Even DJs Think About Sunscreen

We love it when we unexpectedly hear other people talking about the importance of wearing sunscreen. This week’s talk about sunscreen came from none other than superstar DJ Kaskade. Yes, we were pleasantly surprised when we saw him tweeting about sunblock.

Kaskade Wants to Use Sunblock to Protect His Skin

Here’s what he said on Twitter:

Well I’m glad he’s thinking about using sunscreen! And I do find it entertaining how he equates his skin turning into a leathery wallet one day with not wearing sunscreen.

All kidding aside, wearing sunscreen helps prevent things such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and skin cancer. It’s the best anti-aging weapon for your skin. Why?

Because according to the Skin Cancer Foundation:

“Wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation are inevitable skin woes that often appear as we age. While we like to place blame on getting another year older, the main culprit is photoaging — damage to the skin caused by exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet (UV) light.”

Wear Sunscreen Year-Round

I do hope that Kaskade practices what he preaches and ends up using sunscreen every day. It’s just as important to wear it in January as it is in July.

That’s because the sun is out year-round. UVA rays are present all year. UVA rays can cause skin damage, skin cancer, and skin aging.

Also think about this stat from the US Food & Drug Administration: “even on an overcast day, up to 80 percent of the sun’s UV rays can get through the clouds”. So you can get sun exposure and damage on cloudy days even when you don’t think there’s much sun out, like on winter days.

Suncare Smarts

In any event, I’m all about this tweet for Kaskade. It’s always helps when folks with a large platform spread a little suncare love.
