You must have heard that sunscreen is an essential for our day to day lives and that the more the sunscreen, the better! But why? What’s the reason(s) behind it? It’s time to find out!
Whether you’re running an errand, heading to your workplace, travelling or even just going out, always remember to apply sunscreen, and that too, generously! ‘But why?’ you may ask. Here are some reasons why sunscreen is essential and the best one you can invest in right now!
1. Protection from UV Rays
The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays pass through the Earth’s O-Zone layer. With the passage of time and increase in pollution and global warming, the O-Zone layer has deteriorated, leading to more harmful rays passing through the earth’s atmosphere. These rays can cause irreversible damage to your skin, such as skin burns, allergies, etc. Hence, the world’s leading dermatologists swear by sunscreen and recommend using SPF 30 or more, to avoid damage.
2. Bye bye premature aging!
Damage from the UV rays can lead to ageing skin, breakdown of the collagen, leading to wrinkles and prominent lines. Applying sunscreen can reduce the chances of ageing skin by 24 percent, meaning you get to have clear and healthier skin for a longer time! How amazing is that!
3. Gives you an even skin tone and prevents discolouration
Sunscreen reduces the chances of discolouration and also prevents dark spots. Applying it gives an instant boost and leaves you with even-looking skin. For makeup, just apply a single layer of light foundation or just a simple BB cream. Get ready to embrace summer with an instant glow on your face!
