AVOID THE SUN, NOT THE FUN!
Preventing sunburn and skin cancer is so simple and easy. Some tips to remember are to:
Apply your sunscreen before you leave the house. It assures you won’t forget later, plus it starts protecting you the minute you go out into the rays.
Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of 15. Reapply every two hours and after you go swimming or have been sweating a lot. Some make-ups or moisturizers contain sunscreen, using them daily can protect your face from pre-mature aging and wrinkles.
Seek shade, especially during 10am to 4pm. These midday hours are the most hazardous for UV exposure.
Find a favorite pair of sunglasses. You’ll look great and they’ll protect the tender skin around your eyes and lower risk of cataracts.
Don a hat. A hat shades your face and protects you from the sun, plus it avoids the need to spend a lot of time styling your hair.
Enjoy the sun and seek shelter in the shade to balance out your outdoor enjoyment!
