Sexy, Summer and Sunscreen

Warm weather is upon us, naturally you will be spending more time having fun in the sun! Whether you're spending time at the beach, park or just taking a stroll anytime you're out during the day your skin is exposed to the sun's rays. While this can give you a beautiful sun kissed glow it can also lead to Sunburn and with more extreme cases, Skin Cancer. Yes, people with dark skin can get sunburn! So although a sun bathing is fun, be careful and do things to keep your skin healthy. 

Here are our Top 3 tips for protecting your skin in the Summer.

  1.  Although this one may seem obvious, wear Sunscreen! If you plan to be out in the sun all day it's best to put on a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Putting on Sunscreen may seem tedious but it is important to protect your delicate skin. You should aim to try to reapply sunscreen every 3-4 hours. Also keep in mind that regardless  the shade of your skin you need sunscreen! No skin color is immune from sunburn and damage.
  2.  Cover up (just a little!). Wearing a wide brim hat not also makes a fashion statement it  provides coverage for your face and neck from the sun. Sunglasses also protect your eyes from harmful sun rays,  which most people forget they need. Protecting your eyes from the sun is just as important as your skin. 
  3. Try to avoid sun exposure when the sun is at it's highest. Usually that is between 10 am- 4 pm, when the Sun is at its strongest it of course is more harmful. Of course we know you can't avoid the sun but if you are going to be out during those times it's important to make sure you are protecting your skin.

We hope you find these tips helpful, and remember its important for your skin to not only look healthy but BE healthy!
