One of the easiest things you can do this year is to begin a sunscreen regimen if you are not already doing so. It is never too late to begin using sun protection on a daily basis and this is especially true due to our location and climate. Brevard County boasts incredible opportunities for active outdoor lifestyles but keeping safe while experiencing our great locale means using protection against harmful UV rays.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, 1 out of every 5 individuals will experience a skin cancer of some type. According to their website, about ninety-percent of these cases are due to the amount and intensity of UV rays one receives. However, you can protect yourself from damaging UV rays by using protective measures such as sunscreen.
There are many types and brands of sunscreen to choose from, so if you have experienced heavy creams that cause breakouts and are just plain uncomfortable for you, fear not, you have many choices. Patients who have acne, rosacea, and skin allergies should choose sunscreens free from PABA and oxybenzone. Acne patients can choose from gel sunscreens containing alcohol which are less greasy and less likely to cause breakouts while patients with allergies and rosacea should not use sunscreens with alcohol as an ingredient as it can aggravate their conditions. A cream sunscreen with more natural ingredients would be a wiser choice. Those who have skin on the drier side will benefit from a cream sunscreen as well.
No matter your skin type or age, there is a protective sunscreen that will work for you. The most important thing is to find a product that works well for your skin type and use it every single day. Are you suffering from the effects of prior sun damage currently and are looking for a way to rid your skin of dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles? If so, contact Fountain of You today and let us help you turn back time. We would love to answer any questions you may have so feel free to contact our knowledgeable staff. We look forward to serving you.
