Reasons to wear SPF Every Day

Why You Should Wear SPF Every Day

By | Skincare | No Comments

If there’s one anti-ageing tip you should follow religiously, it should be wearing sunscreen every single day. Although sunny vacations may be nice and a trip to the tropics might have you feeling free, it’s important not to forget the dangers of sun damage that can really wreak havoc on your skin and health.

Even on days where there isn’t much visible sun in the sky, it’s still extremely important to make sunscreen a part of your routine and use it daily. 80% of the sun’s rays can pass through even the thickest of clouds, meaning that you may be exposing yourself to the sun when you don’t even expect it.

At Clearview MediSpa, we take skin care seriously and have no shortage of skincare hacks and treatments. If you’re not already convinced, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why you need to start wearing sunscreen every day. After all, better safe than sorry!

Reduce your Risk of Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is a common and prevalent form of cancer in North America. By using sunscreen on your skin daily, you can significantly reduce your risk. Ultimately, this means that sunscreen can improve your quality of life and actually help you live longer and healthier. Skin cancer can be fatal, so do you really want to take that risk?

Adding sunscreen to your daily routine shouldn’t be difficult. You can even mix it in with your foundation or find a nice moisturizing formula to wear underneath your makeup.

Nowadays, with many different sunscreen formulas on the market, it’s never been easier to find something that fits with your skin type and doesn’t leave your skin greasy or with an odd undertone.

In fact, many sunscreens are now formulated with other great skin-smoothing ingredients to leave skin brighter and healthier.

Prevent Skin Sagging and Premature Aging

Sun damage is known to cause wrinkles, sagging and discoloration of the skin. Severely sun-damaged skin is usually leathery in texture and riddled with sunspots.

Since prevention is key, you must wear sunscreen if anti-ageing is important to you, and you want to keep your skin smooth and youthful for as long as possible.

When it comes to skincare and the use of sunscreen, age is not a factor. In fact, the younger you are when you start using sunscreen, the better off your skin will be in the long-run.

Protect your Skin from Harmful Rays

UV rays from the sun are both harmful and abundant. UV is what causes sunburn and the awful pain and peeling that comes with it. While you might laugh off a little sunburn or just think of it as a small nuisance, it really is a sign that your skin cells have been damaged by the sun.

Not only do UV rays cause damage to the skin, but they can suppress the immune system and damage the eyes. This is why wearing sunglasses out in the sun is also important as sunlight exposure can cause vision problems and cataracts.

In order to protect your skin from these harmful rays, use products with an SPF of 30 or higher every day on your face and body as UV rays can even get through clothing.

Keep a Healthy Glow and Complexion

If you want to stay beautiful and glowing throughout your later years, sunscreen is the beauty product you can rely on. Sun damage to the skin can reduce collagen levels, resulting in lifeless and dull-looking skin.

Don’t let yourself be a victim to the sun’s harmful rays. It may not show up now, but you will see the effects of sun damage most prominently years down the road. So, if you want to age gracefully and be glowing at any age- use sunscreen daily!

Other Methods of Sun Protection

When protecting your skin from the sun, sunscreen isn’t the only method you should rely on; hats and cover-ups can provide some protection as well. Sunglasses are also great for protecting the eyes. Look for sunglasses that block out 100% of UV rays and are polarized to help protect from glare.

When considering sun safety and protection, also think of using extra clothing and layers in the sun. Many people even use umbrellas as protection under the sun. While some sun on the skin does feel good, try to stay mostly in shady areas and avoid the sun when possible.

If you do end up getting too much sun in a day, make sure to moisturize your skin and use aloe vera so that your skin stays supple and doesn’t dry out.

Relax in the Sun Without Worry

Wearing sunscreen every day means that you don’t have to worry so much when you’re outdoors and enjoying nature. For many people that have a passion for sports and outdoor activities, sun exposure can be an inevitable part of their lives.

Even if you enjoy travelling and warm weather, you shouldn’t have to be afraid of the sun and stepping outside. With proper sunscreen use, you can relax, knowing that you are going outdoors with the proper protection.

So, go ahead and take a dip in that pool or get your gardening gloves out! Just remember to reapply your sunscreen every 2 hours or right after you take a cool swim as sunscreen isn’t typically waterproof.

Ultimately, whether you plan on laying out on a beach sometime soon or you are just concerned with sun safety, it’s time to start whipping out the sunscreen. Remember to be vigilant when you are outside, regardless of the weather conditions.

Even if you think you are safe indoors, being near windows means incidental sun exposure. The sun is the center of our solar system, so it’s extremely hard not to encounter it in some way or another!

We believe in the amazing results of this advanced wrinkle treatment and will be happy to offer a complimentary session to any new or returning customers with no purchase necessary.

Read on to discover how Forma skin tightening really works and whether or not it is right for you and your skin concerns.

The Benefits of Forma

Since Forma is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment to lift the face and the neck, this means that crow’s feet, under-eye bags, forehead wrinkles and lines on the neck can all be improved. If you are hoping to improve your skin texture and enjoy smoother skin, Forma is a great choice.

Forma can also be used to treat sun damage, deep wrinkles and even sagging skin due to weight loss. It is safe for all skin types and ages. The treatment contracts the skin and stimulates the production of collagen for an improved, revitalized look that only gets better with time and repeated treatments to maintain your results.

Is Forma right for me?

If you are bothered by your skin’s laxity, Forma Skin Tightening Treatment can be right for you. It is generally best for those with mild to moderate skin looseness on the face and neck who don’t want to go under the knife for treatment.

Depending on the depth of wrinkles and severity of skin laxity, it may take more time and more treatments to reach your optimal results. As Forma is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure, there is no downtime, and it is safe for most people and all skin types.

Your Forma Consultation

If you still aren’t sure if Forma is the right treatment for you, our team of specialists would be happy to offer a complimentary consultation to assess your skin and individual concerns. If there are specific areas that are a problem for you, we can pinpoint these areas during treatment to make sure your session is maximized.

If there is a better treatment that would suit your needs, we can suggest this to you alternatively. This way, you can rest assured that you are getting the best treatment for your skin type and needs.

How does Forma work?

Essentially, Forma uses both radiofrequency energy and heat to contract and lift the problem areas of the skin, stimulating greater collagen production and improving the look of sagging skin and wrinkles. Loose skin is targeted as tightening is one of the main goals of this treatment.

Side Effects of Forma

As mentioned, one advantage of Forma is that it is a treatment with absolutely no downtime. That means you can have the treatment during your lunch break and go back to work without any troubles or issues.

As with any other procedure, you will be given some general steps for aftercare. If you are pregnant or have any medical condition, it would be wise to discuss the treatment with your doctor beforehand to avoid any potential side effects, though there are rarely any.

Results can be immediate but may also appear gradually over the first few weeks after your treatment and depending on your skin type and issues; you may need multiple treatments to get your desired results. The treatment is not painful, and the side effects will be minimal.

If firmer, smoother skin is one of your goals this year, then Forma Skin Tightening Treatment is just what you need for softer, suppler skin. Get the results you’ve been looking for and stop wasting time on ineffective treatments that just don’t work for you.
