Don't just think of the sun's rays as sunlight, think of it as radiation that can damage your skin - or worse.
Below are five great reasons to wear sunscreen, for your health and for your good looks!
Getting sunburned sucks. It's painful, it's itchy and irritating, and it's entirely preventable by applying and re-applying sunscreen every couple of hours throughout the day.
You are more likely to get skin cancer than any type of cancer. And if it's melanoma, which is more rare, but deadly, it can spread to other parts of your body. Sunscreen helps you avoid what could be a serious health issue for you.
Aging is a natural part of life. But some people seem to hang onto their smooth skin longer than others. What is their secret? While family genes play a role, it's also likely that they take care of their skin. Wearing sunscreen every day, even on a cloudy day, can aid in your fight against premature aging.
While broken blood vessels sounds like a serious a problem, it's mostly bad for your ego. Who wants to walk around with blotchy lines and discoloration on their face, or any other part of the body?
Let's face it, you're never going to look like a Kardashian if you have blotchy skin. Prevent brown spots and other skin discoloration by applying sunscreen.
