Sun Care Tips for Spring

October 21, 2020

Check out our great sun care tips just in time for Spring. Looking after your skin now will reward you big time later in life so there is no time like the present to get sun smart and start investing in your biggest asset, your health.

Coming into Spring, you can’t help but notice that the sun is getting stronger and finally warm weather has arrived. Unfortunately, with the warm weather, also the UV rays arrive too. These guys are not your skin’s friend. Yes, it is a fabulous source of Vitamin D but only in small doses. If you are planning to spend hours outside soaking up the rays, then read on for some great sub care tips to help protect you and your skin.

Sun Protective Clothing is probably the easiest way to be Sun Smart as donning clothing which has a UPF rating is quick, easy and smart. It is not just a beach thing to wear a rashie or rash vest, these tops are multi-purpose and are great for doing any outdoor activity like walking, gardening or just being out and about. Whether you pair it with swimwear or outdoor clothes, there are so many rashies to choose from that you will find one that works for you.

 Sunscreen is another good way of protecting your skin and something that I think here in Australia, it is completely second nature to us to slather it on daily. Being brought up with sunscreen as an essential when going outside or to the beach, reaching for the sun cream to put on exposed areas of skin is a ritual we all know and do.

Eye protection is also important as the sun’s rays are not just confined to our body ad skin. Eyes can also be affected and wearing sun glasses with a UV protective lens is a great way to protect them.

Hats are a great way to protect your head and face as the top of the head is something that we might miss thinking about when going through our sun care routine. And yes, you can get sun burnt through your hair so protecting the top of your head is very important. Look for a hat with a wide brim that will also give you great coverage of your face, ears and neck.
