The sun is responsible for 80% of premature aging which makes sun protection one of the best defenses against wrinkles. Check out these top 5 tips to protect your beautiful skin from the sun!
1. Wear a hat with at last a 2-3inch brim all around which is ideal. Wide-brimmed hats that surround the head—covering the face, back of the neck, and sides of the neck and face—will offer the most protection. Baseball caps, on the other hand, will only cover your forehead and half of your face, leaving quite a bit of your face vulnerable to the sun. Hats made of tightly woven fabric generally provide more protection than canvas hats and straw hats, according to the American Cancer Society.
2. Wear sunglasses that block UV rays. I know I'm always a sucker for a good deal but be sure that the cheap sunglasses your buying offers UV protection. UV radiation from the sun can damage not only the skin of your eyelid but also the cornea, lens and other parts of the eye. UV exposure also contributes to the development of certain types of cataracts, growths on the eye and possibly macular degeneration.
