Is there more to protecting your skin from the sun than just throwing on some sunscreen when you decide to head to the beach? Yes, there’s more. When you head outside to begin your day, make sure you apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before you leave out the house even if the day is gray. Even with the clouds blocking the sun, 80 percent of the UV rays can still pass through. Although you may not be going to the beach, still do not forget to apply sunscreen to more than just your face. Remember to protect your skin that will be exposed to the sun during the day. 

They say that you should avoid direct sunlight between 10 am and 4 pm, but your life can’t stop due to the sun. So, when you are out, wear something to protect yourself from the sun's UV rays, like a hat or a light weight long sleeve shirt. If you are headed to the beach, do not assume that just because the bottle says water resistant it will last longer than a normal sunscreen. The waterproof product only lasts about 30 minutes or less depending on how long you spend in the water. While you are enjoying your time at the beach, you get sunburns, but don’t worry about it. Majority of sunburns can be treated with cool baths, over-the-counter creams, aspirins, and/ or moisturizers. Now, don’t think you can run and hide under an umbrella at the beach. You may not feel it, but the sun’s rays can penetrate through the umbrella. 

When you are indoors, you should apply a little bit of sunscreen. Your windows may protect against UVB rays, but they do not protect you against UVA rays. UVA rays are the main causes of wrinkles and brown spots on your skin. When shopping for a good sunscreen, make sure to check for a seal of approval. If the sunscreen carries a seal from the American Academy of Dermatology or the Skin Cancer Foundation, only then should you purchase it.  You want a sunscreen that provides a great UV coverage. It’s common for people to forget sunscreen when they head out, don’t be one of those people. Protect your skin at all cost. You’ll thank yourself later!
