You've heard it time and time again.. Maybe you've even recommended it.
"You should be wearing SPF every day!" "The #1 anti-aging product is SPF"
"If you aren't using daily SPF, your skin care isn't working as effectively."
Ok.. but why?
There are more ways to be exposed to harsh UV rays and environmental elements than spending the day at the pool or hiking, or at a baseball game. The following daily activities are ways we often overlook as potential for sun damage accumulation.
You may not work directly in the sun but if you work near a window, which allows access to UV rays.
If you have a longer commute or you travel for work, you are consistently being exposed to the sun. Your face, your neck + chest, even your hands!
Walking your dog, golfing, outdoor activity.
Being outside for longer than 5-10 minutes is enough to cause sun damage. Even is the sun is not shining, because the sun exists above us, the rays are penetrating through to our skin.
