Summer Skincare Guide: Sun Protection & SPF

⭑ SPF means Sun Protection Factor

⭑ Wear sunscreen every day, even on overcast days

⭑ Choose a physical sunscreen over chemical sunscreen

⭑ Don't forget to apply sunscreen to overlooked areas, around your eyes and the back of your hands

⭑ Wear sunglasses to protect eyes and the delicate skin around the eyes

⭑ Pack a hat, and wear it when you're going to be in direct sunlight to protect your face, neck, chest, and shoulders

⭑ A broad-spectrum sunscreen blocks UVA & UVB rays that cause sun damage and accelerates aging

⭑ You can still tan while wearing sunscreen, so don't skip it

⭑ Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours if you're out in the sun

Replace expired sunscreen

⭑Your skin being exposed to sunlight is how your body makes vitamin D so some unprotected sun exposure is necessary. I choose to go out during sunrise or early morning and late evening at sunset when I'm going with out sun protection to minimize skin damage
