A day of fun in the sun can easily turn into a painful and damaging experience for your skin without sun protection. As time goes on and pollution continues the sun’€™s rays are becoming more damaging than ever. Fortunately there are some great ways to protect your skin so you can still enjoy being outside. Sunscreen, sun protection clothing and seeking out shade when possible are some easy ways to protect your skin.
To help keep your skin looking great, prevent early signs of aging and, most importantly, protect yourself against skin cancer; it is a good idea to make applying sunscreen a daily habit. This might seem like a difficult task but new products are making daily sunscreen use easier than ever. There are many daily face creams available with SPF protection and applying sunscreen to kids is simple with sunscreen sprays. But sunscreen alone will not provide maximum protection.
Protective clothing like rash shirts are a great way to protect a larger part of the body while you are enjoying activities like swimming and playing at the beach. These shirts are made of SPF protective material and can also save time by allowing you to skip applying sunscreen to the parts of the body covered by it. They are available in a wide variety of styles and colors and are even available with fun colors and favorite childrenâ€™s characters to make sun protection fun for kids.
When possible, seek shade. Protective clothing like rashies and wearing sunscreen will help keep your skin safe when you are out enjoying the sun; but taking frequent breaks to sit in the shade and cool down is also a good idea.
Keeping safe from the sun’s harmful rays does not have to mean missing out on outdoor fun. Great new sunscreen products and protective clothing make sun protection easier than ever, and the appearance and health of your skin will benefit for years to come from proper protection.
