When taking care of your skin, it’s not only completing your daily skincare routine in the morning or evening, but it also includes using the proper protection against the sun's harmful rays. This is done by applying sunscreen in order to keep your skin smooth and healthy. Here are the top reasons why you should wear sunscreen daily.
Lowering Your Risk of Skin Cancer
One of the best ways to reduce skin cancer is by wearing sunscreen. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 71,943 people were diagnosed with melanomas of the skin in 2013. By applying sunscreen everyday, you cut your risks of contracting skin cancers in half. The higher the SPF number, the better UV protection.
Reduces the Signs of Aging
Going out into the sun without sunscreen damages the collagen and connective tissues in the skin that keep the skin firm which then over time leads to losing elasticity in the skin and gaining lines, wrinkles, and sagging. This causes the look of aging since wrinkles and sagging are the most common signs. Wearing sunscreen helps from the deterioration of the tissues in the face and will therefore help keep your face secure.
Helps Keep an Even Skin Tone
Being constantly exposed to the sun's UV rays can also cause sunspots or discoloration which can increase the look of aging. Wearing sunscreen can help maintain a smoother and more even skin tone.
Protects the Skin from Sunburn
Having too much sun exposure or exposure to UV light, without protection, can cause painful burns on the skin. If this is repeated, it can cause increased sunspots, skin damage, and can increase your risk of skin cancer. It is crucial to always wear sunscreen, even on days when it's cool and cloudy. It is also important to reapply, as sunscreen can rub off or simply wear off especially after swimming or sweating or if you're out in the sun more than two hours.
Why ORGAID Youth Serum?
When pairing together sunscreen and the ORGAID Youth Serum, it essentially doubles-down on all the skin protecting benefits. The ORGAID Youth Serum contains Vitamin C that is effective for protecting the skin against free radicals and regulates structural collagen protein in the face. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid, which helps trap water in order to maintain the support of our tissue structure and increase the elasticity in our face. When using the ORGAID Youth Serum paired with sunscreen, the Vitamin C in the serum is an antioxidant that protects from the free radicals produced from the UV’s, which is the leading cause of damaged skin. It is important to know that ORGAID's Youth Serum does not work as a barrier between these UV rays, rather once they enter the skin, it slows the rate of damage and aids in skin repair, also helping with pigmentation and an increase in collagen production. In order to help protect your skin from damage, wearing sunscreen is a crucial part in doing so. It will keep your skin looking younger, smoother and healthy. Using our Youth Serum will protect the skin as well, helping the skin heal and fight those harmful UV rays. It is always important to keep your skin healthy, and wearing sunscreen and pairing it with our Youth Serum is the best defense against the harmful UV rays. This also means not only wearing sunscreen on sunny days, but 80% of UV rays pass through clouds while snow can reflect about 80% as well. So when in doubt: always wear sunscreen!
