Sunscreen as a Part of Your Skincare Routine

We hear the question all the time, should I or should I not wear daily sunscreen, and the simple answer is yes you should! But let's take a deeper dive into the importance of sunscreen and how you can easily incorporate it into your daily skincare routine.



Importance of Sunscreen

Sunscreen is not just for the times when we are on vacation on hanging at the beach with the cutest swimwear. It's not just for the times when we will be outdoors for an extended period of time. In actuality, you should wear sunscreen every day! According to the Skin Care Foundation, everyone ages 6 months and older should wear sunscreen every day and when used as directed, sunscreen is proven to:

  • Decrease your risk of skin cancers and skin precancers. Regular daily use of SPF 15 sunscreen can reduce your risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) by about 40 percent, and lower your melanoma risk by 50 percent.

  • Help prevent premature skin aging caused by the sun, including wrinkles, sagging, and age spots.

How's that for skincare benefits? And here's a quick note *sunscreen is important whether you have fair skin and get tanned easily or deeply melanated skin that does not, you need sunscreen! Now I digress.


But we also know that wearing sunscreen every day can seem to be a daunting task especially if it is not part of your routine, so we want to help you make it simple.


Wearing Sunscreen Made Easy

Wearing sunscreen daily doesn't need to be hard. Create a routine you can stick with to make it easy. Here are some ideas.

  • If you have already established a skincare routine. You can apply sunscreen after washing and toning your skin and before or after applying your daily serums and moisturizer. Do what works best for you.

  • On the days you wear makeup, apply sunscreen before you apply any face makeup like foundation or concealer. Even if your foundation has SPF you should still apply sunscreen because most times people don't wear enough makeup to reach the labeled SPF levels.

  • If you haven't created a skincare routine, now's a great time to start! Choose natural skin care products from YANY Skin and add your favorite sunscreen, we love Black Girl Sunscreen.

In the end, sunscreen is incredibly important to your skincare regimen. It helps protect you against harmful UV rays that cause wrinkles and skin cancer, making it a vital part of your daily routine. And don't forget to make sure you're wearing it year-round—even in the winter! That's it —no go out an be great with great skin!
