We wanted to write a blog on all the best tips to protecting yourself from too much sun exposure and the harmful UV rays.
Too much sun exposure isn't healthy while a day at the beach sounds like a no brainer, and planning to stay protected and wear the right sun screen is key.
Sun protection is essential — it helps guard against free radical damage and significantly reduces the risk of skin cancer.
Keep reading for our tips on how to keep yourself protected from the sun...
1.) Wear a wide brimmed hat
Your face is the most important to protect, wearing a large hat is ideal because it will protect your face, the neck ear, eyes, forehead.
This will help avoid a face burn which can be very damaging and also aging.
There are tons of cute big floppy hats everywhere pick yourself up a couple to leave in a few places. Leave one specifically in your car this way if you ever decide last minute you will always have one handy.
2.) Be careful in the water
Water can be very reflective, and can increase your chances of sunburn. Make sure you are putting a waterproof sunscreen on before taking a dip in the water.
Then reapply after getting out of the water.
3.) Avoid Tanning Oil's
As enticing as some of the ads can be for deep tanning oils...
Do not buy them.
They hey do not protect you from the sun, and may increase the chances that you will get a sunburn!
you will still get a natural tan from the sun even with SPF on.
4) Know the best SPF's to use
This ones a big one.
Chemicals found in common sunscreens can be very harmful. Recent studies have found - avobenzone, oxybenzone, ecamsule, and octocrylene—are absorbed into the bloodstream after just one day of sunblock use. That's a scary thought isn't it!
