Regular use of facial sunscreen is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. Sunscreen not only protects you from skin cancer, it also keeps the flesh from aging prematurely. Sun exposure is one of the leading causes of skin aging, whether burning bright during summertime or not.

Helps Prevent Skin Sagging

Facial sunscreen helps prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ultraviolet rays cause the breakdown of elastin, a skin fiber that keeps skin supple instead of saggy. The more elastin breaks down, the more skin sags and loses its ability to bounce back after being stretched. The right facial sunscreen blocks UVA and UVB rays to help prevent elastin breakdown.

Keeps Skin Looking Even

Skin protects itself from sun damage by increasing production of melanin, a dark pigment responsible for the “tan” look. Uneven melanin production happens in some people, causing the skin to feature irregular coloring. Facial sunscreen helps stop the skin from producing melanin and resulting in an uneven look.

Prevents Facial Redness

UV rays cause the blood vessels beneath the skin to permanently stretch, resulting in a reddish, mottled appearance. Diligent application of facial sunscreen helps prevent this issue, which also contributes to an aged look.

Protects Other Skin Proteins

Facial sunscreen protects the aforementioned elastin and other essential skin proteins that contribute to a youthful appearance. Collagen and keratin both keep skin looking smooth and healthy.
