is here and so is the Sun

Sun Protection is a fact of life™

Summer is fast approaching, and with it comes the warm sunshine. While spending time outside is a great way to stay active and enjoy the warmth of the sun, it's important to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Here are a few tips for protecting your skin during the sunny season.

1. Apply Sunscreen

One of the most effective ways to protect your skin from the sun is by using sunscreen. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of at least 30, and remember to reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating.

2. Wear Protective Clothing in the Summer

More importantly in the Summer, protective clothing can provide an additional layer of protection from the sun's rays. Look for clothing made from tightly woven materials and darker colors that can absorb UV light. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with UV protection to help protect your face and eyes from the sun.

3. Seek Shade

Avoiding direct exposure to the sun during peak hours (between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.) is an important way to reduce your risk of sunburn and skin damage. If you're outside, seek shade under a tree, canopy, or umbrella.

4. Hydrate

Drinking plenty of water is essential for maintaining healthy skin, especially during the summer months. Hydrating your skin from the inside-out can help reduce the risk of dryness and damage caused by prolonged sun exposure.

5. Limit Time in the Sun

While it's important to enjoy the outdoors, it's equally important to know your limits. Spending too much time in the sun can increase your risk of skin damage and other health concerns. Consider alternating time in the sun with rest breaks indoors or in shaded areas.

By taking steps to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, you can enjoy all the benefits of summer without putting your health at risk. Remember, prevention is key. Choose sun protection measures that work for you, and make them a part of your daily routine. Stay safe and have fun in the sun!
