Summer has landed, well kind of, at the moment its raining but hopefully we will get some more sunny days in the next couple of weeks! People get so excited about the sun coming out they forget how dangerous it actually is for you, Yes you do need your daily dose of Vitamin D but the sun can cause a lot of damage to your skin and if you have ever gotten burnt while being out in the sun you know it can lead to having a few miserable sleepless days and nights and can also lead to you avoiding all sun related activities for the rest of the sunny days! BUMMER!
Well doing one simple thing can help with all that, help protect you and make sure you don’t miss out on the lovely weather SUNSCREEN, Yep it’s that simple!
Applying Sunscreen can protect you from:
-Harmful UV Rays
-Lowers Skin Cancer Risks
-Protects against Sunburn
-Protects against Premature aging
Remember the higher the SPF (Sun protective factor) number the greater amount of protection, 15/20 is usually the most common onepeople use but make sure to get a higher SPF if heading off to a hotter climate and if you plan on spending most of the day in the sun.
Tips on applying Sunscreen:
-Apply sunscreen 20-30minutes before you go outdoors.
-Re-Apply every 3 hours no matter what the bottle says.
-Ladies, Make sure you have an SPF on under your make-up.
-Lather it on, Make sure you cover every bit of body that’s going to be exposed to the sun.
Sunscreen helps protect against sun but make sure to take extra care when in the sun, take a break get in the shade, wear a hat, Don’t over expose yourself to the sun.
If you are that desperate for a tan – Get it from a bottle! 😉
