Say Yes to Sun Protection
We all know sunscreen is important when spending time in the sun but how many of us actually make it a priority?
Sunscreen is much more important than we know! Not only does sunscreen protect your skin and health, it’s also about setting a great example for your family and the ones you love. Check out some of the best reasons that you should cover up this summer!
Lowers Risk from Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. “One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour.” These statistics can help us realize the importance taking care of our skin should have in our lives. No matter your skin type, using sunscreen is a must for the summer heat, especially if you’re living in Florida!
Protects Your Skin from UV Rays
A great thing about using sunscreen regularly while being outside in the sun, is how it protects your skin from UV rays that can be harmful. I know we all love to get that nice summer glow but it’s not worth damaging your skin in the process! Damage from UV rays can cause pre-mature aging of your skin (and let’s be real, no one wants that) and can also increase health risks such as sun spots that can turn cancerous. Looking for active ingredients like Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide in your sunscreen is a must if you’re being conscious for the best protection!
Set a Good Example for Your Family
Not only is protecting your health the top reason you should wear sunscreen, setting a great example for your family is also a great benefit. By making sunscreen a priority with your family, you’re helping them understand that their skin and health is important to a long lasting life!
Protects More than your Skin
Protecting your skin from the sun can mean more than sunscreen! Hats, sunglasses, and cover-ups are important in reducing risk for heatstroke, heat exhaustion, or any other issues that can arise from extended sun exposure. If you aren’t making this a priority, issues like nausea, muscle cramps, and even brain damage can occur from extensive sun exposure.
So say yes to great skin and health this summer season! We want to know how you stay protected during these hot sunny seasons, comment below and let us know!
