1. Protection from Sunburn
Day Creams with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) have the ability to block the sun’s ultraviolet rays from wreaking havoc on your skin. It is these ultraviolet rays which damage the skin leading to sunburn and in more severe cases, skin cancer. The effects of UV rays can be present at all times of the year and at any part of the day, whether it is sunny or not. Thus, using day creams which incorporate sun protection gives you the best chance of avoiding sun burn and more severe exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
Recent studies in the Medical Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology have shown that UV rays are the most powerful force behind skin aging. In fact, UV rays account for a colossal 80% of skin ageing. This skin ageing comes to fruition through long-term UV exposure, which leads to pigmentation, reduced skin elasticity and degradation of the skin texture. Furthermore, a mere 2% increase in skin damage from UV exposure ages the face by 3 years. By using a day cream with SPF, you are not only avoiding sun burn but you are also inadvertently avoiding damage which can lead to ageing. Instead of searching for magic in a bottle to prevent ageing, look at the statistics; and help protect yourself from the most powerful cause of skin ageing.
3. Daily Routine
The use of day creams is an essential part of many skin care routines. By replacing a regular day cream with one that has SPF, you are likely to increase the consistency and reliability of your sun protection regime. By placing sun protection within your daily skin care routine, you ensure everyday protection from the sun, giving your skin a great chance to avoid sun damage and effects of ageing.
