Sun exposure may lead to dark marks, premature wrinkles and age spots on your skin. There are some useful tips that will help you to protect your skin in summer.
Avoid Sunlight from 10:00 a.m to 03:00 pm
The sunlight is the brightest and most intense between 10:00 a.m to 03:00 p.m in summer. You should minimize direct exposure to the sun during this time to avoid skin damage.
Take Food That is Good For Your Skin
Apply a diet that is beneficial for the skin. Fruits with high amounts of water and fiber like watermelon, apples and cantaloupes are known to be good for skin in harsh weather.
Plenty of Water
Water is the key to healthy skin in summer. During high temperatures the skin gets dehydrated, and it turns dry and dull. To keep the skin fresh,soft and smooth, you need to take at least 8-10 glasses of water daily.
Sun Block Cream
There are two types of UV rays ( A & B ) that are present in the sunlight and are harmful to the skin. Whenever you have to go outdoors in summer you need to apply sun block that provides your real protection from sun rays. The good sun block should provides broad spectrum protection with SPF value 40 or above.
Our eyelids and the area around our eyes is the most sensitive and needs extra protection. The best protection is to wear sunglasses in summers.
