How to Protect Your Skin under the Sunlight?

Nowadays, people prefer to go out or participant in the outdoor activities after work. Happy thing as the outdoor activity will be, our skin is always hurt or burnt by the sunlight. Thus, even though we have a good time at bench, mountain or sight, our outlook is affected to a certain degree, which is definitely not so worthwhile. Then, we need to pay attention to the skin protection.

Sun protection is an important aspect of skin care. The sun can cause extreme damage to the skin, not only in the form of sunburns and skin cancer; exposure to UVA and UVB radiation can cause patches of uneven skin tone and dry out the skin, reducing its elasticity and encouraging sagging and wrinkle formation. In addition, sunlight is harm to kids and the sick people. As a young girl, we especially need to focus on such issues.

It is important to make use of sunscreen or cosmetics to protect the skin from sun damage; sunscreen should be applied at least 20 minutes before exposure, and should be re-applied every four hours. Sunscreen should be applied to all areas of the skin that will be exposed to sunlight, and at least a tablespoon (25 ml) should be applied to each limb, the face, chest, and back, to ensure thorough coverage. Many tinted moisturizers, foundations and primers now contain some form of SPF. For cosmetics, we can avoid the direct light from sun and protect us effectively.

Sunscreens may come in the form of creams, gels or lotions; their SPF number indicates their effectiveness in protecting the skin from the sun’s radiation. There are sunscreens available to suit every skin type; in particular, those with oily skin should choose some different sunscreens; those with dry skins should choose sunscreens with moisturizers to help keep skin hydrated, and those with sensitive skin should choose unscented, hypoallergenic sunscreen and spot-test in an inconspicuous place such as the inside of the elbow or behind the ear to ensure that it does not irritate the skin.

Now you know how important it is to protect your skin and how to protect it. Go and tell your friends or do it yourself.
