While sun protection is needed all year round, it is especially important as spring and summer sun reaches us with greater intensity and for longer periods of time each day. This longer and more direct exposure impacts our skin with more energy, and warrants more focus on protection. Without adequate sun protection, we can suffer sunburn, premature aging and even skin cancer.
Every knowledgeable aesthetician and physician will warn you against the dangers of too much sun exposure and how to adequately protect yourself. Here are some basic tips to remember as we enter the spring and summer months of brighter sunshine:
Take advantage of shade, even when wearing protective clothing and sunscreen.
Wear clothing that loosely covers your skin, preferable darker colors or certified UV-resistant fabrics.
Hats with a 360-degree brim cover your face, ears and neck to some degree and provide great protection.
Tender skin around the eyes needs significant protection, and wrap-around style sunglasses offer the best.
Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays and has an SPF of 15 or higher.
