SPF is your BFF!
In this new age of health & wellness, there is so much emphasis placed on what we are putting into our bodies. We hear, “eat clean, maintain a healthy lifestyle, drink water, etc” but it's no secret that what we are putting onto our bodies is just as essential, if not more.
An SPF a day keeps the wrinkles away! Many of our providers here at SpaDerma even believe that sunscreen ought to be labeled an anti-aging product, as studies show that 90% of the visible signs of aging are attributed to some form of sun damage! Wearing sunscreen every day will not just prevent wrinkles later on in life, it will also reduce your risk of skin cancer by at least 40%. Gone are the days of “fake baking” and hitting up the tanning salon every week in hopes of achieving that ever coveted glow. The fact of the matter is however, UV radiation just from daily sun exposure has high carcinogenic activity and gives rise to long-term risks of skin cancer.
Why It’s Important
The Hard Facts
With the number of skin cancer related deaths each year more than doubling since the 90s, daily SPF is more crucial than ever before. Living in an area with heavy cloud coverage however does not exempt you from wearing daily SPF! Clouds only block 20% of UV rays, leaving you at risk of sun damage whether it be in the rain or snow. This is why safety while having fun in the sun is something everyone should practice. The good news is that the range of treatments and preventative measures is rapidly expanding and we are here for it!
