Why Sunscreen Protection Day Is Important

It’s all about our skin

The skin is the largest organ in the human body and  protects all our internal organs . So taking care of the skin is the ideal way to get the most out of  it.

Importance of sunscreen has increased manifold these days due to global warming risks and the rising temperature all over the world. UV rays pose a serious health risk. Continuous exposure to these invisible rays can cause cataract, cancer and other skin ailments. With the steady depletion of the ozone layer above the earth,  UV rays have become stronger and deadlier than ever before!

How it works

The use of sunscreen will help to protect skin from UV rays. It is  recommended to use sunscreen a Skin Protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. The higher the SPF value, the better will be the protection. Sunscreen should be used  during all outdoor activities, including swimming and whenever  you  go out in the sun.

Interestingly UV rays can cause harm to the skin even when in winter or when it  is cloudy when the sun may not even be visible. Sunscreen is a photoprotective skincare product, which can protect skin from damages caused by sunlight, when applied to areas exposed to light. It was first created in the 1930s by Australian chemist H.A. Milton Blake and its U.V-protection qualities were verified by the University of Adelaide. Sunscreen Protection Day was created to raise awareness of the essential and protective qualities of sunscreen.
