What is one skincare product you should be reaching for every morning? Your sunscreen! Although most may think that you should only wear sunscreen when you’re outside and directly in the sun, ultraviolet rays are always present so you should be using it at an all-round defence no matter what time of year it is. Ultraviolet rays can catch you out too – cloudy days? Sitting by the window? In the car? In all of these places you’ll be catching those UV rays so it’s a good habit to wear sunscreen every day.
Why is sunscreen so important?
Sunscreen protects your skin from its external environment. While we all know that sunscreen will protect you from a sun burn, sun exposure in general can have many other effects – one of which is ageing!
Our top 3 benefits of using sunscreen everyday:
1. Reduces signs of ageing
Being exposed to UV rays can damage the collagen in your skin, effectively ageing your skin, creating wrinkles and fine lines. By applying sunscreen every day, you are reducing the risk of developing signs of ageing. Making your skin look fresh and healthy for longer!
2. Protect from sunburn
The main benefit that everyone knows about is how sunscreen protects your skin from sunburn. To prevent your skin from being damaged by sunburn, wear your sunscreen!
3. Reduces Inflammation
Wearing your sunscreen everyday can help reduce inflammation caused by UV rays which is extremely beneficial for those who have sensitive skin or experience existing skin concerns such as rosacea.
