Many people think sunscreen is just for beach days, but we know better. Because May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, it’s a fabulous time to explore the many benefits of daily SPF application. Here goes:
Applying SPF every day, rain or shine, helps you:
1. Prevent skin cancer!
Skin cancer is THE most common form of cancer in the country, and do you know what causes most cases of skin cancer? The sun’s damaging UV rays, of course. Your first line of defense is an SPF of 30 or higher, applied every day, rain or shine. We prefer a physical sunblock over chemical formulas. Physical sunscreens gently coat the skin and literally block rays from penetrating. We offer medical-grade sunscreens by Alastin® and ZO® Skin Health, two amazing skin care lines that pack their sunscreens with nourishing antioxidants and other active ingredients to improve your skin while fending off the damaging elements.
2. Age like a Kardashian
Trust us, you don’t have to be a celebrity to age beautifully. Last year, researchers followed a group of people who were asked to apply sunscreen every day for a year. What they discovered is super exciting: Daily sunscreen application not only prevented sun damage, but it also improved existing signs of sun damage, such as lines and wrinkles and age spots. We think this study is a game changer in skin care—the idea that SPF can actually improve your skin? How is that not amazing?!
