How to Protect Your Skin from Harmful UV Rays

How to protect Your Skin from Harmful UV RaysThe vitamin D the sun provides your body with is great for your health, but unfortunately the UV rays that come with it are not. Exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA, UVB, and UVC rays can have permanently damaging effects of your skin and internal health. To prevent sunburns, wrinkles and aging-skin, as well as the dangers of skin cancer, it is necessary that you always protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

 

Sunscreen is Essential

 

Applying sunscreen before you step out of the house should be a habit regardless of the temperature or length of time you are spending outside. So many people only put it on if they are spending the day at a beach or pool. It should be worn every day, even when it is cloudy out. You are still exposed to the sun rays even when you can’t physically feel them. It will make it easier to remember to wear sunscreen, if you use a daily moisturizer that has a high SPF rating.

 

Sunglasses with UVA & UVB Protection

 

Wearing a pair of dark sunglasses is not enough to protect your eyes from damaging UV rays. When you wear dark glasses, your pupils enlarge ten times their regular size. Sunglasses that do not have UVA and UVB protection will only filter out the ambient light. They will still allow harmful rays of sunlight to penetrate your eye’s thin membrane, which is stretched out because of wearing the dark shades. Exposure to UVA and UVB rays can increase your chances of macular degeneration, cataracts, and even ocular melanoma, which is a rare type of cancer.

 

Wear a Baseball Hat

 

Any type of hat that creates some shade on your face will work fine. A hat won’t keep you completely safe, but it will help by creating a barrier from the sun. Your forehead, cheeks, and nose are usually the first areas to get sunburnt and a hat will help protect all three.

 

It is also a good practice to limit the amount of time you spend in the sun between 10am and 4pm. The sun is the most powerful during the middle of the day. You should also wear dark colours and cover as much as your skin as possible. If you plan on spending a great deal of time outside, you should wear more tightly-woven fabrics that won’t allow the sun to seep into your skin.

 

Protect your skin and eyes from the sun’s harmful rays by wearing sunscreen, sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection, and a baseball hat. Limit your exposure by avoiding the sun when it is at its highest and wearing dark, tightly-woven fabrics. Sunny weather is meant to be enjoyed and it can be, as long as you protect yourself first.
