SPF – Sun Protection Factor is very important not just in the summer but all year around. Here are 6 Reasons why SPF Should be Your BFF This Summer! 

Just because you are wearing a SPF does not mean it will last the entire day. SPF last for about 80 minutes; you should reapply to avoid sunburn.

Melanoma is on the rise with women 40 and over as well as women of color. SPF helps to decrease the chances of getting skin cancer. Brown girls burn too and SPF will prevent your skin from burning in the sun.

Without the use of SPF dark spots caused by breakouts or hyperpigmentation on the skin will get darker in the sun.

SPF is a great way to help prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It slows down pre-mature aging that can be caused by the sun

It’s important to apply SPF on kids to prevent future damage to the skin. According to the melanoma foundation, “80% of lifetime sun damage occurs during childhood years.”

Both UVA – Aging and UVB – Burning rays can cause skin cancer. Be sure to use SPF and wear protective clothing when you are out in the sun. Hats, sunglasses and dark clothing will aide in protecting your skin.

The sun is beautiful, warm and also dangerous. To avoid the danger of the sun, make a promise to yourself and your skin this summer and include SPF, your new BFF in your daily skin routine!
