Wearing a sunscreen every day regardless of where you live is the single most important thing you can do to help prevent the signs of aging. Ask any dermatologist.
Over time, repeated exposure to UVA and UVB rays breaks down the elastin in your skin (the stuff that keeps it plump) so you age prematurely because your skin can’t help but succumb to wrinkles and fine lines.
I won't bore you with all the science but trust me, I can write a more detailed blog if you like, let me know. At the moment in Ireland, we are enjoying beautiful weather and many people are planning their summer holidays. So if you don't usually wear sunscreen especially on your face now is a great time to get into the habit.
I use sunscreen instead of moisturiser in the morning. It's a good idea to put it on first thing in the morning and again before putting on your makeup, don't be mean with the sunscreen, the more the better.
I don't want to scare you but skin cancer is the number one cancer in Ireland and the world (www.cancer.ie)
