Protecting Your Skin is Important Year Round
The sunny days of June and the start of long summer days means getting outside and enjoying all that the season offers. Of course Florida is known as the Sunshine state so there are plenty of rays year round.
The summer however is when everyone pays more attention to making sure to protect their skin when going out to enjoy a day in the sun. The lazy days of splashing around in the pool; hanging out on the tennis court; a round of golf and other summer fun calls for using sunscreen or sunblock.
Both sunscreen and sunblock come in a wide variety of strengths and are tailored for various pursuits, but it’s important to read labels and be educated about the available products.
Skin Protection Tips:
- Everyone needs to use some type of protection from the sun! All skin tones benefit.
- Look for the expiration date. Last year’s bottle may not get you through this summer.
- Re-apply often. Most sun protection products are intended for 2-hour coverage or less. If in and out of the pool, you may need to reapply more often to stay protected. Don’t be misled by a sunscreen or sunblock labeled “water-proof,” it will still need to be re-applied.
- Use sunscreen or sunblock even on cloudy days because the sun’s rays are still being reflected.
