IMPORTANCE OF WEARING SUNSCREEN EVERYDAY
3rd April 2023 /
These days everyone is focusing on the importance of applying sunscreen daily but what actually a sunscreen is and does it protect your skin?
A sunscreen, also called a sun block, is a photoprotective topical product for skin that protects the outer layer of the skin from all the damage caused to the skin by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
Most people think that sunscreen is important to prevent sunburns and tanning but it is also a preventive health measure that protects the health of the skin. On the other hand, people think that they need sunscreen only when they are going out or whenever they are exposed to the sun for a long period of time but they tend to forget is that sunscreen is a major product that acts as a shield on the skin to protect it from the radiations that are present indoors as well. So, it is important to understand that wearing sunscreen lowers the chances of putting your skin at risk.
Here are some reasons why applying sunscreen should be a daily habit:
1. It protects the skin from the harsh UV rays
The depletion of the ozone layer has increased the chances of sun damage from the harmful UV rays. Sunscreen blocks these rays reducing the chances of sunburns. Using sunscreen with SPF 50 is a must, Himaira’s sunscreen mousse SPF 50 is your perfect partner for the weather conditions that we have in India.
2. Lowers the chances of skin cancer
Skin cancer has ill effects that can be threatening. 90% of cases are caused by the ultraviolet radiations from the sun exposure. By applying sunscreen you cut down the risk of contracting skin cancer in half. The effect of the UVA and UVB rays can penetrate deeper into the skin and can cause serious damage to the skin cells. Himaira offers its sunscreen mousse with broad spectrum protection, which means high protection from UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
3. Prevents Premature Aging
We all love to look younger and have good skin. Using sunscreen shields the skin from the rays which reduces the chances of developing signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, sunspots, hyperpigmentation, loose skin, photodamage and dry skin. Himaira’s sunscreen mousse is enriched with Almond Oil and Vitamin E that protects the skin from the UV damage, keeping the skin soft and smooth.
4. Maintains even skin tone
Sunscreen when used religiously helps in decreasing already existing sunspots, discoloration and also prevents from getting the new ones. It provides smoother, softer and even toned skin. Himaira’s sunscreen has a mousse texture, allows easy application, is non-comedogenic and prevents any kind of irritations and allergic reactions.
5. It boosts the health of your skin
Whether face or body, both need proper protection from the sun in order for it to be healthy. The already present skin proteins like collagen, elastin and keratin are well protected by sunscreen making your skin healthy and beautiful. Reapplying the sunscreen every 3-4 hours keeps the skin protected throughout the day.
