Too much time out in the sun can lead to some serious problems, from sunburns to heat stroke. Sun damage is responsible for premature aging, painful sunburns and is a risk factor for skin cancer. While sun damage is definitely something all women should take seriously, it doesn’t mean that you need to stay inside all summer.
By following a few sun safety tips, you can enjoy the warm weather without putting yourself at risk:
- Cover up. Protect yourself with ample clothing, like loose-fitting long-sleeved shirts or a beach cover-up. A hat with a wide brim can help to protect your face and neck.
- Wear good sunglasses. Squinting in harsh light leads to the formation of wrinkles around the eyes, and UV rays from the sun can cause damage to your vision. Pick up a good pair of sunglasses with ample coverage and protection from UVA and UVB rays.
- Enjoy the shade. If you’ll be spending time outside, seek out shaded areas to enjoy the warmth and fresh air without direct sun exposure. Bring an umbrella with you on your outings if you’re not sure there will be shade at your destination.
- Wear a good sunscreen. This is the most important thing you can do to protect your skin during the sunny months. The natural UV blocker in our vegan Complexion Protection sunscreen provides thorough protection from the sun’s rays. With an active ingredient of titanium dioxide, a natural chemical and physical sun blocker, our sunscreen offers SPF35+ protection.
These safety tips should help you stay safe all summer long without being cooped up indoors.
