What Happens When You Don’t Use Sunscreen
It is easy to believe that you can safely get away without having to put on sunscreen when there are some lucky people who do not suffer sunburns even after being outside for the whole day without wearing sunblock.
Most mistakenly tend to associate skin damage from the sun with only sunburns. Sunlight contains harmful UVB and UVA rays, these rays cause serious skin problems if you expose your skin for prolonged periods to the sun. Your skin is never safe while unprotected, even on a cloudy day or when indoors.
Effects Of Not Using Sunscreen
When you do not use sunscreen when going out into the sun, you make yourself vulnerable to many risks. These are some skin-related risks, and everyone is vulnerable to them, despite your skin type and color.
Long periods of continued exposure to the sun without use of sunscreen increases your risks of developing skin cancer, gives rise to premature skin aging, causes skin discolorations, and makes your skin an easy victim of the harmful rays.
As the ozone layer keeps depleting, UVA and UVB rays keep intensifying, becoming more and more harmful for our skin. Thus, when you are exposed to the suns rays, sunscreen serves as a vital protective shield.
Skin Conditions You Can Develop In The Absence Of Sunscreen
1. Age Spots
You may suffer from extra pigmentation when you overexpose yourself to the sun without applying Sunscreen. The medical terms for increased pigmentation are solar lentigines or liver spots. These grey or brown spots appear like large freckles on your skin.
Solar lentigines can appear in different places and of different sizes. You will notice them on areas where you receive the sun rays the most, such as your arms, hands, face, and neck. This skin condition is generally surface deep and not painful, but they do mar your complexion and perfect skin when you give it too much sun.
Wrinkles are never a pretty sight, and you may think they relate naturally with signs of aging. The truth is that roughly 90 percent of skin aging is due to UV rays. UVA rays are powerful enough to pierce through your skin and break down the proteins, elastin and collagen present, which are the main components of flexibility, firmness and structure of your skin.
When you do not wear Sunscreen regularly, your skin continues to loosen, this results in more wrinkles forming on your face over time.
3. Sagging Neck
The skin around your neck is just as sensitive as the skin on your face to sunlight. Therefore, you may notice the skin around your neck sagging earlier than it should naturally appear when you don't use SPF regularly. A sagging neck is a natural part of aging, but it can become worse from overexposure to the sun.
Again, the elastin and collagen present in your neck's skin can loosen as the UV rays break them bit by bit with each exposure. Therefore, when the elements that keep your chin and neck skin firm loosen, your skin begins to sag.
When there is overexposure to the sun, you begin to notice a turkey neck appearing where your skin feels loose and saggy.
4. Premature Aging
Premature aging comes from overexposure to the sun. This natural process happens when your age advances. However, premature aging occurs as a faster rate when you do not regularly wear sunscreen, letting the elastin and collagen in your skin loosen with each penetration of the harmful UV rays.
5. Brown-Red Patches
Actinic keratosis is another scaly condition that may occur on your skin from overexposure to the sun without sunscreen.In this condition, you will note brown-red patches on your skin with a scaly texture. They will feel rough and dry and may sometime even look like scabs.
This is another potentially dangerous skin condition as if they are left untreated, they may progress into a type of skin cancer - squamous cell carcinoma.
Many people may be diligently using sunscreen, but we often overlook one area: our lips. You may not be aware of this fact, but overexposure to the sun can cause actinic cheilitis. In this condition, you may experience scaly, chapped, and dry lips, mostly in your lower lip.
At times, this condition may even lead to a form of skin cancer if one neglects it for too long. It is best to see a dermatologist for this condition.
There is no overstating the importance of using sunscreen regularly especially in today’s environment. Whenever you expose your skin to the sun, you leave it vulnerable to several potential skin conditions that the harmful UVA rays can cause.
A broad-spectrum sunscreen is the best means of securing your skin from all potential damage, and it is best to make its application a daily habit. Sunscreen may be unpopular as some leave a sticky uncomfortable feeling on the skin.
However there are sunscreens today which does not leave that sticky feel. At the end of the day, sunscreen use should not be compromised for any reason as the harm from the sun rays is serious. And even when sunscreen is worn, it is best to avoid the sun. If heading out, you may choose to wear a hat or carry an umbrella for added sun protection.

"Enriched with natural active ingredients like Vitamin C, this small but mighty Day Glower even doubles up as a makeup primer, a single application imparts a nice brightening glow! Perfect so I can skip all the other products especially when I’m in a hurry but would like to have sun protection (a definite YES!)
I also need to mention how much I love the Auolive’s Airless Pump Bottle technology which prevents ingredients from exposure to air (thus decreasing effectiveness) and it’s also child-proof(ding ding ding!) coz my kids tried to open it but failed! No mess, no wastage! It’s leak-proof too! So great for travel…Glides on like a dream I must say, easily absorbed in skin with no sticky after feel. All in all I find this a really handy skincare product and I love the added sunscreen protection and natural glow that it gives, without the need for makeup as it evens out my skin tone. (See Before/After pics below) The Day Glower left my skin feeling soft and it has a slight mattifying effect without making my complexion feeling greasy like some other day creams." - Elaine
You should be able to simplify your skincare routine and use just a few items that allow you to look your best! For the modern woman, going through the Korean 10 step regimen daily, which takes hours to do just isn’t realistic if you have a job!
Our founder, Claire, had this exact problem. She was knee-deep in the corporate world and described at best as “haggard-looking” by her friends after a stint of long nights at the office.
And she wasn’t alone, she found that there were plenty of working women who had the exact same problem! Constant Late Nights and early mornings had started to literally show on their faces.
So after 2 years of R&D with a laboratory in Switzerland, she created Auolive, a brand that uses natural active ingredients in all its multi-functional products for the best possible results for you!
