How To Protect Your Skin From Sun Damage: Wear Sunscreen Every Day!
Whether you spend the whole day outside, take a short daily walk or simply step outside to run errands your skin is exposed to the harsh rays of the sun, even on cloudy days. This exposure accumulates over time, so much so that it can cause permanent damage. Sun damage (photodamage) is the main cause of premature aging and skin cancer. The most common signs of sun damage include wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and a repressed immune system.
How do you protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays? The first line of defense is to use a SPF of 15 or above daily. UV light can harm your skin whether it’s sunny or overcast, so applying sunscreen on sunny days only isn’t enough. You need to wear an SPF every day, all year round.
