After a long, grey, and cold winter, It's time to enjoy warm weather and bright sunny days!
But be careful: The sun’s UV rays adversely affect the skin’s structure and biochemistry and significantly accelerate skin aging. Wrinkles, fine lines, pigment spots, thick and dry skin, melanoma, and other skin cancers are all signs of prolonged and repeated sun exposure. The appropriate use of sunscreen is an effective way of protecting yourself against UV rays. Confused by the wide variety of these creams, gels, oils, and lotions? Your healthcare professional can recommend the best options according to skin type and activity. Remember that there is more to sun protection than choosing a cream or gel. It is also recommended that you wear a hat and good sunglasses and limit your exposure to the sun. Getting your vitamin D is great, but doing it while protecting yourself from harmful UV rays is even better. Have a great summer!
