Keep the Sunburn Away: 3 Tips to Follow

By Virginia Laird

As always, with summer under way, one concern on the minds of millions throughout the nation is how to prevent sunburn for themselves and their children. While many wish this to be a simple task, the truth is: Preventing sunburn takes a great deal of effort and planning. Skincare experts suggest that protecting your skin beginning at a young age can help prevent skin cancer later in life. Health and wellness experts admit that preventing sunburn can help protect your overall health. A few tips these experts provide to help you keep from burning this summer include:

  • Wear sunscreen when you head outside
  • Always wear a hat outdoors
  • Find the shade as much as possible

Wear Sunscreen When You Head Outside

With the summer sun on full blast, it is necessary to make sure you apply sunscreen before heading outdoors. Health and wellness experts admit that sunburn is detrimental to the overall health of everyone. While a tan may be desirable, burning can prevent the body from healing properly and cause a great deal of damage. Still, neither are great for your skin. Research indicates that the body treats both a sunburn and a tan the same way as it tries desperately to heal the skin that has been damaged. This can put the body in overload, which can hamper health in a variety of other aspects. As you plan your summer outdoor activities, make sure it includes sunscreen for all.

Always Wear a Hat Outdoors

For the millions who would rather prevent sunburn from the face, it is necessary to invest in a hat. Skincare experts suggest that wearing a hat whenever you go outdoors, no matter the weather, can help prevent sun damage to the face. It is advised that wearing a wide-brimmed hat is best for preventing sun damage around the face and the back of the neck. Still, any hat which protects the face from the sun is better than no hat at all. Start today making a hat (while outdoors) part of your daily routine.

Find the Shade as Much as Possible

Another tip the skincare experts provide to prevent sunburn is to find the shade wherever possible while outdoors. Sitting in the shade can help protect the body from direct sunlight, which can cause damage to the skin. When there is no natural shade, having an umbrella handy can help you get the shade needed to protect your skin. Start today looking for shade as you get outside and enjoy the outdoor life.

Now is the time to begin protecting your skin from burning as you are getting outdoors more and enjoy the warmth and beauty that summer has to offer.
