant skin as you age.
