Are you applying sunscreen to your face before stepping out of your home?
If not, you should be aware of the effects of not wearing sunscreen.
We know that the sun produces harmful rays called UV rays, when our skin is exposed to these harmful rays it will cause huge damage to the skin.
Some common damage you can notice on your skin due to harmful rays are wrinkles, premature aging of the skin, liver spots and leather skin.
You might be wondering how UV rays will damage the skin.
Let's take a deep look at this.
Skin is composed of 3 layers: an outer layer, middle layer, and inner layer.
The outer layer is the epidermis, this outer layer is composed of cells which is responsible to protect our skin when the sun's harmful rays strike on our skin.
When sun rays hit the skin, cells beneath the epidermis layer will be pushed to the surface of the skin to make the skin thick.
This action in turn makes our skin tough and gives a leathery feel.
Here are few reasons to wear sunscreen.
1. It reduces the risk of skin cancer.
UV radiations are the main risk factors that cause skin cancer such as squamous cell skin cancer, melanoma, and basal cell skin cancer.
Applying sunscreen regularly helps in reducing your risk, which is why you should prioritize wearing sunscreen.
2. It reduces the risk of premature aging
One of the main reasons why most of them experience premature aging is due to exposure to the sun's radiation.
UV rays are responsible for the premature breakdown of collagen elastin in the skin which causes discoloration, sunspots, leathery-looking skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Over 90% of percent of visible signs of aging is caused by UV rays.
Applying Sunscreen will reduce the risk of premature aging.
3. It reduces the risk of hyperpigmentation
UV rays damage melanocytes - a pigment-producing cell, causing overproduction of melanin and lead to hyperpigmentation.
To protect your skin from all these issues you must really think about using sunscreen and keep your skin healthy and beautiful.
4. It protects from sunburn
UV rays damage the DNA of immune protecting cells and increase the risk of skin cancer.
Sunburn is the most common issue caused by harmful UV radiation and most of them use sunscreen to protect their skin from sunburn. However, using sunscreen can also prevent heat stroke.
Thus applying sunscreen can help you prevent all these health issues.
