Prevent Premature Aging! 10 Sunscreen Brands For Your Face & Body
SPF is important, ladies!
We’re all dreaming of beach trips and donning our favorite swimsuits this time of the year. But even if you are not headed for the beach, always have a bottle of sunscreen within your reach to protect you from the sun’s harsh UV rays. Dermatologists have emphasized time and time again that no matter how complex your skincare routine is, it will all go to waste if you don’t get enough SPF.
Why should I use sunscreen?
According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, sunscreen serves as your skin’s shield from ultraviolet rays, thus slowing the aging process and the damage that it can bring to your skin.
A 2017 journal by the Philippine Dermatological Society further proves that sunscreen is an important tool against photoaging and skin cancer. “Dermatoheliosis and melasma, a condition largely associated with accumulated sun exposure, are noted to figure prominently among the dermatologic complaints made by Filipinos. That being said, the importance of photoprotection, including the proper use of sunscreens, cannot be overemphasized.”
