Sunny
Side Up

You know the drill by now: slather on some sunscreen 15 minutes before you head out and yes, you will likely need to reapply every two hours or so.

We know it can be a drag, but the only way to prevent burnt, raw, peeling skin? Use protection.

Look for “broad spectrum” lotions: They block both UVA rays — the type that causes premature ageing and skin cancer — as well as UVB, which cause sunburn (and can also cause cancer)

SPF MOISTURISERS

Come summer when the exposure time to ultraviolet rays is increased use a combination SPF Moisturiser. Hydrating your skin not only keeps it smooth and healthy, but the added sunscreen reduces the UV-induced photo-damage that leads to skin cancer and premature ageing.

MAN WITH A (SELF) TAN

Let’s be honest there’s really no such thing as a safe tan. That being said, there’s also no doubt that most of us look a little better with some color. Fortunately, there are products that allow you to get a sunless tan from the privacy of your own home. Avoid streaks by making sure you are not hot and sweaty before applying and don’t forget to wash your hands!

THE GOLDEN RULES OF
SUN PROTECTION

Sunscreen only works if you use it properly.
Follow these guidelines to protect your skin and your health…

1. APPLY SUNSCREEN 30 MINUTES BEFORE HEADING OUTDOORS.

2. REAPPLY EVERY TWO HOURS, REGARDLESS OF THE SPF LEVEL. SUN- SCREEN WEARS OFF BY SWEATING OR EASILY TOWELED OFF.

3. USE PROTECTION ON ALL PARTS OF YOUR BODY. DON’T FORGET YOUR EARS, HEAD, HANDS, LIPS AND FEET.

4. EVEN IF YOU HAVE A T-SHIRT ON, YOU SHOULD USE SUNSCREEN.

5. WATERPROOF SUN BLOCK MAY NOT BE AS WATERPROOF AS YOU THINK; APPLY MORE AFTER SWIMMING OR SWEATING.

6. USE THE RIGHT AMOUNT. EVERY TWO HOURS, YOU SHOULD APPLY AT LEAST 30MLS – THINK 2 GENEROUS TABLESPOONS – IF NOT MORE.

7. SUNSCREEN EXPIRES AND LOSES ITS EFFECTIVENESS OVER TIME. THE SUN AND HEAT WILL ALSO JEOPARDISE ITS STRENGTH.

8. USING AN SPF OF 15 IS A GOOD START, BUT YOU SHOULD USE AN SPF OF 30 OR MORE IF YOU ARE PLANNING LENGTHIER PERIODS IN THE SUN.
