Keep Your Skin Protected with the Power of Sunscreen
Pool parties, beautiful beaches, and barbecue parties — summertime’s here! With most of our days spent outdoors under the heat of the sun, it’s important to protect ourselves from the harmful effects of UV rays. That is why National Sunscreen Day was created.
Observed every 27th of May, this day serves as a reminder for us to get into the habit of applying sunscreen every time we go out. While summer is the time to have fun with our friends and family out in the sun, our safety should always be our top priority. So, before you head out to the beach with your best swimsuit on, you better make sure that your body’s all covered in sunscreen. Don’t forget to bring a tube with you!
Sunscreen Tips for Everyone
The sun’s UV rays are known to bring many hazards to our health, such as unbearable sunburns, premature skin aging, and, worst, skin cancer. Fortunately, they can be prevented with sunscreen. Continue reading below to learn how you can use it to keep your skin healthy and glowing all summer long.
- Use a sunscreen with the right SPF.
Buy a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Be sure that you find the label “broad spectrum” on its tube, as a sunscreen lotion with this quality will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays.
- Timing is key.
It normally takes about 15 minutes for sunscreen to be absorbed by the skin. This means that you’re most likely to get a sunburn if you go out right away after applying sunscreen.
- Spread sunscreen generously to all parts of your body.
Never leave any area unprotected from the sun. Apply a teaspoonful of sunscreen to your face, neck, chest, arms, back, and legs. You’ll also need to apply sunscreen on your scalp if you have thinning hair.
- Reapply at least every two hours.
To ensure that you are fully protected from the sun throughout the day, reapply sunscreen every two hours. If you’re swimming or working out excessively, see to it that you reapply immediately after you’re done.
