Do I Really Need To Wear SPF All Year Round?

Hillary Clark

 

Most of us slather on sunscreen for a day at the beach or on the slopes but do you know that 85% of all sun damage occurs from casual UV exposure and contributes to the majority of visible signs of age. We are talking sunspots, lack of firmness, wrinkles, compromised cellular function and skin cancer.

 

Rain or shine, wear protection!

Let's think about that for a moment... the majority of critical damage doesn't happen recreationally, it happens a little bit every day- when you are walking to and from your car, with your dog, and doing all of your other quick daily errands that expose you to environmental stressors and irreversible sun damage at the cellular level. The cumulative daily damage is much worse than the occasional burn during recreational activities.

 

Are you protecting yourself properly?


OOOPS-  did you miss a spot? Most missed areas include:

Top of the ears

Behind the ears

Front and back of the neck

Eyelids

Top of hands

Under the chin


Another thing to remember about sunscreen formulas is to always select a physical SPF rather than a chemical SPF what is the difference?

Physical SPF contains natural minerals such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which create a protective barrier on the top of the skin so that UV rays cannot penetrate epidermis. Chemical sunscreens, on the other hand, allow UV rays to penetrate the epidermis where the chemicals quote unquote break up the harsh the dangerous UVA and UVB rays however it is better for your skin not to be exposed to them at all.
