The use of sunscreen is essential to prevent premature aging and skin cancer. Sun exposure is the main cause of premature skin aging, as the sun’s UV rays damage skin cells and destroy collagen and elastin, resulting in wrinkles, blemishes, and sagging. In addition, unprotected sun exposure increases the risk of developing skin cancer.

Sunscreen helps protect the skin from the sun’s UV rays by applying a protective layer to the skin. It is important to choose a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF), since the higher the SPF, the greater the protection against UV rays. Experts recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. It’s also important to apply sunscreen properly, covering all exposed areas of the body and reapplying every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating.

In addition to protecting the skin from UV rays, daily use of sunscreen can also help reduce the risk of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, and unprotected sun exposure is one of the main causes of its development. By using a sunscreen consistently, the risk of developing skin cancer is significantly reduced.

In summary, the daily use of sunscreen is essential to prevent premature aging and skin cancer. It is important to choose a sunscreen with a high SPF and apply it properly and consistently. Also, it’s important to remember that sunscreen is only one part of a complete skin care routine, and it’s important to eat a balanced diet, get enough sleep, and avoid excessive sun exposure to maintain healthy skin.

NCDHHS Announces New Online Bed Registry

Hundreds of people in North Carolina each day are waiting inside hospital emergency departments for behavioral health care. One reason is that a real-time list of operational beds isn’t available, which makes it difficult to connect people in emergency departments to care in more appropriate settings. To address the growing behavioral health crisis, the NC Department of Health and Human Services is today launching a new tool to help hospitals and other providers quickly find an open bed where people can get the behavioral health treatment they deserve.
