Here's How to Avoid Sun Damage

By Virginia Laird

With summer here, you and your family are most likely ready to take advantage of the warm weather and sunshine. While it may be a nice thought to spend hours on end outdoors, it is necessary to make sure to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun. Skincare experts have put together a list of the many things which can help prevent your skin from suffering with sun damage, including:

  • Apply sunscreen often
  • Always wear a hat
  • Find shade where possible

Apply Sunscreen Often

Throughout the summer many will struggle with preventing sun damage and sunburn. While experts advise that it can be easy to prevent such issues, it does require investing in sunscreen. Skincare professionals suggest that applying sunscreen often is imperative when trying to protect the skin. It is recommended that you should keep a tube of sunscreen in your purse or bag so that it is always readily available. Make sure to do your research prior to investing in any sunscreen, as some may not provide the protection you desire. There are many which offer a chemical-based protection. Although these are great, some may have allergies to the ingredients. An alternative to these are sunscreens with a physical barrier, such as zinc.

Always Wear a Hat

Another tip to preventing sun damage is to always wear a hat. Skincare experts suggest that wearing a hat while out in the sun can help prevent premature wrinkles form making an appearance on the face. If you are like me, you think of wrinkles as an uninvited guest to the party. These professionals advise that while most hats provide some protection for the face, a wide-brimmed hat is best for the face and back of the neck.

Find Shade Where Possible

If you find yourself spending time outdoors it is best to find shade. This can help offer some protection from the sun. Staying in the shade is a great way to keep cool too. Where there is no shade possible, it may be wise to invest in a sun umbrella or canopy. Bringing your shade with you is a great way to ensure you and your family have a way to stay out of the sun.

If you are looking for a way to protect your skin from the summer sun, try applying these tips to your outdoor activity.
