Sunscreen is one of the most important elements of a skin care routine and it can protect your skin from dangerous UV rays from the sun. You should find a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30 and apply it frequently.
If you do not wear sunscreen, you are leaving your skin susceptible to UVA and UVB rays that could cause sunburns, premature wrinkles, and might even lead to skin cancer. If you spend a lot of time in the water, buy a water-resistant sunscreen to protect yourself from these rays so you can enjoy time in the sun without damaging your skin.
