11 Moisturizers With High SPF You Need This Summer, Because Your Skin Will Thank You Later
Hopefully by now, we all are aware of the damage the sun can cause to our skin. Worshipping the sun can cause discoloration, aging, and wrinkles at best, and at worst, going out with SPF can increase your risk of cancer. This summer, stock up on the best moisturizers with high SPF.
While we do need the biggest benefit of sunlight - Vitamin D - we need to protect our skin more. As skin care education has increased and tanning bed usage has decreased (or even been outlawed in some cases) the fact still remains: Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the number one cause of skin cancer. You should be wearing sunscreen daily, no matter your activity level or location.
According to Skincancer.org, An estimated 73,870 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the US in 2015. Melanoma is often thought of as a young person’s disease, since melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for young people 15-29 years old. Bottom line: you need to take skin care and sun protection seriously.
Most foundations and moisturizers are made with low-level SPF that will often wear or sweat off within a couple hours. We rounded up the most high-impact, easy wearing, and multi-tasking moisturizers on the market.
