Along with Spring’s change in temperature and humidity comes an increased risk of developing photodamaged skin.  Learn why Spring sun protection is so important and how you can keep your skin healthy and younger looking all year long. 


Why Is Sun Protection So Important? 

The sun emits harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays that, over time, can lead to premature aging, wrinkles, age spots, and sometimes even skin cancer. Even on cloudy days, UV rays can still penetrate and cause damage.  In addition, the sun’s angle changes as the season progresses, making it even more difficult to protect your skin from direct sunlight. 


How Can I Protect My Skin? 

There are several ways to protect your skin from the sun in the Spring: 

  • Always Wear Sunscreen: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even on cloudy days. Be sure to apply it generously to all exposed areas of your skin and reapply every two hours if you’re outside.We would suggest trying Triple Duty Plus Sunscreen SPF 35+, AM Daily Moisturizer SPF 45+, and Sheer Physical Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50. Triple Duty is an all-physical, mineral sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum sun protection with a sheer tint for an even glow. AM Daily Moisturizer is a deeply moisturizing product with hyaluronic & lactic acids to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while providing sun protection. Sheer Physical Sunscreen is a full-body sunscreen formulated with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for broad-spectrum sun protection. 
  • Cover Up: Wear SPF protective clothing such as long-sleeved shirts and hats when you’re outside for prolonged periods of time. 


What Are The Benefits of Springtime Sun Protection? 

There are multiple benefits to SPF in the Spring (and year-round).  Sun protection: 

  • Prevents Premature Aging. Sun protection helps prevent the development of wrinkles and brown spots, which can make you look older than you really are. 
  • Maintains Skin Health. Sun protection helps maintain the health of your skin by preventing damage that can lead to more serious skin conditions. 
  • Reduces the Risk of Developing Skin Cancer.  Wearing SPF daily can significantly lower your risk of developing skin cancer, the most common type of cancer in the U.S.
