Ways to Protect your Skin from the Sun

Summer is fast approaching, and everyone knows what that means, time for some fun in the sun. Time to go on vacation, go to the beach, and enjoy the outdoors. But wait, that means people will be exposing themselves to an awful lot of sun, and where some sun is right for you, too much can lead to some serious issues. Premature wrinkles, sun blemishes, and freckles can occur, as well as more serious matters like melanoma. Now to make sure you are not too nervous about going outside here are some simple tips to help protect your skin from the sun.Set of different sun screens


The most obvious defense is often the most reliable. Sunscreen will help block you from absorbing UV rays emitted by the sun, therefore not allowing your skin to take damage. Make sure it is applied thoroughly to any exposed areas before you go out on your trip.

Cover up

Ever wondered why tan lines are a thing? That is because that layer of clothing is preventing the sun from reaching your skin. The cloth ensures that your skin has proper protection. Your overall cover can be improved by adding a canopy, like an umbrella or sunhat.


The more you are exposed to the sun, the more you’ll sweat. You need to make sure your body’s fluids are replaced by the appropriate amount of water. Before going out start your day with a glass of water or cup of tea.

Another aspect of hydration to remember is the surface of the skin itself; the sun will dry out the surface of your skin as well. Make sure to utilize the right kind of moisturizing cream or lotion, ones with hyaluronic acid, ceramides, or coconut oil are your best option.Woman in front of the sun drinking water

Stay Inside

Just because it is a beautiful day out, does not necessarily mean you have to be out all the time. Avoiding the sun somedays by staying inside, or waiting until the sun is going down to go out will help with reduction of sun exposure.
