How to Protect your Skin from Premature Aging and Skin Damage Outdoors All Year Long
Since it is now summer and a lot of us are outside gardening, eating, playing, and so on.. we need to make sure we are protecting our skin from the sun. Every day you need to make sure you are wearing atleast an SPF 30 sunscreen, because even if you only go outside for 30 minutes during the day, the sun is harshest on your skin right when you walk from inside to outside. Not only do people who tan all the time get skin cancer, it can happen to someone very easily if you are not protecting your skin on a daily basis and not paying attention.
If you are going to be outside for longer than an hour, you need to make sure you are reapplying your sunscreen regularly every hour to hour and a half, especially if you are sweating or getting wet. If you have a spray tan, the best kind of sunscreen to use so that you are not drying out your skin is something that is waterproof, like Bullfrog sunscreen for example. Also if possible when gardening or working outside, wear a large beach hat to protect the skin on your face, and make sure to wear sunglasses, not only to protect your skin, but to protect your eyes from the brightness of the sun.
If you are prone to acne and have sensitive skin, wear a sunscreen that is made for faces and has more natural ingredients. The easiest way to protect your skin from the suns rays are to get a good facial lotion that has SPF 30 or higher in it. That way you can use it as your daily lotion/primer for your makeup every morning. Also remember that in the colder months, you can still get sun damage. Remember to wear your sunscreen during the winter because if you are going to be outside when it’s snowing, it can significantly increase the reflection of the sun onto your face. So lather on that sunscreen when you are playing outside during the winter or shoveling. Not only will it protect your skin from sun damage but the cold weather dries out your skin so it will make sure your face is soft.
Just remember that healthy skin is sexy and you won’t regret taking care of your skin when you are older!
