The whole world of skincare emphasises on the importance of sunscreen. As per Dermatologists, sunscreen is a must-step in the skincare routine for every individual. Whether you stay indoors or you step out, skipping sunscreen is the biggest sin. Let’s throw light on a few of the key reasons you should strongly consider adding sunscreen to your skincare routine:
It prevents your skin from photo-ageing
Do you know the damage caused by the sun results in pre-mature ageing. 90% of visible changes in the skin occur due to exposure to UVA rays. While UVA rays cause tanning of the skin, but UVB rays cause long-term damage. They penetrate deep into the dermis and damage the collagen fibres. This causes incorrect skin rebuilding, which forms fine lines and wrinkles.
Prevents skin discoloration and pigmentation
Every skin produces melanin. UV lights intensify melanin production. When melanin is produced in excess, then it is called hyperpigmentation. UV rays also causes the darkening of the skin which is known as tanning. Sunscreen prevents the damaging ultraviolet rays from damaging the skin and prevents it from discolouration and pigmentation.
Reduces the risk of skin cancer
Studies show that approximately 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers and 65% of melanoma skin cancers are associated with UV rays. Sunscreen acts as a shield and protects the UV rays from entering the layers of your skin, protecting it from further damage and skin cancer. But just sunscreen is not enough. One should also avoid peak exposure to sun, especially between 10 am to 3 pm.
Skin is prone to redness, irritation and inflammation, especially if you have sensitive and inflammatory skin. Sunscreen prevents inflammation caused due to photodermatitis by preventing direct contact of UV rays with the skin.
