Skin Protection against the Sun

People that are always under the skin during work tends to look older compared to those that aren't. This is because constant sun exposure keeps your skin dry, which causes age spots, wrinkles and other skin problems. It can also cause skin cancer in the long run.

Applying moisturizing lotion is the best way to fight problems caused by constant exposure to the sunlight. But for the most part, here is a complete battle plan to avoid skin problems from happening.

We all know that using sun-block is our ultimate defense against the sun. But knowing how frequent and when should we use it is also important. If you’re at the beach or perspiring while under the sun, apply sunscreen as often as possible. If your outdoors, apply your sunscreen at least every two hours. The higher the SPF of your sun blocks the better. At least an SPF of 15 is good enough.

As much as possible avoid going outdoors between 9 o’clock in the morning to 3 o’clock in the afternoon. It’s this time when the heat of the sun is at its peak. If it is inevitable wear protective clothes to cover your skin. Wear pants, hat and long-sleeved shirts if necessary to stay under the sun while working. Make sure that you comfortable with the clothes you wear. Although it’s inevitable to get tan, avoiding direct exposure is your top priority.

  1. Sunscreen
    The sun's UV rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes. Put on sunscreen before you go outside, even on slightly cloudy or cool days. Don't forget to put a thick layer on all parts of exposed skin. Get help for hard-to-reach places like your back. And remember, sunscreen works best when combined with other options to prevent UV damage.
    The United States Food and Drug Administration has announced significant changes to sunscreen product labels that will help consumers decide how to buy and use sunscreen, and allow them to protect themselves and their families from sun-induced damage more effectively.
    How sunscreen works. Most sun protection products work by absorbing, reflecting, or scattering sunlight. They contain chemicals that interact with the skin to protect it from UV rays. All products do not have the same ingredients; if your skin reacts badly to one product, try another one or call a doctor. . sunsccreem
