You are probably totally sick of hearing that you should be wearing SPF every day, right? I know I do, but I’ve done a little bit of research myself and it’s a big thing and a serious problem. Drinking blueberry smoothies in hopes that all the fruity antioxidants will keep you glowing is not enough. Buying expensive beauty products is not the answear. Also, if you don’t see tan lines on your skin that doesn’t mean that the sun is avoiding you.
Ok, so maybe you think you’re being careful and you don’t expose yourself to direct sunlight, but UV light is still pretty strong all year around. Over time, repeated exposure to UVA and UVB rays breaks down the elastin in your skin so you age prematurely because your skin can’t help but succumb to wrinkles and fine lines.
And that’s not all. If the sun doesn’t shine bright, that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Here’s the reality: you’ve got to wear sunscreen every day of the year, come rain or shine. “Ultraviolet rays that are the cause of sun damage and skin cancer are always present,” explains Dr. Shilesh Iyer, M.D., a Board Certified dermatologist with the renown New York Dermatology Group.
so this being said, take care of your skin. It’s the largest organ of your body. Keep it healthy! Inside and out! #vichyromania
