Sunscreen: The Ultimate Skin Care Tool

It’s no secret that the sun can be damaging to your skin but what many people don’t realize is just how easy it is to protect your skin with sunscreen. Sunscreen should be an essential part of everyone’s daily skin care routine, and here’s why.


How Sunscreen Works

Sunscreen works by creating a barrier between your skin and the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV rays are responsible for causing wrinkles, age spots and other signs of premature aging. Wearing sunscreen every day helps prevent damage from the sun and keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. Sunscreens also come in a variety of SPF levels which offer different levels of protection from the sun’s harmful rays. The higher the SPF level, the more protection you get from UVA and UVB rays.


Types of Sunscreens

There are two main types of sunscreen: chemical and physical. Chemical sunscreens work by absorbing UV rays before they reach your skin while physical sunscreens act as a barrier on top of your skin that reflect UV rays away from it. It is important to choose a sunscreen that suits your particular needs; those with sensitive skin may benefit more from physical sunscreens while those who need long-lasting protection may prefer chemical ones. Additionally, there are now several “natural” or mineral-based sunscreens available that are made without chemicals or animal products, making them ideal for vegans or those looking for a more natural approach to skin care. 


No matter what type of sunscreen you decide to use, it is important to remember that wearing it every day is key to preventing premature aging and other unwanted side effects from exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Clinicians can provide their patients with valuable information about choosing the right sunscreen for their particular needs so they can keep their skin safe and healthy all year round! Don’t forget sunscreen, never leave home without it!
