Today will be the skin’s turn. We will propose some tips that are as well-known as useful to keep your skin protected from the attacks of the sun.
Protection From The Outside
The best protection is to reduce the amount of skin exposed to the sun. But since we cannot go out on the street with a work overall and a hood, we will have to find the perfect balance between covering the skin and not tormenting ourselves. The essential thing is to wear loose clothing, because when it is hot, those centimeters between the surface and clothes are appreciated and always breathable fabrics, such as cotton or linen. Low-breathable structures tend to cause a small-scale greenhouse effect: if you wear non-breathable clothing, no matter how baggy, you will have a wrong time.
What happens with the areas that we do not cover? A classic: sun protection throughout the day. The idea is to throw it out about 15 minutes before leaving home and go renewing every hour or so. When to replace the protector? You will notice that: if you feel that your protection is released from your skin -which is the subtle way of saying that you have been sweating for half an hour … by the way, have you checked what your clothes are made of? -, the best is that you dry and, when finished, renew your dose of protector. The sunscreen creates a film that slows down some of the UV rays, but surprisingly it is not designed to resist our sweat. If you’re going through a lot of heat, renew it.
And one more thing: hygiene is even more important in summer. In addition to not endangering social relationships, washing will often serve to get rid of small particles of sand, salt, and plants (typical if you’re on the beach) that, due to the sun, become abrasive and can ruin your skin. If you intend to spend the summer inside the pool, clear up your whole body well when you leave. Chlorine does not benefit your skin when the water dries.
Do not forget the accessories. In summer, some people dress more than in winter: hats, hats, handkerchiefs, sunglasses. Do not leave home without them.
