BENEFITS of Sunscreen

You have probably heard about the importance of sunscreen for your overall skin health and appearance. You should wear sunscreen daily as it is integral to your skincare regimen. Without it, your sensitive skin will be exposed to sun damage [1]. Michelle Freese, an esthetician at Kate Somerville for eight years in our Melrose Clinic, shared her thoughts on sunscreen usage.

Keeps Complexion Even

Sunscreen on the face can help to maintain a uniform complexion. Uneven skin tone can be caused by sun damage. Daily use of sunscreen helps prevent this.

Sun Protection

Sunscreen protects you from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Sunscreen reduces the penetration and triggering of various skin disorders by UV rays. Even mild sunburns can be damaging, so it’s essential to protect yourself.

It helps protect against the visible signs of premature aging

All of us want skin that is radiant, youthful, and healthy. Overexposure to the sun can cause wrinkles and fine lines [3]. Sunscreen can protect you from the damaging effects of skin aging and premature aging.

Cancer Risk Reduced

Sunscreen is highly effective at reducing your risk of developing skin cancers of all kinds, including melanoma. This form of skin cancer can be deadly for women in their 20s. You must use sunscreen every day to get the best protection.

Healthy Skin Overall

Michelle tells her clients, “Sunscreen is good for your skin.” When sunscreen is applied, it protects essential proteins like keratin. These proteins are responsible for maintaining the appearance and health of your skin.

Selecting a Product

Many clients are dreading the thought of having to wear sunscreen every day. They worry that sunscreen lotions may cause breakouts, make their skin look oily, and smell like sunscreen throughout the day. Skincare products have improved, and you don’t need old-school, slimy sunscreen to reap the benefits of daily sun protection. You should choose a sunscreen product suitable for your daily activities and how long you will spend in the sun.

Most people do not spend long periods in the sun. You don’t necessarily need a high SPF for daily sun protection. However, it would be best to look for a broad-spectrum cream to protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays. You should also consider your skin type when choosing a product. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to acne, fragrances and preservatives should be avoided. Those with dry skin may want to look for daily moisturizers that contain sunscreen.

Finding the best sunscreen for your skin and routine is critical. We take sun safety very seriously at Kate Somerville. UncompliKatedSPF is a broad spectrum SPF 50 face sunscreen with a fine mist that also works as a makeup setting spray. It reduces shine on your face and gives it a matte finish. The SPF protects against UV rays and helps to soften the look of wrinkles. We have also created a face sunscreen for sensitive skin that can be easily applied under makeup. This formula protects against UVA, UVB, and blue light.
