Long awaited summer has arrived also to Irish shores and we all love spending time outdoors soaking up as much sunshine as possible. While sunny days definitely lift up our mood and serve as a natural dose of Vitamin D, it is vital to remember to protect our skin from sun damage and use sun care products daily. Even in the shade.
Here are 5 really good reasons why you should always wear sunscreen:
1. Protection from UV rays
Sun cream helps to protect and shield your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays as well as prevent your skin from dangerous sunburns which are harmful for skin and can cause various infections and skin problems, like redness, itchiness, pain, irritability and peeling. I always recommend sunscreens between SPF 30 and 50.
2. Skin cancer prevention
It has been proved that wearing sun care products can prevent and decrease possibility of skin cancer development. In Ireland, where skin cancer is one of the most common cancer forms, this should be one of the most important things to remember!
3. Taking care of your skin health
Wearing sun cream will give your skin protection it needs to look healthy, glowing and flawless. I always recommend to use sun care products that also moisturize the skin in order to give it extra hydration during hot, sunny summer days.
4. Prevention of premature anti-aging
Wearing sun cream daily will also protect your skin from premature aging signs - wrinkles, fine lines, skin pigmentation, age spots, blotchy skin.
5. Better beauty treatment results
A lot of beauty treatments, like, facials, exfoliation or sugaring are great and beneficial ways to maintain the health of your skin but all the good work will be undone if your skin continuously will be damaged by harmful sun rays. So if you would like to get better results from your beauty treatments - protect your skin!
Remember that sun care products have to be applied last during your skin care routine, over serums and moisturizers. I would advise applying sun cream at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and re-apply every 2 hours to make sure the skin is properly protected.
