As the temperature continues to rise, we can’t help but day dream about our next day at the beach or picnic in the park. While we love the feel of a little sun on our face, we know the importance of SPF and sun safety.
The next time you head outside for a hike or to plant in your garden, keep these sun safety tips in mind.
Summer Sun Safety Tips
SPF Tip 1: Get Physical (Sunscreen)
Physical sunscreens reflect and absorb the sun’s rays before they get to the skin, while chemical ones absorb them at the skin’s surface. Learn more about the difference between physical and chemical sunscreen.
SPF Tip 2: Protect Your Glow
SPF Tip 3: Embrace Hat Hair
Double up on your sun protection by pairing your sunscreen with a wide-brimmed hat. Check out this great article from the Skin Cancer Foundation on choosing the right sun protective hat.
SPF Tip 4: Soft, Sun-protected Lips
Layer a LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm under your lip color for added sun protection.
SPF Tip 5: Eat to Beat the Heat
Did you know that certain foods protect from UV damage? For example, studies have shown tomatoes and red apples help keep skin from turning red.
SPF Tip 6: Be Safe in the Sky
Use HandDrink SPF 15 Hand Cream when flying. The sun’s radiation is stronger at higher elevations.
SPF Tip 7: Reapply Regularly
