“Did you put on sunscreen today?” Many of us have heard this question growing up and even said it to ourselves sometimes. As we get older, we realize what it means to have a good skin care routine. Every now and then we run into our good friend sunscreen and wonder if it’s worth putting into our skin care routine. Trust us, it is!
Sunscreen is a definite must if you are planning on being out in the sunshine all day. Even if the weather turns to rain, sunscreen can skill protect your skin.
Here are some benefits sunscreen can provide for us!
- Protection from UV rays, or ultra violet rays, originating the ozone layer in the atmosphere. These rays can cause wrinkles, premature aging, and sun damage. Luckily, sunscreen can protect your skin from UV rays.
