It is officially falling! As temperatures start to fall, and the seasons change, many people forget one very important step of protection before heading outside; wearing sunscreen.
The sun’s harmful rays don’t just stop because it gets cooler outside. You may not feel the warm sun anymore, but that doesn’t mean the rays still aren’t causing serious damage to your skin. It’s still very important to wear sunscreen, especially on your face, every day.
The CDC says that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The good news, the simple act of wearing sunscreen can drastically help reduce your chances of getting skin cancer. Skin cancer is something that runs in my family, and so I’ve been trying to be extra diligent about remembering to put sunscreen on daily. I have a tinted sunscreen that I put on right after my moisturizer, and before I put on my makeup.
It’s funny when you think about it, we spend so much money and time trying to make our skin look good with expensive treatments and lotions, but one of the things that can be the most helpful to your skin in the long run… sunscreen.
So don’t forget to lather up before your step outside this Fall!
