Why You Should Wear Sunscreen

As the hot summer months are quickly approaching, it’s important to remember to apply sunscreen. Sunscreen decreases your risk of skin cancer, protects your skin from early aging, and keeps sunburns away.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, everyone should be wearing sunscreen because it helps protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. The sun is powerful, and no matter who you are, anyone is susceptible to skin cancer.

Choosing sunscreen can be difficult because there are so many options. A protective sunscreen offers these 3 things:

  • broad-spectrum protection
  • SPF 30 and above
  • water resistance

There are other ways to protect your skin, too:

  • seek shade under an umbrella
  • wear a hat and sunglasses
  • wear sun-protective clothing
  • avoid the sun between 10am and 4pm

When in the sun, the best way to protect your skin against harmful UV rays is to wear sunscreen.
