On Becoming Hopelessly Devoted to Sunscreen
Did you know that just by being outside every day, you expose your skin to premature aging? It’s safe to say that most people underestimate the damage to their skin from brief daily sun exposure.
Show your skin some love winter, spring, summer, and fall. All you have to do is add sunscreen to your daily routine. We’re not just talking about using sunscreen on your face. It is the constant UV damage to the skin on your arms, legs, chest, and hands that can give away your age. A top-notch sunscreen routine for the entire body is essential.
Things to remember:
- Anytime you are outside, you are exposed to the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. It doesn’t matter if there is full on sun, cloud cover, or if it’s hot or cold. Protecting skin, even during the hazy and cloudy days of winter, is crucial.
- Also, the sun is sly. If you sit by a window at work, you’re exposed to sun damage since more than 50 percent of UV rays can penetrate glass.
- Headed on a road trip? Roll on your sunscreen! By law, your car’s front windshield must be treated to filter out UV rays, but this does not apply to the other windows in the car.
And do it all before you leave the house. Why? Well, sunscreen goes to work almost immediately, providing protection upon application, for one. Its active ingredients include all those beneficial compounds that help keep you looking young, (even more) beautiful, and healthy for years to come.
Protecting your skin is a natural everyday priority. Project Sunscreen’s reef-friendly formulas start with naturally derived zinc oxide, and are fragrance, PABA, paraben and phthalate free. No chemical UV filters and filled with naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, a good blend of antioxidants, and moisturizing ingredients to help protect against the drying effects of the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays, it’s perfect for all ages, skin tones and types.
Nothing ages the skin more than the sun. So, love your skin and fall in love with sunscreen.
