Defend Your Glow: SPF’s Critical Role in Skincare

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, a critical time to discuss the importance of sunscreen as a non-negotiable pillar in your skincare regimen. Beyond its role in preventing painful sunburns, sunscreen is your first defense against the more severe consequences of sun exposure, including skin cancer and premature aging.

The sun emits harmful UV rays—UVA and UVB—which not only contribute to skin cancer but also accelerate signs of aging such as wrinkles and sunspots. UVA rays, often referred to as the aging rays, penetrate deep into the skin and damage its underlying structure, while UVB rays are the primary cause of sunburn. This dual threat makes it imperative to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which shields against both types of rays.

Incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine, regardless of the weather or season, ensures continuous protection. At Youtherapy, we recommend using a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, which blocks about 97% of UVB rays. However, more than just slapping it on in the morning, reapplication every two hours is crucial, especially during extended times of outdoor activity.
As we observe Skin Cancer Awareness Month, remember that defending your skin’s health is as vital as enhancing its beauty. At Youtherapy Medspa, located in Manhattan, Scarsdale, and Chappaqua, we understand the critical role sunscreen plays in maintaining your skin’s glow and health. We offer a wide range of high-quality sunscreens suitable for various skin types and concerns. Visit any of our locations for a free consultation with one of our skin specialists, who can help tailor a sun protection plan that works best for you. Defend your glow, protect your health, and step confidently into the sun with the right defense.
