Why do you need Sunscreen everyday?

In order to have healthy skin, one of the simplest and easiest ways to achieve it is through applying sunscreen. Sunscreens are one of the best products that you can use to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Whether inside or outside of the home, applying sunscreen can maintain healthy looking skin. Without sunscreen, the skin will be prone to sunburn, skin cancer, discoloration, and other skin problems.

In fact, according to experts, regular daily usage of SPF 15 sunscreen can lower the risk of melanoma by 50% and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) by 40% respectively. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and the number next to it indicates how well the sunscreen protects skin from sunburn. When using sunscreen, use it with an SPF of 15 or higher if spends the majority of the day indoors and only briefly outdoors. There is a need for a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater if spends a lot of time outside, especially during peak sun hours.

When using sunscreen, the ideal time to apply it is 30 minutes before going outside to give the skin time to absorb it. On a cloudy day, up to 80% of the sun's UV rays still reach the earth. Not using sunscreen puts the skin at risk.

Wearing sunscreen is one of the simplest ways to protect your skin. If you want a sunscreen that matches your skincare routine, try our very own Moisturizing Sun Defence, formulated with a broad spectrum of sunscreens, including titanium dioxide, a physical blocker sunscreen. Titanium dioxide is more stable and effective at protecting the skin from the sun's rays due to its resistance to UV-induced coloring. This cream provides great defense against dangerous UVA/UVB and infrared rays to lessen the risk of sunburn and photodamage (which causes premature aging).
