Why we need sun protection EVERY day

One of my clients shared this story with me several years ago and I share it with all of my clients who, when I ask if they are wearing sun protection everyday, answer with….”well, when I’m out in the sun” or “I don’t sun bathe”, or “I’m not outside that often”, etc, etc.   This is a perfect example of incidental sun damage accumulated over thirty years, and is a great demonstration of why we need to be wearing protection everyday.
