Ah, summer—the time of year when the sun shines brightly, inviting us to soak up its warmth and enjoy the great outdoors. While basking in the sunshine brings joy and rejuvenation, it’s important to remember that responsible sun protection is essential for our overall well-being. In this blog, we’ll explore what happens when we neglect sunscreen during summer exposure, as well as the benefits of embracing it as our skin’s best friend. Alyssa, our beloved True Beauty aesthetician, will regale you with reasons to always remember your sunscreen. Some of these reasons are seen below.
The Sun’s Rays and Your Skin: Before we dive into the consequences of forgoing sunscreen, let’s understand a bit about the sun’s rays and their impact on our skin. Sunlight comes with two forms of detrimental ultraviolet (UV) radiation: UVA and UVB. UVA rays delve deep into the skin, potentially bringing enduring harm, whereas UVB rays predominantly influence the outer layer causing sunburn.
By now, you understand the importance of using sunscreen during summer exposure. It’s not just about avoiding sunburns; it’s about safeguarding your skin’s health and preserving its natural beauty for years to come. Remember, applying sunscreen is a simple yet effective way to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays, allowing you to enjoy the summer to the fullest while keeping your skin safe and happy. So, slather on that sunscreen, soak up the sunshine responsibly, and embrace the warmth with confidence!
