There are several things that women in India either shy away from talking or take for granted such as menstrual and vaginal hygiene, sex, and others. One such skin routine that is gaining more and more popularity is using sunscreen while stepping outdoors. While many people consider it as yet another beauty industry sham like the vaginal cleansers, many others strongly advocate the advantages of wearing sunscreen when stepping out in the daylight.
In one of our previous blogs, we highlighted the hazards of sun’s UV rays on the human skin.
In this blog, let's have a look at the positives of wearing sunscreen while stepping out in the bright sunny days.
Diminishes the hazard of skin cancer
Sunscreen comes with SPF in it which protects your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. It shrinks the chances of developing pre-cancers or skin cancer. Using a decent sunscreen enriched with SPF, and wearing other protective gears such as dark coloured sunglasses lessens the effect of sun exposure on your eyes and skin.
Shields against sunburn
There are two types of UV rays – UVA and UVB which are reflected from the sun. While UVA is responsible for long-term skin defects such as wrinkles and a few types of skin cancers, UVB is the one that results in sunburn and is linked to a majority of skin cancers. Sunburns are painful as well as they are directly connected to the deadliest forms of cancer. Thus, wearing sunscreen helps your skin by reflecting, scattering or absorbing sunlight.
Shuns Inflammation and Damage
When you spend a lot of time under the sun it results in redness for the lighter skin tones, and tanning in case of people with darker skin tones. This change in skin colour is because the exposed skin gets damaged after a long exposure to the UV rays, and the body sends in more blood in these areas for repair. Thus, applying sunscreen saves your skin from redness, tanning and inflammation.
Avoids early signs of aging
Around 90% signs of skin aging are caused due to harmful sun rays. Prolonged exposure to the sunrays which means long exposure to UVA prematurely ages your skin, reduces elasticity in the skin and damages the collagen in skin. Fine lines, cow’s feet and wrinkles (signs of aging) are all a result of unrestricted exposure to UVA rays, and the best way to prevent it is to wear sunscreen before letting the sunlight touch your skin. Thus, if you are stepping out for a 5-minute thing near your house or heading to buy a ladies night sexy dress from a store situated 5 kms away from your house, do not step out without wearing sunscreen.
Excessive exposure to sunlight results in decoloring or darkening of the skin in patches which can also be called hyperpigmentation. In some people, hyperpigmentation occurs due to hereditary reasons, while in many others it is due to excessive exposure to sunlight. Thus, in the latter case, hyperpigmentation can be avoided by wearing sunscreen whenever outdoors.Take care of your skin and make sunscreen your best friend for the day as sexy bra panty combo in India are for the night.
