Are you going on Spring Break? If you are planning to spend time outside during spring break, it's important to take steps to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Here are some spring break skin tips:
Wear sunscreen: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and apply it generously to all exposed skin. Don’t forget your face, neck, ears, and any other areas that will be exposed to the sun! It is also important to reapply every two hours.
Seek shade: Try to stay in the shade during the sun's peak hours, typically between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Wear protective clothing: Wear protective clothing (e.g. hats, sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts). This is a great way to shield your skin from the sun in addition to SPF.
Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
Moisturize: After spending time in the sun, apply a moisturizer to help soothe and hydrate your skin.
Remember, protecting your skin from the sun is important not just during spring break, but throughout the year to help prevent skin damage and skin cancer.
