Fun in the Sun [BEAUTY TIPS]

Summer Vacation

Summer is around the corner! And, we often take this time to remind ourselves of how we can protect our skin from potentially damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays that can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.

Yet, Summertime isn't the only time that our skin is exposed to potentially damaging UV rays. It's year round...during sunny and overcast days.

Here are some tips for when you're heading outdoors for some fun in the sun and during those cloudy days too.

* Don that wide-brimmed hat to provide some shade up top because sunburn on your forehead, ears, and scalp are not pleasant. Yes, we've been there! Spending more time under shady trees and umbrellas are also helpful.

* Slather on sunscreen with an SPF (sun screen factor) of 30 or higher. Look for sunscreen products that offer broad spectrum coverage to protect from UVA and UVB rays. Products that include titanium dioxide or zinc oxide could provide more natural protection and avoid artificial chemicals such as oxybenzone, petrochemicals, PABA, parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrances.

* Wear breathable, light-colored clothing that offer more coverage and keep you cooler at the same time. Staying indoors during the hottest times during the day is also a great way to protect your body.

* Shield your eyes. Wear the right sunglasses to protect your eyes from glare and damaging UV rays.

So, be kind to your body and remember to protect your skin while enjoying the wonderful outdoors!
