what you need to know about sun damage and how to protect your skin
No shock here: Daily SPF use is the singular BEST defense against signs of aging.
When asked “do you need SPF daily?” many people would confidently shake their heads: They think that SPF is only necessary for the weekends, when you hit the beach, run outside, have a picnic, or relax by the pool. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case, because the sun doesn’t take a break from sending its harmful UV rays through the atmosphere, not even in winter. UV rays can also penetrate glass, meaning you can experience skin damage just by sitting near a window… more on that below.)
But the good news is that it’s easy to stay protected from these skin-aging and -damaging UV rays. SPF takes less time to apply than brushing your teeth, and you do that at least twice daily (we hope).
Still, we don’t want to leave you with a lesson without backing it up with information. So, here are the most important things to know about using SPF and getting maximum benefits from your sunscreen products.
