Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Sun

Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Sun don't underestimate the power of sun protection.

Sun damage can accelerate the aging process and cause wrinkles and age spots. It's OK to get a little sun, but basically everybody should always wear sunscreen or sunblock and repeat it every one to two hours if you're outdoors and especially if it's really hot.

While a tan might create the illusion of a “healthy glow,” there’s really no such thing as a safe tan.

Other thing to consider is clothing. You can leave a check for a specific number on clothes called UPF. It stands for ultraviolet protection factor, which measures a garment’s ability to block your skin from all UV rays.

Sure, have fun in the sun, but protect yourself. Your skin will thank you.
