Sun worshipers spend hours baking in the sun to get the perfect tan. A little sun is good for you, especially soaking in that natural vitamin D. But years of sunburns have taught us that those beautiful tans lead to early aging and serious skin problems.
Even though it’s 93 million miles away, the sun’s rays cause skin to age much faster than normal and will increase chances of skin cancer. Even if the weather is cloudy, those UV rays will pass through the clouds and damage your skin. So, when you’re working outside this summer, be sure to protect yourself.
Wear a hat, long sleeves, and use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor of at least 15 or higher. One that’s waterproof will protect you even longer while you’re working up a sweat.
