The Need for Sunscreen

An old product but an ever growing need is for men to start adopting the use of sunscreen. Forget the mindset that we only need SPF while at the beach. SPF is an anti aging weapon, a level of protection to keep your skin looking healthy and young, while keeping you safe from skin cancer. Skin cancer rates have grown tremendously, with men at an increased risk of developing melanoma.
It’s easy to start. Find a brand that you love. You can even find a moisturizer and sunscreen in one- give yourself hydration and protection at the same time. There are many sunscreens that are formulated specifically for men, leaving behind no evidence that is on our faces. Apply liberally, and all over the body where skin is exposed to the sun. This invisible level of protection will work for you and reduce the risk of melanoma by 50%!
When we interviewed dermatologist, Dr. Patel, about her thoughts on men and sunscreen, she stated, “Men think of sunscreen as an additional chore, when infact is it important to use year round. Adding sunscreen to a daily regime is trivial to keeping skin safe and healthy. An SPF of 30 or higher is recommended to protect us from the sun’s damaging UV rays, but an ideal would be an SPF 50 or higher.” With brands such as SuperGoop!, Neutrogena, and Peter Thomas Roth, there’s something that works for everyone. Do yourself a favor and get on and get protected.
