SUNSummer is here and so are lazy days on the beach, outdoor trips and swimming. All of these are fun activities but taking the proper steps to protect your skin and still enjoy the sunshine is important to prevent serious damage. The effects of the sun on your skin can have immediate and long term effects on your overall health. You’re never too young to begin a skin care regimen to prevent potential damage.
 
What Kind of Damage Can Happen?
 
Short term and long term effects of damage to the skin from increased sun exposure can be seen early on. Damage does not merely occur from prolonged time in the sun, frequent short trips can cause just as much damage over time. Outwards signs of damage include wrinkles, freckling, discoloring of the skin and development of moles. Long term exposure can lead to more significant health problems such as the development of skin cancer (which can be fatal) and impairing the immune system and ability to fight disease. The amount of sun absorbed by the skin can lower the body’s natural ability to fight many of the problems associated with sun exposure because it negatively impacts a skin cells normal functioning.  
           
Keep Your Skin Safe:
 
The use of sunscreen is an efficient and simple way to prevent damage from occurring before it begins. According to Belle Tuckerman, our founder, it is best to use a full spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, this will need to be reapplied frequently throughout the day or after certain activities such as swimming to main full effectiveness. Search for a sunscreen that offers protection against UVA and UVB rays to ensure the best protection.
 
A broad spectrum SPF Sunscreen can be used in place of a full spectrum but remember to apply more frequently to maintain protection levels all day long. Always follow all product directions regarding use and application.
