In this scorching summer heat, there are higher chances of our skin getting sunburnt. Protecting the skin against such damage is vital. Here are some ways to protect your skin from the harsh sunlight:
- Apply Sunscreen
Applying Sunscreen is extremely important. It is necessary to apply sunscreen everyday even if it is cloudy outside. Sunscreen should be applied thoroughly around 15 to 20 mins before stepping out in the sun. This is one of the simplest and most effective ways to protect your skin against sunburns.
- Limit your exposure
The sun’s rays are harshest and strongest during specific hours : 10 AM to 4 PM. Avoid too much sun exposure during these hours as there is a higher chance of the sun rays affecting your screen.
Yes, you heard that right! Wearing accessories like sunglasses, hats and scarfs can help you to be safe from the summer heat. Wearing sunglasses which have 90 to 100 percent sun absorption lenses can really help in protecting your eyes. Similarly, wearing a scarf can help to protect the sensitive skin on your neck.
So, this summer, let’s protect our skin from the harmful sun rays!
