Many people have this misconception that sunscreen is essential only in the summer months. However, on the contrary, sunscreen is necessary year-round. There are many ways to benefit by wearing a sun defense cream and keeping your skin healthy and protected.
At CIEL, our main aim is to help you achieve and maintain clear and glowing skin. Skincare is a crucial part of everyone’s daily routine and should always include sun protection. Here are some of the many reasons you should use sunscreen for your face and body every day:
1. Prevent sunburn
The UVB rays, also known as the burning rays, are known to cause sunburn. While these rays are more severe in the summer, they are still prevalent in winters. Unexpectedly, the sun is closer to the earth during the winter months, making your chances of sunburn higher.
2. Reduce the risk of skin cancer
Another major reason dermatologists and skincare enthusiasts worldwide recommend wearing sunscreen throughout the year is an increased risk of skin cancer. The ultraviolet B rays of the sun are closely linked to skin cancer. As mentioned before, UVB rays are stronger in winters and can harm your skin. Applying good quality sunscreen reduces your risk of getting skin cancer. CIEL Brightening Sunscreen SPF 40, a lightweight, fast-absorbing, non-greasy serum brightens your skin tone while preventing skin problems like tanning and photo-ageing.
3. The ozone layer is thinner in winters
The stratosphere consists of protective gases surrounding the planet. The ozone layer is near the top of the stratosphere that absorbs the UV rays from the sun. Ozone production increases quickly in warm temperatures and slowly in colder months. As a result, the ozone layer gets thinner at the earth’s poles, where the temperatures are low, and the coverage is thinnest everywhere else around the globe. Even though the sun doesn’t feel as hot, you are still exposed to high-intensity UV rays.
4. Keep your skin looking young and healthy
The UVA/B rays of the sun are known to encourage skin ageing and reduce natural collagen production. They also reduce the elastin of your skin preventing it from looking healthy and youthful. On the other hand, sunscreens protect your skin from harmful sun rays and add moisture to dry skin.
CIEL Cooling Sunblock SPF 50 is a broad spectrum SPF that provides UVA/UVB protection. It is packed with powerful antioxidants like avocado, olive oil, kiwi, licorice root that protect your skin from free radical damage, slow down the ageing process and keep your skin looking youthful.
5. Indoor lights are damaging
Even if you don’t go outdoors, your skin is still affected by the lights of computers, cellphone screens, televisions and other types of indoor lighting. Regularly applying a sun defense cream can protect your skin from damage caused by light exposure.
