While you are in your youth you may not realize how important your skin is, especially the skin on your face. Heading to the beach, not wearing sunglasses while you drive, and forgetting to take your makeup may not even phase you. However, all of the situations just mentioned and more play a big part in how healthy your skin will be for the rest of your life. It’s never too late to start taking care of your skin because your health depends on it.
Wear Sunscreen Always
Forget the sun tan! You are more likely to get skin cancer if you sun bathe or head to the tanning bed constantly, instead of taking the right steps to learn how to care for your skin. Instead of allowing the sun to harm your skin, use sun screen and be aware how long you are out in the sun. Being out in the sun for short periods of time is healthy and invigorating and even helps replenish your body, such as through Vitamin D.
Vitamin D from the sun is great for a healthy complexion and body, but over doing it can lead to to skin cancer and other health problems down the road. Start being aware of how much sun your body is being exposed to, and take care of your skin in your youth as well as your adult years to maintain healthy skin.
Wear Sunglasses in the Car
If you desire to prevent cataracts in your eyes and sun spots due to too much sun exposure in the car, wear sunscreen, which was just mentioned to protect your delicate skin on your face. However, besides sunscreen, wearing sunglasses will also protect your eyes which will later prevent protein swimmers and other potential eye problems. Sunglasses also cut out some sun on your face, which later leads to sun spots and other skin irritations and marks.
You may think you are protected from the sun while you are in the car because of the body of the car, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. The sun will shine brightly in your car at times, especially during long road trips. Apply sunscreen and wear your sunglasses, which will create an extra layer of needed protection.
Find Quality SPF Makeup
Going back to the importance of your face, if you are a woman, you might want to invest in makeup that has SPF in it. A liquid foundation such as Lancome and other brands are purchased with at least 15 SPF or more. Head to your nearest mall or beauty store and ask – they will point you in the right direction.
If you don’t prefer to wear makeup, find a lotion that has SPF in it. Neutrogena has produced a strong SPF lotion and Oil of Olay also has lotion that has SPF 15 for sensitive skin. Applying makeup that has protection for your face will save you from wrinkles later in life as well. The more sun you are exposed to, the dryer your face becomes, and the dryer your face becomes, the more wrinkles you will have. Keep your face looking fresh, bright, and youthful with these tips.
Hopefully you’ve been convinced that even though the sun is good with its Vitamin D, it also can be fierce and harmful. Head to a store and stock up on lotion, vitamin E to repair damaged skin, and SPF. One day when you are older (or if you are already older,) your skin will thank you. Plus you’ll have a beautiful face and healthy glow that will surprise you.
