As we reach the peak season of summer sun, wisdom suggest that we pay greater attention to protecting our skin. Yet, there are questions about the best way to do this. Should we avoid the sun? Is all sun exposure bad for us? Are all sunscreens created equal? Does clothing afford any protection?
Sunscreen alone is not enough, here are some helpful prevention tips.
The best sunscreen is a hat and a shirt. The uses of shirts, hats, UV-blocking sunglasses and umbrellas offer safe and effective protection from the sun. This way you won’t have to worry about chemicals that could be absorbed through your skin.
