Answer: Sunscreen is the best anti-aging skin care product that has been proven to slow down the signs of aging. And yes, you really do need to wear it every day.
I understand why you might not feel excited about incorporating sunscreen into your daily skincare regimen. You are used to the old-school chemical sunscreens that have a higher chance of producing skin irritation and are thick and greasy. But if you want to slow down the signs of aging, it’s time to incorporate sunscreen into your daily routine. I prefer Suntegrity’s mineral sunscreens because they are moisturizing, lightweight, and provide a physical barrier on the skin that reflects dangerous youth stealing rays. Bonus, you are not absorbing all those harmful chemicals into your skin!
Here are three (3) reasons why applying sunscreen should be a daily habit year-round.
1). Sunscreen Prevents Premature Aging of the Skin:
Is a tan this summer worth the extra wrinkles in 10 years? UV rays cause a breakdown of collagen, which contributes to fine lines, sagging, and wrinkles. If you want to reduce the signs of aging, I suggest you make sunscreen your friend. I use Suntegrity's "5 in 1" Natural Tinted Sunscreen every day because this "UV Chemical-Free" Tinted Sunscreen renews, hydrates, protects and covers the skin.
2). Sunscreen Helps Maintain an Even Skin Tone:
Being exposed to the sun’s UV rays can also cause sunspots, which increases the look of aging. Sunscreen helps prevent discoloration and dark spots from sun damage, helping you maintain a smoother and more even skin tone. It is so much easier to avoid sun damage than to fix it. Suntegrity's Sunscreen and Primer protects you from UVA and UVB rays. It is a face moisturizer, sunscreen, and make-up primer, making your skin look more even-toned. I use this under my 5 in 1 tinted for added protection.
3). Most Importantly, Sunscreen Lowers Your Skin Cancer Risk: Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. By applying sunscreen each day, you cut your risk of contracting skin cancers in half. To try to prevent skin cancer, wear sunscreen every day and reapply. I love Suntegrity's Pressed Mineral Powder because it makes it easier to reapply.
Convenience Tip: Nothing breaks your sunscreen wearing best intentions, like not having your sunscreen on hand. Try carrying one in your purse and putting some in your glove compartment in your car for those sunscreen emergencies.
