Summertime Sun Protection

Summertime brings with it beautiful flowers, swimsuits, and sunshine, but it doesnít have to bring sunburn if you put in a little preparation. By using sunblock and other sun protection methods, you will find that you can keep your skin free from the effects of the sun to help prevent pain and damage to your skin. Sun protection is very important, even during the winter months, because sun can damage the skin and this damage can become fatal if attention is not given to it as soon as possible. Sunblock is the first method of skin protection that you should consider.

Sunscreen or sunblock is used to help decrease the penetration of the sunís rays into your skin and body. There are many different types and degrees of sunscreen that is available for your use. From sprays to lotions to gels and more, you can find the form of sunscreen that best fits your needs and your desires. The different SPFs dictate how long the sunscreen will protect your skin. You can get the duration of effectiveness by multiplying the SPF by the number of minutes that it normally takes for you to burn. This can give you an idea of how long the sunscreen will work for your skin. Most healthcare providers recommend an SPF of at least 30 for everyone to help prevent sunburn and sun damage.

Other methods of sun protection can include clothing or accessories. A hat can be an essential part of your wardrobe during the summer months, because they can help to protect your face from the sun and they are quite stylish and fun to wear. Long sleeves are a great tool to protect your arms, but may not be comfortable during very warm weather. By choosing the right fabrics and clothing, you can add another layer of protection to your body to help prevent sun damage.

Sun protection is an essential part of the summer to keep yourself healthy now and in the future. By taking care of your skin by using sunscreen and other sun protection methods, you will find that your skin will look younger for many more years than sun ravaged skin. That is well worth the effort that you will put into sunscreen and other sun protection methods. Enjoy the sun!
