6 Very Good Reasons For Wearing Sunscreen Every Day

Hey Lovelies!

Are you one of those people who rushes out to buy some sunscreen the moment the summer season commences? If so, it’s time to change. Your skin will thank you for it later on in life. Sunscreen provides that vital protection your skin needs throughout the year. Here are 6 reasons sunscreen should be a part of your daily skincare routine.

1.UV Rays

Many people believe (like I used to) that the sun is only harmful during summer months. So wrong! In fact, the sun’s rays are just as harmful in spring as they are in the middle of August.

2.Prohibits Skin Cancer

With 50% of all people set to encounter the C word (in some form or another) by 2020, there has never been a better reason to rush out and equip yourself with some SPF. There are a variety of skin cancers waiting to pounce – so don’t give them the chance.

3.Prevents Premature Skin Aging

Okay, so this is a puppy which reflects the opposite of aging. However, it’s too cute not to include and has wrinkly skin, so it kind of demonstrates my point. Think of sun cream as your secret weapon in the fight against those dreaded lines and wrinkles. Wearing it every day will stave off the years from mapping themselves across your face too soon.

4.Discoloration

If you want to avoid a face full of discoloration and dark spots (HELL, yeah) then sunscreen is imperative.

5.Blotchiness, Red Veins – No Thanks

The same can be said for preventing the onset of unwanted blotches that never seem to go, like – ever, and red veins that without the help of some expensive laser treatment will definitely never go. It’s far easier to slap a bit of sunscreen on your face.

6.Sun Burn

Granted, this is the UK – but miracles can happen. And with the population biting chunks out of the ozone layer like it’s a Michelin-starred chef’s signature chocolate desert, sun burn is ever-more likely.

In short people, wear your sunscreen. Like, every day people.

Why The Hell Is My Hair Falling Out? Common And Uncommon Reasons

It was 6 weeks ago, following a bath when I experienced the horror of my hair falling out – since then, my hair has continually fallen out, to the point where I have lost 50% of my locks. A few months ago, I had long hair; now it is cut into a short bob in an effort to minimize the embarrassment factor and stimulate new growth.

Your hair loss can be triggered 3 months after the underlying cause occurred. For me, the evil culprit was a hair dye. However, for many women, the cause remains an evil mystery.

Should this story sound familiar, do not despair. Simply play detective and find out the (ahem, root cause). The majority of hair loss cases can be rectified. Tackle this problem head on by taking a look at some common and uncommon possible reasons.

1.Stress

A little stress is healthy, but a constant stress headache can trigger an array of problems, including hair loss. Solve the problem causing you stress (if it happens to be man-related, bin the boyfriend). Do whatever you need to in order to get happy and stress-free once more. Nothing is worth losing your hair over!

2.Hormones

Pregnancy, the menopause, the pill and hormonal imbalances can all trigger hair loss. If you think this may be the issue, visit the doctor asap.

3.Lack of Protein

A lack of protein (fish, eggs, cheese) can result in hair loss. Luckily, as with stress and hormones, this reason is often one from which you can recover. Change your diet and after a few months you should notice a change.

4.Male and Female-Pattern Baldness

Unfortunately, this may be the reason for your hair loss, particularly if it runs in the family. The good news is that there are options available. Visit a trichologist who will point you in the right direction.

5.Hypothyroidism

Hormones are frequently to blame for hair loss, and the case of an underactive thyroid is no different. This disorder disrupts the flow of hormones, thus resulting in hair loss. A doctor will prescribe you with suitable medication which should in turn treat the hair loss.

6.Vitamin Overload

Often, we are so paranoid about getting the right amount of vitamin, that we can actually take too much. An overload of vitamin A can trigger hair loss. Happily, this is easily solved.

7.Vitamin Deficiency

Likewise, too little vitamin B or iron can cause hair loss.

Does anyone else have a similar story? I would love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment below xx
