Sunscreen season is here!
Let’s get right to the point- sunscreen is important for protecting your skin. No matter what skincare regimen you may have, sunscreen is the most essential part of it. There are a few reasons why this is true. The most obvious reason people think to use sunscreen is because they want to protect their skin from sunburns. Further, this protection from sunburns decreases chances of developing skin cancers in Houston TX, such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Another added benefit to sunscreen is anti-aging. In fact, sunscreen prevents UV rays from degrading our collagen, keratin, and elastin. These proteins are vital for skin texture and appearance.
