For many people August is the month of holidays, if you are not going yet you will go soon. In general (but not always!) we tend to go to a sunny place, we tend to fly to the south like the birds. In my case, I will go to Barcelona and I expect lots of sun and good weather. Even though we like to get some good color on our skin it is very important that we protect our skin from the sun.
Protecting your skin from the sun will make your skin slowing down from the effects of aging, wrinkling, and it will protect you from skin cancer. If you have to be exposed to the sun in the beach it is important to know that rays are most intense from 10:00 am to 16:00 pm and are most responsible for sunburn. So, either stay in the beach for a couple of hours or go after 16.00 pm that the weather is still nice and good. According to Women’s Health “To maximize the sunscreen’s protection, apply it 30 minutes before exposure and reapply at least every two hours.”
I have been researching organic sunscreen to have some ideas of what is now on the market and I saw that those ones have very good recommendations. Some of them like live live organic offer organic and vegetarian products. Goddess garden organics natural sunscreen “protects and nourishes even the most sensitive skin without harsh sunscreen chemicals”. Art Naturals offer products that “are designed to combat the negative external and internal factors that affect the hair, face, skin, nails and overall health.” With all these suggestions, I hope you have a wonderful summer and enjoy the sun always with protection because our skin is one of the most important part of our body and we should take care of it. Have a nice day!
