Benefits Of Wearing Sunscreen


1. Reduce Your Risk Of Skin Cancer 

Sunscreen protects your skin and lowers your chances of skin cancer and precancerous lesions. The damaging effects of sun exposure are reduced when SPF is used in combination with other sun-protective practices such as wearing dark clothes and sunglasses.

3. Avoid Inflammation & Redness

Sunburn, severe skin reddening, and skin inflammation are all symptoms of spending too much time in the sun. 

2. Protect Against Sunburn

Did you know that there are two types of damaging radiation in sunlight: UVA and UVB? UVA radiation is related to long-term skin damage, such as wrinkle development, as well as some skin malignancies. Sunburn is caused by UVB rays, which are also considered to be the cause of most skin malignancies.

4. Prevent The Early Onset Of Wrinkles & Fine Lines 

Sunscreen is one of the most powerful preventative formulations when it comes to wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet. Long-term exposure to UVA radiation causes your skin to age prematurely, resulting in the loss of collagen and suppleness. In fact, solar damage is responsible for up to 90% of the apparent indications of aging.

5. Avoid Blotchy Skin & Hyperpigmentation 

Uneven skin pigmentation occurs when areas of the skin discolor or darken in an uneven manner. This can be inherited, but it can also be brought on by excessive sun exposure. 

6. Stop DNA Damage

Sunlight causes DNA damage, which can lead to skin cancer and photoaging, according to scientific research. 


Surprising Circumstances When SPF Is Used     

1. Indoors

Even if you spend the whole day indoors, UVA light may penetrate window glass and reach you. If you spend the day in a room with windows that let in plenty of light, you will be exposed to the same quantity of UVA rays as if you were outside.

2. During Winter

The ozone layer is layer of the atmosphere that absorbs sunlight. 
The ozone layer thins during the winter months, allowing you to be more vulnerable to the sun’s rays. It is best to apply SPF to your entire body before getting dressed, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. They recommend applying sunscreen to those hard-to-remember places like your ears, neck, and scalp at the very least.

3. At High Altitudes 

Because snow reflects up to 80% of the sun’s harmful rays, apply sunscreen to the exposed portions of your face the next time you’re on the slopes to protect yourself from the increased UV exposure caused by the reflection.

4. On Cloudy Days

You can still be affected by the Uv rays as the sun’s UV radiation still reaches Earth, even if it is cloudy! ☁️ ☁️

5. Through Light Clothing

Your skin will be exposed to sunlight more frequently if the garment is lighter in color.
