  • How Sunscreen Can Help You Look Younger

    You know that sunscreen is important for preventing painful sunburns and life-threatening skin cancer, but you may not realize that wearing sunscreen every day can also have cosmetic benefits. Watch this video to find out how sunscreen can help keep your skin looking vibrant and youthful. 

    The UV rays in sunlight cause the collagen and elastin in the skin to break down more rapidly, resulting in skin with a lower elasticity that will begin to fold into lines and wrinkles. By wearing sunscreen every day—even when it is cloudy outside—you can help to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. 

    If you want to find out more about the best ways to care for your skin, schedule an appointment with Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology in Salt Lake City. We can provide anti-aging skin treatments to help you look and feel your best. Contact us at (801) 266-8841 for more information.
