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.
3. Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.The strength of the damaging UV rays is based on various factors, including time of day, altitude and reflective surfaces. Avoid being out in the sun between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm, when the sun’s rays are the strongest.
4. Wear Sunscreen. Choosing the right sunscreen may seem harder than you think. Experts recommend a sunscreen that is SPF 30 and broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB protection). Sunscreen needs to be applied 30 minutes before going outside and re-applied every two hours. If you have swimming on your agenda, be sure to use water-resistant sunscreen and reapply when you get out of the water.
5. Post Suncare. The damage is done you've been in the sun all day so what do you do afterward? Your skin has been put through stress so it's important to relieve it with nurturing ingredients like aloe vera. One of my favorite things to do is massage aloe vera gel in circular motions with The BFF "Your Best Face Friend." Using this tool the gel is better absorbed and fresh blood is brought to the surface to aid in renewal. Learn more about The BFF here.
