According to recent studies, less than 15% of the world population uses sunscreen. These stats are quite shocking. But how many people use sunscreen according to the below. Usually, we apply our sunscreen in the morning and then forget about it until the next day.

A Dark Side to the Sun

There is a dark side to the sun.

Both intense sun exposure on your holidays and on tanning beds, as well as overtime long-term sun exposure are known causes of skin cancer. Research has shown that chronic sun exposure is most associated with the development of squamous cell carcinoma, which is one of the most common skin cancers, while both intense and chronic, intermittent exposure are believed to play a role in basal cell carcinoma.

Long-term sun exposure also causes UV-induced skin aging also known as photoageing. Spending too much time in the sun without sunscreen can lead to skin sagging, premature wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (so-called liver spots or age spots) and leathery skin texture.
