From Rihanna’s daily skincare routine, to pretty much any small beauty blogger on YouTube – you’ll find that one of the most essential items in your daily skincare routine is…you guessed it – Sunscreen!
Here are five reasons why you should wear sunscreen every day.
It protects your skin from UV Rays
This one is the most obvious, as UV rays are the primary cause for skin conditions and discomforts ranging from burning, all the way to skin cancer! Don’t take this lightly as there are some things in life that we just can’t reverse, and there is a reason why we say prevention is cure! Choose something with a high SPF for better protection – such as the WOW Skin Science AM2PM SPF 50 Water Resistant Sunscreen Lotion – designed to keep you protected from morning till night.
It prevents aging
While we here on this blog stress the importance of sunscreen from a more environmentally conscious way, the reason why a lot of beauty bloggers and top celebrities swear by sunscreen is because it helps your skin stay young longer by preventing harmful radicals in the air from affecting your skin, and causing premature aging! WOW Skin Science Anti-Pollution SPF40 Water Resistant Sunscreen Lotion is a good choice as it contains a skin shield made from Alteromonas Ferment Extract, Liquorice Extract and Vitamin B3 to help protect against pollutants and free radicals.
It keeps your skin tone even
Have you noticed that there are spots around your mouth, and your eyes and even your nose that seem to have a different colour compared to the general tone of your face? Just like the premature aging of your skin, harmful radicals in the air can cause pigment cells on your face to fire up. Putting sunscreen on regularly WILL protect your face from coming into contact with these radicals and keep your tone even and smooth!
It keeps your skin hydrated
We all know that dehydration is one of the main causes that make your skin look dull and dry. Even if you wanted to put make-up on to cover it up, it’s harder to apply make-up to dry skin. Good sunscreens always contain elements that will help you hydrate your skin throughout the day and help your complexion stay smooth and supple. So don’t forget to drink water today, and while you’re at it, definitely don’t forget your sunscreen! Pick a good one with added actives such as the WOW Skin Science UV Water Transparent Sunscreen Spray SPF 50 that is infused with cooling and hydrating raspberry and carrot seed extracts!
It can help Skin Sensitivity problems in the long run
Over a long period of time, regular use of good quality sunscreen will help control some of these sensitivities by protecting your skin from coming into contact with them. Other than the solid list of reasons above why you should wear sunscreen daily, this is definitely one that will help keep you confident and comfortable throughout your day. And don’t forget to teach your kids the importance of wearing sunscreen every day as well. Just as you teach them to eat the right foods and dress appropriately for the weather, this is also an important form of self-care.
