Discussing the importance of sun protection

First and foremost, it's crucial to understand why sun protection matters. UV rays from the sun penetrate the skin and cause damage to cells and DNA. Short-term effects include reddening, burning, and pain from a sunburn. But over time, UV exposure leads to wrinkles, age spots, and growths.


It also significantly increases skin cancer risk. About 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancers and 86% of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV radiation. Clearly, protecting yourself is vital. 


Sunscreens have also come so far and formulated much differently today.  There include very comfortable lightweight options as well as tinted options which are going to give you your moisturizer, some coverage and spf all in one step.
