Are you wearing sunscreen everyday, all year?! If not, you should be! Find out why...

What's your sunscreen skincare routine like? Most of us know how important applying sunscreen is in the summer months to avoid sunburn and skin damage, but what most of us forget is, it really should be a year-round priority.

And if you're wondering, why? 
Danielle Glover, pharmacist, and skincare formulator owner of Australian skincare brand {SIMPLE as that} explains all below...

Why do I need to wear sunscreen everyday all year?
Cloudy days are no reason to become complacent about applying sunscreen, even on cooler days. What most people forget is that UV radiation has nothing to do with the temperature and that up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays can actually pass through clouds making sunscreen a must in your daily routine all year long.

Here are the top four reasons why applying sunscreen should be a daily habit no matter the season.

  • It protects your skin from UV rays: the depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage from harmful UV rays. Sunscreen blocks these rays, greatly reducing the likelihood of sunburn. Look for products with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • It lowers your skin cancer risk:  studies have shown that wearing sunscreen reduces the risk of developing skin cancer.
  • It prevents premature aging of the Skin: we all know that damage from the sun's UV rays causes photoaging of the skin - photoaging, over time is characterised as a thick, dark, leathery look and a breakdown of collagen, which contributes to lines, wrinkles and premature ageing. Studies show that people below the age of  55 who apply sunscreen regularly have 24 percent less chance of developing these signs of aging than those who don’t.
  • It helps maintain an even skin tone: Sunscreen helps prevent dark spots and discolouration from sun damage helping you maintain a smoother and more even skin tone.

So do you want to protect your skin and maintain a youthful complexion? You know what to do – wear sunscreen all day, every day - simple as that!
