Benefits of Sunscreen: “Why is sunscreen important, you ask?” We have the answer. The benefits of sunscreen go beyond protecting your skin from the sun. Sunscreen not only helps protect your skin from sunburn, but it also helps prevent skin cancer, premature aging, and other damage to the skin caused by too much exposure to the sun. It does not matter whether it is summer or winter; you must protect your skin from sun exposure. Sunscreen is the best defence against sun-related skin damage and should be worn year-round, even on cloudy days. See the video to learn more about the advantages of sunscreen.
