The benefits of healthy skin care
It’s critical to take proactive steps to prevent skin damage by getting recommended skin screenings and applying proper sunscreens to your skin every day. Why? Because skin protects your internal body and serves as a defense barrier from external environments.
Wearing sunscreen every day with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher helps reduce the risk of melanoma. It also promotes a healthy skin appearance and can help prevent sunspots, premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and a loss of elasticity or bounce of the skin.
It’s a good idea to get an annual skin screening starting in your 20s and 30s, or more frequently if you have a family history of skin cancer.
