Your skin is the biggest organ in your body and is prone to getting damaged by the sun if you don’t protect it from the UV rays. Starting from early childhood, sun damage builds up and it can take years even decades for the true extent of the damage to show. This is why wearing sun protection like rashies is so important from childhood to adulthood.
It has also been proven that the sun damage contributes to around 90% of wrinkles, ageing and skin cancers. Pretty scary facts when you look at them closely!
Even if you haven’t been protecting yourself from the sun, you can start now which can help you reduce the probability of skin cancers and premature aging. A big concern out there is that most people think that sunscreen is all the sun protection that you need. This isn’t the case as sunscreen will not protect you fully against these harmful rays. Wearing a UPF50+ rashie with a hat and sunglasses along with sunscreen is the best way to know that you are fully protected.
