That Ultra Violet rays can be harmful to skin is no news. But, that people hardly care about its harmfulness definitely is.
According to the National Council on Skin Cancer, wearing Sunblock of a good SPF alone doesn’t do the trick. Yes, it does protect the skin from getting tanned, or burned, but the Sun-induced effects can have far greater consequences. Skin Cancer is one of them.
While many believe that wearing a good quantity of sun block or keeps skin cancer at bay, the truth is that it does not. The Environmental Working group that comes under the aegis of The National Council on Skin Cancer throws some fine tricks for protection against sun exposure.
- Slip on a casual summer shirt
Sporting cut sleeves and slings are a fad in simmering summers. But, exposing skin to the brutal sun also exposes it to deadly cancer. Slipping into a full sleeved cotton shirt not only shields the skin from the harmful rays but also lends a chic look to your personality.
- Wear a generous amount of an SPF 15+ Sunscreen
Summers without sun blocks are unimaginable. If you are one of those girls who go out into the sun without any skin protection, you are a trouble caller. Slopping on a decent amount of sunscreen can shield your skin from getting tanned, to say the least. Using a scrub to treat the affected areas also helps.
Never stroll into the sun without wearing a sun block. Recite this mantra everyday for your skin’s sake!
- Slap on a hat
Your skin is not the only element of your existential being that gets ravaged by sun. Your hair are equally prone to becoming brittle and lifeless under the reign of the sun. Pollution is yet another culprit that wreaks havoc. Slap on a hat and fan out to have the summer fun, sans any crazy ‘sunny woes’!
