Daily Sunscreen Use Slows Skin Aging


7047954683_6c08e885d2Sunscreen protects people from getting skin cancer, but new research indicates it can now reduce aging as well.  Are you guilty of forgetting to wear your sunscreen in the summer? Well you should start using sunscreen because it is proven to be more effective in combating aging in the skin.  How do we know if we had a decent amount of sun exposure in the past?

The signs are wrinkles, of course, but also deterioration in texture and an increase in visible blood vessels.  Researchers in sunny Australia used a unique study to measure whether sunscreens really help amid that onslaught.  The research found that even if you’re middle-aged, it is not too late to start rubbing some sunscreen on.  After 4 1/2 years, those who used sunscreen regularly had younger-looking hands, with 24 percent less skin aging than those who used sunscreen only some of the time. Dr. Richard Glogau, clinical professor of dermatology says ” Regular use of sunscreen had an unquestionable protective effect.”

This summer encourage your children to wear sunscreen early exposure can cause skin cancer in the future.
