Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen!

Although summer is not the only time in which one should use sunscreen, it is often the time of year we have the majority of our outdoor activities happening in full-sunny-swing. So sunscreen is especially important during our frequent visits beneath the warm glow of the sun.

Whether you burn easily, or usually tan to a golden brown, sunscreen helps to prevents both burning as well as skin cancer from ravaging our skin. That is why, regardless of your skin-type, it is important to apply sunscreen. Not only will it protect your skin, it will also offer you peace of mind during your outdoor play.

Despite the constant reminders that are out there, there is still an alarming amount of individuals who dismiss the need for sunscreen, and go out and play under the harmful effects of UV rays without applying sun block.

You should never leave home without your SPF 15 in hand, whether you apply it in the morning before your days activities, or lather up once your activities begin outside, being prepared and protected is priority #1.

Vanity alone might be motivation enough to get you wearing sunscreen. When the skin of those who wore sunscreen over a 20-year period was compared to a non-sunscreen wearer …those who didn’t regularly apply sunscreen consistently had the more damaged and aged skin.

Youth provides you with forgiving skin that regenerates itself quite easily, but the under layers of your skin that are being effected won’t show signs of wear and tear for up to 20+ years later, so prevent the aging process by using the correct SPF and applying sunscreen often enough for it to count.
