sun damage

The recent sunny (and unseasonally warm) weekend, as well as the Ekka, prompted me to think about sun screen.  I think sun protection gets left by the wayside during the cooler months because a lot of sun protection is importantpeople think the sun’s rays aren’t as strong, and all the cloud makes it easy to forget.

Without sun screen, I feel naked. For the last 25 years, there have been very few days where I haven’t put sunscreen on my face at the very least – the days I didn’t wear sun screen were the days I didn’t leave the house.

Your skin is so important and not only does unprotected sun exposure prematurely age your skin, but it also increases your risk of skin cancers. A recent study showed that 42% of the population get sunburnt at least once a year. Yikes!

So here are some easy sun protection tips for looking after your skin all year round (not just in summer!):

#1 Wear sun screen: even if your body is covered up, at least put some on your face and the back of your hands. This will ensure your skin is not harmed when you walk around outside. There are some great moisturisers out there with SPF 15+ and 30+. Remember: check the expiration date on the container.

#2 Accessorise: wear a hat – whether you’re out in the garden, shopping at the markets or having a coffee with friends, a stylish hat will protect you from the sun and make you look fabulous.

#3 Stick to the shade when you can: no sun screen protect your skin 100% so avoid being out in full sun for too long.

#4 Fake it: if you must have a tan, faking it is the safest option – even tanning beds are not good for your skin.

 

Keep that skin healthy!
