Daily sunscreen use prevents signs of skin aging!

June 04th, 2013 | Category: Cosmetic,Skin Cancer

 

This isn’t anything new. Dermatologists have known about this for a while. But now we have great evidence to support it. So not only is safe sun practice important to prevent skin cancer, it also makes you look better!

This study followed 903 subjects (huge number!) over 4 years (long time!). Researchers examined the following criteria of photoaging:

  • coarser and loose skin
  • increased wrinkling and dryness
  • elevated visible small blood vessels
  • whiteheads and blackheads on the face

Subjects that used sunscreen, had 24% less aging of the skin! Those that used sunscreen daily had the best outcome.

This is exactly why I recommend daily sunscreen use with SPF of 30 or higher.
