Sun, The Skin’s Enemy

By Undine Houston

Anyone who loves the sun and lying out under it should pay close attention to this. You should consider that the sun is actually harmful for your skin. Sun lovers should remember and pay close attention to the subsequent concepts when they are going about their normal sun worshiping activities, so that they are capable of protecting their skin from the harmful effects of the radiation of the sun.

There are certain hours that you should seek to avoid the sun altogether. From ten every morning until three o’ clock every afternoon are the most dangerous times to be in the sun. The sun’s damaging radiation is at its peak strength during this time frame.

If you have to go out into the sun, then protect your skin. Applying sun blocker liberally and generously is a good place to start. On top of this, you should wear clothes which protect your skin from the sun. Hats, long sleeved shirts, and long pants are all good ideas in order to give you some form of protection.

Many individuals absolutely love tanning beds. In reality, they are horrible for your skin! People should never go use a tanning bed under any circumstances. Increasingly, they are causing early signs of aging, as well as contributing to skin cancer.

Never underestimate the importance of high quality sunscreen. You should apply a sun tan lotion on all the exposed parts of your skin liberally. In picking out a sun tan lotion, choose one that keeps you from the two different types of the sun’s radiation, both UVA and UVB. Sun blocker that contains a high SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, of at least fifteen, should be utilized. This SPF 15 signifies that you are able to remain in the sun for as much as fifteen times more than you would typically be able to without it, before your skin starts burning.

You should put the sunscreen on generously a full half an hour in advance of going out into the sun. This is so that your skin will have sufficient time to absorb the sun tan lotion itself. Your skin must already be protected when you undergo the harmful radiation rays.

It is true that some sun tan lotion products cause allergic reactions in individuals. You may find that you have to try a few of them out in order to find one that works well for your specific type of skin. The truth is that the most effective sun protection available to your skin lies in not going out in the sun any longer than you must.
