Why is Sunscreen Necessary?

Why is Sunscreen Necessary?

Well, this is one of the questions I myself thought of as a child whenever I saw my dad applying sunscreen on my skin before sending me out to play during summer vacations. Now that I have grown up and gained knowledge about its importance I thank him a lot. Hence, today I thought of sharing this important piece of knowledge with you guys in order to make you aware of how harmful UV-Rays can be to your delicate skin.

What Are UV-Rays?ย 

UV-Rays are a form of radiation that is emitted by the sun. While it has some benefits for people, including the creation of Vitamin D, it also can cause health risks.

ย Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus from food and assists bone development. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends 5 to 15 minutes of sun exposure 2 to 3 times a week.

๐”๐•๐€ and ๐”๐•๐ ๐‘๐š๐ฒ๐ฌ are the ones that I consider as the most harmful ones since UVA rays, while slightly less intense than UVB, penetrate your skin more deeply. Exposure causes genetic damage to cells on the innermost part of your top layer of skin, where most skin cancers occur. Over time, UVA also leads to premature aging and skin cancer. While UVB rays have slightly more energy than UVA rays. They can damage the DNA in skin cells directly, and are the main rays that cause sunburns. They are also thought to cause most skin cancers. Along with all this, skin discoloration can occur as well causing skin inflammation.

The biggest change you can make in your daily skincare routine is by applying sunblock regularly in the morning and throughout the day no matter if you are heading out or staying home. You should talk to your dermatologist about it as well if you notice any skin changes. ๐€๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ ๐’๐ฎ๐ง๐›๐ฅ๐จ๐œ๐ค ๐†๐ž๐ฅ ๐’๐๐…๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ can be a good choice since its organic with zero side effectsย  and a non-greasy texture which will provide you the following benefits :
