Sunlight damages your skin, make it age faster. Ultraviolet light, the invisible but intense rays of the sun causes skin problems including deep wrinkles, dry, rough skin, liver spots, and more serious disorders, such as noncancerous (benign) and cancerous (malignant) skin tumors.
Sun care is a year round task not just for summer. You need to do all three methods for the most complete sun protection:
- Avoid Exposures Under The Sun During High-Intensity Hours. The sunrays are most harmful from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the day. So, minimize your time spending outdoors during these hours.
- Cover Up Your Skin if Go Out Under the Sun. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and put on protective clothes, such as long-sleeved shirts, long pants.
- Always Use Sunscreen. The best way to apply sunscreen is to work down. Begin with the face, ears, neck, arms and hands, then the chest, abdomen, thighs, legs, feet, and then let someone else get your shoulders and back well covered. Also, reapply sunscreen every one and a half to two hours if you go swimming.
