Summertime is starting to fade, and as the days get shorter and the nights get crisper, it’s easy to think that you don’t need as much sun protection as you did during the hotter months. But the fact is that the sun’s rays don’t discriminate, and it’s just as easy to get a sunburn in the fall and even into the winter!
So don’t let down your guard during the dog days of summer. Instead, follow these tips!
- Dress in layers for sun protection and for the fickle climate. The mornings and evenings are starting to get chilly, but the afternoons are still white-hot. Dress for all weather with light, sun-blocking layers of natural fibers!
- Remember that the sun’s rays are most potent in the late afternoon. Try to schedule your gardening, outdoor shopping and other activities in the morning or the evening, once the sun has dropped on the horizon.
- Remember your SPF! Our titanium dioxide-based sunscreen can protect you from the sun’s rays without introducing foreign, harmful chemicals to your skin.
- Don’t forget your sunglasses and hat! This is especially important if you’ll be out working in the garden or strolling through the fair grounds for a long afternoon. Squinting in the sunlight is a major cause of wrinkles, so be proactive for healthy and youthful eyes.
