Protect Your Skin From Sun Damage

At Cherry Bend, our whole practice revolves around supporting people on their journey to healthier skin. That’s why we’ll never tire of touting the benefits of sunscreen when it comes to protecting your skin from sun damage. If you’ve dialed in your home skincare routine and are investing in additional medical spa treatments but still aren’t wearing sunscreen…this article is for you. Many people find it hard to incorporate regular SPF use into their daily habits, but we implore you to try harder. It’s not only the best way to prevent serious conditions like skin cancer, but also to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful for longer.

What Is Sun Damage?

Sun damage is also called photoaging. We wish more people understood the role that too much sun exposure plays in both damaging AND aging the skin. In the short term, you might experience a sunburn. But long-term consequences begin beneath the skin’s surface and often show up years down the road. The UV (ultra-violet) light from the sun’s rays affects our DNA at the cellular level, which means changes can take a while to develop. Over time, you’ll notice brown spots, freckles, and eventually wrinkles and poor skin texture. In some cases, discoloration actually turns out to be pre-cancerous or cancerous. Overall, sun damage is the #1 cause of premature aging and more than 90% of skin cancers. It’s something you definitely want to take seriously!

It’s Easy To Prevent This Kind Of Damage

There are plenty of hazards in life that aren’t easily avoided, but sun damage isn’t one of them. By using sunscreen or SPF-containing products and moderating your time in the sun, you can play an active role in keeping your skin healthy for the long term. What’s more, we offer everything you need right here at Cherry Bend.
