Why do I need sunscreen?
To protect your face from premature aging
90% of the signs of aging—wrinkles, age spots, uneven pigmentation—are caused by sun damage.
To protect yourself from skin cancer
UV exposure is the primary cause of skin cancer; 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer over a lifetime. In the U.S., 1 person dies of melanoma every hour.
To prevent sunburn
It only takes 1 severe sunburn as a child to double the risk of developing skin cancer as an adult.
