10 Compelling Reasons to Wear Sunscreen Every Day

Sea Spa is located in picturesque Steilacoom, on the shores of Commencement Bay in the Pacific Northwest. We get our fair share of rain here and love seeing the sun. And while we know that the sun, with its warm rays and golden hues, is a life-giving force that sustains our planet we also know that too much sun has the potential to harm our skin.

For us, sunscreen isn't just a seasonal accessory for beach days; it's a daily essential for safeguarding our skin against the sun's powerful rays. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends we wear an SPF of 30 every day.

Now, let's talk about our top 10 reasons people need to wear sunscreen every day.

Sunscreen Helps Maintain Healthy Skin All Year

Sunscreen is a year-round necessity, not just a summer essential. UV rays can penetrate clouds and even windows, so wearing sunscreen every day ensures consistent protection against sun damage, regardless of the weather.

It Shields Against Harmful UV Rays

This is part of the basics; sunscreen serves as a protective barrier, shielding the skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Prolonged exposure to UV rays can lead to sunburn, premature aging, and increase the risk of skin cancer.

Sunscreen Prevents Premature Aging

Sunscreen helps prevent premature aging by blocking the sun's UVA rays, which contribute to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. Regular use of sunscreen can maintain your skin's youthful appearance.

It Reduces the Risk of Skin Cancer

This is a big one. Skin cancer is a serious health concern, and prolonged exposure to UV rays is a significant risk factor. Wearing sunscreen daily is a simple yet effective measure to reduce the risk of developing skin cancer.

It Helps Maintain an Even Skin Tone

Sunscreen helps prevent the development of uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure, and consistent use can contribute to a more radiant and uniform complexion.

It Protects Against Sunburn

Sunburns are not only uncomfortable and sometimes painful, but they also damage the skin. Sunscreen acts as a barrier, preventing sunburn and reducing the risk of peeling and long-term skin damage.

Sunscreen can Preserve Collagen and Elastin

UV rays can break down collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, which leads to sagging skin and loss of elasticity. Sunscreen helps preserve these essential proteins, promoting firmer and more resilient skin.

Sunscreen Enhances Your Skincare Routine

Sunscreen is wonderful because compliments other skincare products by providing an additional layer of protection. It ensures that the benefits of serums, moisturizers, and other products you use are not compromised by sun damage.

It Safeguards Against Photodermatitis or Photosensitivity.

Some individuals may experience a condition called photodermatitis, which is an abnormal skin reaction to sunlight. Sunscreen provides an extra layer of protection for those prone to this condition, minimizing the risk of flare-ups.

Wearing Sunscreen Promotes a Lifelong Healthy Habit

All of us need to establish and maintain the habit of applying sunscreen daily. It instills a sense of responsibility for one's skin health and is an investment in you!

We hope we have convinced you that wearing sunscreen every day is a simple yet powerful act of self-care. It's not just about vanity; it's about preserving the health and vitality of our skin. By making sunscreen a daily ritual, we ensure that our skin remains resilient, radiant, and protected throughout our lives. So, slather on that sunscreen and embrace the sun responsibly!
