Updated from 8th June, 2016. As much as I can preach to the choir about the benefits of sunscreen, I can not reap those benefits myself. I am lazy and have a very undisciplined routine in that way. But, I can see the dark spots and blemishes and hyperpigmentation on the skin on my bad days which acts as a constant reminder to why one should apply sunscreen diligently. So, check out the five reasons not to skip this routine.
As much as I love to preach that you should NEVER skip sunscreen, it is one rule I can never follow thoroughly. Either my laziness or the feel when I apply anything on my skin stops me from pursuing the course.
Having said that, I always try to start the routine and maintain it successfully as much as I can. Thus, I know the difference in the skin when you regularly apply sunscreen and when you discontinue it. So, lets see what you lose by not following the number one skin care rule.
5 Reasons Why You Must Apply Sunscreen Everyday
Sun damage is cumulative. The damage an be minimized with proper protection and skin care routine over a period of time but skin never really recovers from the damage already wrought on it. So, beware when you decide to skip the sunscreen next time.
Quality of Skin Changes
You would notice a marked change in the quality of your skin. If you skip sunscreen, your skin becomes a little tough and looses the plumpness which it naturally has and it has nothing to do with lack of hydration. It is something very subtle and indefinable but you feel it when you have alternated in the periods of putting on sunscreen and skipping it.
