Now that we are seeing warmer weather it is very important to remember to wear sunscreen every day! Since gyms are closed, for the time being, many folks are getting their exercise outside. Even on cloudy days, don’t forget to put on your sunscreen!
All of us should be using a sunscreen with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of at least 15 on our faces, ears, and hands. With summer approaching quickly, additional sunscreen to exposed skin is necessary. If you are perspiring, it’s important to re-apply sunscreen throughout the day! We’ve recommended this product before, but for a really good medical-grade,non-comedogenic sunscreen, try Elta-MD – it actually physically blocks the UV radiation. You can order this online for delivery or no contact, curbside pick-up at Azura Skin.
The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) also recommends seeking shade to reduce the risk of skin damage or skin cancer due to the sun. Even with shade, it is important to use sunscreen or wear protective clothing such as long-sleeve shirts, long pants, and skirts. Don’t forget to wear a protective hat as well as sunglasses while you are out in the sun. To read more on this topic, take a look at our Healthy Summer Living Tips.
