A short advice about the sun and how to take care of your skin
The suns rays are getting more potent and powerful than ever because of the ultraviolet rays that is coming through the ozone layer. It is very hard to determine what the rating or safety level is each day before you decide to go to the beach. You can go online to determine what the safety level is but when youre in a hurry and want to get to your current destination it seems that many people do not have the time or the patience to check the levels. This is why sunscreen is so important during the summer months. Now it comes time to ask the age old question and that is should I wear sun block?
If youre looking to protect your skin from the UV rays that the sun produces than it might be a good idea to check on the rating of the sun block that youre going to be using. The stronger the rating as on the sun block that youre going to use means it will be able to block out stronger harmful rays from the sun. This is very important when it comes to children and having them play outside because you do not want to let them get skin cancer do to overexposure of the sun. This is one of the leading causes of skin cancer because people do not block all the harmful rays and they sit in the sun too long.
You should use sun block if youll are going to be out in this on longer than 15 minutes.
On a hot 90 day and the sun shining with all its power you are going to want some protection on your skin that is exposed so that you do not get sunburned or expose your skin to the harmful rays.
The more protection you have the better off youll be to eliminate your chances of getting skin cancer due to prolonged exposure to sun.
