Even on cloudy days, our skin is susceptible to the sun's rays which can lead to skin cancer.

We've all heard how important it is to use sunscreen to ensure skin health but do you know what are the specific reasons?

5 Reason why you need Sunscreen | Natural Mum

Our skin works to protect us from harmful ultraviolet radiation, which is why we should use sunscreen against harmful UV rays.

Even on cloudy days, our skin is susceptible to the sun's rays which can lead to skin cancer, as well as other diseases and wrinkles over time.

The biggest change you can make to your daily routine to help protect your skin is to apply sunscreen every morning and again throughout the day.

Below, we highlight the importance of using sunscreen daily and how you can take care of your skin all year round, not just in the summer or on vacation.

1. Reduces the risk of sunburn

All dermatology professionals emphasise the importance of protecting the skin and preventing sunburn. If you continually get sunburned, it can cause damage that can lead to skin cancer, premature wrinkles and a variety of other skin problems.

2. Prevents signs of ageing

Repeated sun exposure with little or no protection can cause damage to elastin, collagen and skin cells. Over time, this can lead to premature signs of ageing, including discoloration, wrinkles and fine lines.

Premature ageing, called photoaging, is common in those who spend a lot of time in the sun without sunscreen – especially in their 20s and 30s. Fortunately, these skin problems are preventable with daily use of sunscreen.

3. Reduces the risk of skin cancer

Using sunscreen every day, even when it's cloudy, is one of the best ways to prevent skin cancer. You can lower your risk of developing this disease by using a minimum of SPF 30 several times a day.

Additionally, if you are spending a lot of time outdoors or are in sea water or a pool, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours.

4. Reduces skin inflammation

When our skin is exposed to UV rays, it can cause painful redness and inflammation. This can be especially challenging for individuals with skin conditions like psoriasis or rosacea. Therefore, using sunscreen every day helps prevent inflammation from harmful rays.

If you're prone to redness and have sensitive skin, look for a sunscreen with gentle ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. You should also avoid spray sunscreens as they can contain harsh formulas, including alcohol that can dry out your skin.

5. Hydrates the skin

UV radiation from the sun can dry out your skin and cause premature ageing. Sun damage can also cause wrinkles and fine lines. In other words, using sunscreen daily helps prevent UV radiation from damaging your skin, which keeps it hydrated and soft.
