Summer is approaching which means soaking up all that vitamin D your skin has been missing. But when your skin has been out of the sun, sudden exposure can cause damage and prolonged exposure can lead to sunburn, age spots, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Here are a few ways you can protect your skin from harsh UV rays this summer.
Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher.
This one seems like a no brainer but you’d be surprised how many people skip it. Especially during the summer months when the sun is closer to the earth and you spend more time outside, it’s important to wear sunscreen and reapply every 80 minutes, particularly on sensitive areas like your face, neck, and chest. If the skin on your face is prone to acne and clogged pores, try a sunscreen specifically formulated for the face.
Limit sun exposure during peak hours
UV rays are the harshest between 10 am and 2 pm. The sun is directly overhead and has less atmosphere to travel through which means you burn easier and faster. If you are going to be out at midday, try and limit sun exposure with hats, umbrellas, sunscreen, and sunglasses.
If you do get sun damage, take care of your skin
Sunburns happen and our skin has an amazing ability to repair itself. Help your skin along by using a lotion or ointment that will help your skin retain moisture and help stop itching, redness, and dry skin. Our After Sun Nutrient Cream contains Capuacu Butter which helps skin retain moisture better than lanolin or Shea butter.
