The importance of wearing sunscreen

Best SPF moisturizer for men

Tough love coming your way.

If wrinkles or, worse yet, skin cancer is of any concern to you, you should be—scratch that—need to be wearing sunscreen every day.

Not at a beach bum? Doesn’t matter. 

Spend most of your time indoors? Doesn’t matter. 

Reading this in the dead of winter (or on lockdown during a pandemic)? You guessed it—doesn't matter. Here’s why. 

90 percent of wrinkles and skin cancers are caused by the sun’s UV rays. You read that right—90 percent.

There are two types of UV rays, UVA and UVB. An easy way to remember them is that UVA rays cause signs of aging ("A" for aging) and UVB rays cause burning ("B" for burning). Both cause skin cancer.

Sure, like the rest of the world you're likely spending most of your time inside. But sun damage is cumulative—even if you only spend a little time outside each day it will add up to a lot of damage over time. Also, while that window by your new at-home office set-up does a good job blocking UVB rays, it isn't protecting you from wrinkle-causing UVA rays.

But here’s the good news. You don’t have to drench yourself in Banana Boat before heading to your virtual meeting. A good daily moisturizer enhanced with SPF can block up to 97% of damaging UV rays. 

There are so many different varieties and formulations to choose from, our Skincare Experts will find the best one for you.

    The headline says it all. Windows don’t block UV rays and UV rays aren’t weaker in the winter.
