SPF is your BFF

4 benefits of using SPF every day:

  1. We’ll start with the most obvious benefit, wearing SPF daily prevents skin cancer. UV radiation is the number one risk factor of the three most common types of skin cancer. Consistent use of SPF and adequate protection is the best way to lower your risk.

  2. Wearing SPF everyday prevents signs of aging. UV exposure is responsible for 90% of signs of aging. Sun exposure and other environmental factors cause premature breakdown of collagen and the elasticity of your skin-- two things that break down as we age anyways, but added sun exposure speeds up the process and increases the signs of aging.

  3. Wearing SPF everyday reduces your risk of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation happens for many reasons, but sun exposure is one of the main causes. Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin experiences changes in the production of melanin, causing dark patches to appear on your skin. Since SPF shields your skin from the sun, it’s one of the best ways to prevent and protect your skin from the risk of hyperpigmentation.

  4. Wearing SPF everyday prevents skin inflammation + sun-sensitivity. There are many skin or health conditions that can cause you to be sensitive to sun exposure, meaning you are more likely to develop sunburns, rashes, or skin irritations. Rosacea is a common skin condition where skin inflammation can be triggered by the sun. If you are using retinoids, acids or other active ingredients in your skincare routine, SPF is a must as these products make your skin more sensitive to the sun than it would be otherwise.

The benefits of wearing SPF everyday are endless, and SPF is the best preventative skincare product you could ever invest in when it comes to aging, dark spots and skin inflammation. SPF should be the last step in your morning skincare routine, after moisturizer, and allow it to sit for at least 15-30 minutes before applying makeup so that it can fully absorb in your skin.
