Why Is Sunscreen Important?

As the warmth of spring transitions into the sunny days of summer, it’s the perfect time to
prioritize your skin’s health. Sunscreen is a critical part of your skin care as summer approaches and we begin to spend our days playing in the sun!


Why is wearing sunscreen daily so essential?


1. Prevents skin cancer

May is Melanoma Awareness Month. Melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer caused
by sun damage. This month is dedicated to raising awareness about the dangers of skin
cancer and the importance of sun protection. Sunscreen is a simple way to keep your
skin safe this summer.


2. Prevents premature aging

Sunscreen keeps you looking young! UV rays accelerate skin aging, causing wrinkles,
fine lines, and sunspots. By blocking these harmful rays sunscreen keeps your skin
young and healthy. Sunscreen is an investment in your skin now and in the future.


3. Prevents sunburn

This is one of the more obvious benefits. Sunburns are not only painful but also
incredibly damaging to the skin. Repeated sunburns lead to an increased risk of skin
cancer and damage the overall health of your skin over time. Sunscreen provides a
protective layer that blocks UV rays from damaging the skin.
