Forbes Living-Beauty Series Part V-Sun Protection

One of the most important things you can do for your skin is protect it from the sun. Spending a lot of time in the sun can cause brown spots, scaly spots, dry skin, wrinkles and skin cancer.

The best thing you can do is stay out of the sun but if you do go in the sun make sure you protect your skin. You need to protect your skin from the sun even when you’re going to the mailbox or walking your dog. Forbes Living did a bit of research on sun protection and came up with these tips.

Forbes Living Shares Tips on Sun Protection

Sunscreen-it is very important to wear sunscreen. You want to wear sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15. Make sure you spread it on thick. You should wear waterproof sunscreen if you will be swimming.

Wear a Hat-when you’re out in the sun make sure you wear a wide brim hat. This type of hat will protect your face, ears, head and your neck.

Stay in the Shade-look for a shady spot to sit in. This is especially important during midday hours.

Wear Sunglasses-you should purchase sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.

Another important thing you can do to protect your skin is stay away from tanning salons. They are known for causing skin cancer and accelerating the aging process. The producers of Forbes Living suggest you consider getting a spray tan instead.
