We all spend time in the sun. Many of us forget how much exposure we actually get until we are dealing with a sunburn. No one wants to give up spending time outside and having fun with family and friends. We have several ways to protect ourselves from the devastating effects of harmful UV rays.
Use Sunscreen and Other EltaMD Skin Care Products Daily
EltaMD is at the top of the list of products recommended by Dermatologists. Using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is important if you want to protect your skin. We carry many EltaMD skin care products that are designed to nurture and protect your skin. From cleansing to moisturizing, the products we offer are formulated to provide your skin with the nutrients you need.
Reapply It Often
During the hot summer months, sweating is not uncommon. The more you sweat, the more your sunscreen is broken down. Going swimming or rinsing off in the pool will also wash away your sunscreen. Every two or three hours, reapply your sunscreen to ensure your skin has the protection it needs.
Shade Your Face With a Hat
If you know you’re going to be outside for any length of time, wear a hat with a large brim that shades your face, head, neck, and shoulders. Even when you wear a hat, it’s still important to wear sunscreen on your face and arms.
Avoid Being in the Sun Between 10 AM and 4 PM
The sun is strongest between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM. If you have to be outside, try to get all of your work done before or after these hours so that you aren’t exposed to the harsher rays of sunlight.
Limit the Time You Spend Near Reflective Surfaces Like Water or Metal
Water, ice, snow, glass, and metal all have reflective surfaces that can direct the harmful UV rays of the sun in almost any direction. Try to avoid standing too close to these surfaces for any length of time.
