Springtime and Sunscreen: Why You Need to Wear It

By Virginia Laird

With springtime in the air, many across the nation begin to transition into an outdoor lifestyle. Although most will overlook the need to use sunscreen while it is still cold outside, it is vital in protecting your skin from a great deal of damage. Dermatologists insist that making a habit of applying sunscreen daily, no matter the weather, can offer a host of benefits. A few reasons you should begin making sunscreen part of your skincare regimen include:

  • Wearing sunscreen protects the skin from burning
  • Application of sunscreen can help prevent signs of aging
  • Skin cancer can be prevented with the use of sunscreen

Wearing Sunscreen Protects the Skin From Burning

Sunburn is an extremely painful health issue. In some cases, a sunburn can be harmful enough to send the victim to the hospital for professional care. Dermatologists admit that wearing sunscreen is one of the best ways to prevent from burning while outdoors. These experts suggest that wearing sunscreen should be a daily habit. It is suggested that you begin the practice of applying it to your exposed skin prior to leaving your home each morning.

Application of Sunscreen Can Help Prevent Signs of Aging

Experts suggest that too much exposure to sun can speed up the aging process on your skin. Rather than being one who sports wrinkles and skin spots at an early age, dermatologists recommend that you begin wearing sunscreen daily. It is advised that you invest in a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15. Although this may be a habit you would prefer to skip, keep in mind that once the aging process begins to take over the body, it can be difficult to undo the damage. Protect your skin for a longer-lasting youthful look.

Skin Cancer Can Be Prevented With the Use of Sunscreen

Melanoma is one of the most deadly types of cancers from which many suffer. Experts suggest, in many cases, this cancer could have been avoided by protecting the skin. Research has long suggested that exposure to the sun increases the chances of developing skin cancer. For this reason, dermatologists advise patients that wearing sunscreen routinely can help decrease the chances of developing skin cancer.

Armed with this information, you can now make the best decision for your skin and your health.
