5 Reasons to Wear Sunscreen This Summer

Dealing with a sunburn is never any fun, especially if it impacts your day-to-day activities. However, that’s not the only reason to wear sunscreen this summer. Those UV rays can do some serious damage to your skin, causing a host of problems if you’re not careful. The professionals from Consultants in Ophthalmic and Facial Plastic Surgery want to help keep your skin in great shape, so they’ve collected some insightful facts for you below.

If you want to avoid reconstructive eyelid surgery and other issues, here are some reasons sunscreen is a must.

Sunscreen Keeps You Looking Younger

One of the primary causes of premature aging is overexposure to ultraviolet rays. This means that if you want to hang onto that youthful appearance as long as possible, wearing sunscreen is imperative. Otherwise, you might find yourself with a host of wrinkles and leathery skin.

It Prevents Cancer

Skin cancer is certainly nothing to joke about. Using sunscreen on a daily basis, regardless of the weather, will help you drastically reduce your chances of developing skin cancer down the road. It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy or raining out, those UV rays will still be able to reach you, so if you’re concerned about your skin always err on the side of caution.

Keeps Your Skin Tone Even  

Sunscreen slows the aging process, in addition to keeping your skin attractive by preventing blemishes like facial brown spots and discolorations. If you have great skin from head to toe, wearing sunscreen is one of the best ways to maintain an even tone.

Sets a Good Example 

You probably don’t want your friends or family to have to invest in reconstructive eyelid surgery down the road or risk developing melanoma or another type of cancer, right? You can set a good example by lathering up that sunscreen when necessary and showing others how important it is to protect themselves from harmful UV rays. 

Sunscreen Offers Protection from Heatstroke

Sunscreen doesn’t only offer you protection from sunburns, there are a host of other issues that can develop from extended exposure to UV rays, including heatstroke, nausea and even muscle cramps.
