We all feel the need to visit the beach, broil in the garden, or lounge by the pool as the summer heat takes over our life. We do want to have some fun, after all! But during the summer, remember to protect your skin.
There are several significant health advantages to exposing the skin to sunshine for at least 15 minutes each day. We cannot, however, overlook the skin-aging risks that the sun presents. The formation of free radicals, which cause the skin to become dry and wrinkled, is widely known to be triggered by sunlight. Skin cancer risk may also rise with sun exposure.
Summertime skin protection suggestions
- Apply high-quality sunblock. You may get the necessary protection by using either an SPF 30 or our new SPF 50. Avoid the error of using sunblock only once when in the sun. In order to be effective, sunblock must be reapplied frequently when in the sun. Your sunblock’s quality is crucial. It is not necessary for the substances to be harmful, and low-quality sunblocks have even been linked to skin cancer in press accounts! Also, if your sunblock is overly thick, it could clog your pores and cause acne.
- If you spend time in the sun, shield your face with a huge hat and a pair of strong sunglasses to prevent premature aging.
- Do not dehydrate! We all know how vital water is, but the best method to ensure that your body has enough water is to consume a lot of fresh produce.
- Increase your vitamin C intake. Vitamin C will neutralize the free radicals that the sun produces and aid in the collagen renewal process for the skin. I advise taking 500 mg of ascorbyl palmitate with food three or four times each day.
- Last but not least, enjoy yourself! Happiness prevents illness.
Love your skin,
