Effective Ways to Protect Your Skin This Summer

While laying by the pool or the beach sounds wonderful, harmful UV Rays can have a negative effect on your skin. So how do you protect your skin in warm weather and sunshine? 

Tip #1: Avoid excessive exposure to the sun! 

Harmful UV rays can not only lead to skin cancer but can lead to premature aging. Did you know that up to 90% of the visible changes attributed to aging are caused by the sun? (Source) But if that is not enough to scare you, consider these facts:
  • Each year, more cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the U.S than new cases of breast, lung, and colon cancer combined. 
  • One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. 
  • One American dies from skin cancer every hour. 
Melanoma, one of the most serious forms of skin cancer, affects adolescents and young adults ages 15-29. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, "UV exposure and sunburns, particularly during childhood, are risk factors for the disease." 

So how do you protect yourself? 


Protect your skin by using sun block with SPF protection: 
The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) refers to the products ability to screen or block out the sun's harmful rays.

Cover Up:

It almost seems self explanatory, but if you want to protect yourself from the sun, cover it up! Wear light colored, loose fitting clothing that will help you keep cool and help prevent sunburn. 

If you must have a tan, protect your skin by using a selfless tanner:
