8 Reasons Wearing Sunscreen is Important


New Member
1. Reduce your risk of developing cancer.
Using sunscreen daily, whether it is cloudy or rainy, greatly reduces the risk of skin cancer. This is especially true of the most deadly form, melanoma, which accounts for 75% of all skin cancer deaths in Iowa.

2. It keeps you looking younger.
Did you know that one cause of premature aging of the face is ultraviolet exposure? By wearing sunscreen, you reduce the growth of wrinkles and sensitive skin.

3. Sunscreen keeps your skin tone even.
In addition to reducing skin aging, sunscreen prevents brown spots on the face and skin blemishes.

4. Ozone depletion is depleted.
Ozone acts as a shield for the earth by absorbing harmful UVB rays before they reach the ground. As the ozone layer disappears, your body needs extra protection from these harmful rays.

5. Wearing sunscreen sets for your children.
By the time children reach the age of 18, children will have spent a lot of time in the sun. Help protect yourself, and you, by making the safety of the sun a priority.

6. Sunscreen is important for all skin types.
Even if you do not heat up easily, wearing sunscreen is still important. Sunburn responds quickly, but sun damage occurs during a lifetime. Although skin cancer is more common in people with fair skin, it does not discriminate and can still affect those with darker skin.

7. The solar screen is much simpler than before.
Not a problem! With so many sun protection options, including sprays and sunscreen built-in moisturizer, using sunscreen is much easier than ever. Just be sure to reapply every two hours and after swimming, even if you are using a water-resistant type.

8. Sunscreen.
If you have ever been exposed to the sun, you realize that red, burning skin can be devastating. Heatstroke and heat exhaustion are some of the two worst health problems that can arise from exposure to the sun. Sunscreen, combined with other precautionary measures such as increased water use, can help you avoid these problems, which can cause nausea, cramps, and brain damage if left untreated.
