To be sun safe is to be aware of the damage that having your skin exposed to the sun could cause. You can act sun safe by wearing long t-shirts, pants and a hat, applying sunscreen prior to going outdoors or into the ocean is also another way to stay sun safe. The sun even on an overcast day produces harmful UVA and UVB rays which can dramatically damage our skin and cause early ageing, blisters, and even develop types of skin cancer.
By being aware of how much time you spend in the sun and applying the right clothing or lotions to your body you can ensure fun in the sun at no cost to your health.
Did you know that SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. SPF numbers are an approximate indication of how much protection from the sun a product will provide for your skin.
