According to SkinCancer.com, “Sunscreens are products combining several ingredients that help prevent the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation from reaching the skin. Two types of ultraviolet radiation,UVA and UVB, damage the skin and increase your risk of skin cancer. Sunscreens vary in their ability to protect against UVA and UVB.”
Sunscreen is (or should be) an essential part of your skincare routine. It is used for several reasons.
First, it is used to proven the sun’s harmful rays for burning your skin, leaving unsightly red, irritated skin. This can lead to more serious skin damage such as developing skin cancer such as melanoma. Statistics prove that a person’s risk for being diagnosed with melanoma doubles with 5+ sunburns. Almost half the population get at least one sunburn each year which is a growing statistic.
