Top 5 Ways to Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Posted on 10 September 2018
Whether you are a woman who lives in Florida, or a vacationer or visitor, it's important to always look out for your skin. The sun is strong, and although it brings us joy and happiness, there are a few key things we should do before spending the day outside.
Protect Your Skin from the Florida Sun
Why is this so Important?
Unprotected exposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, skin cancer, and more. That's according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
How You Can Get a Sunburn
The sun consists of invisible UV rays. And these rays cause burning and other skin damage when they reach you. Just like many of you, I try to avoid getting wrinkles and skin cancer at all costs.
Who Needs Sun Protection?
Everyone needs sun protection. If you have lighter skin, darker skin, or anything in-between, you still need sun protection. That's because any tanning or burning on any color of skin can cause skin damage.

Another way to help protect your skin this summer and all year round is to stay in the shade. This can help to reduce your risk of skin cancer. Sitting under a porch or patio, under an umbrella, or even under a tree can help relieve you of the sun's rays.
3) Wear a Sun Hat
Wearing a sun hat is very stylish for us Florida women. We have some very cute options, too! The most protective hat will be a hat with a brim all the way around - so that it shades your face, the back of your neck, and your ears. Try the Stripe Woven Sun Hat by Magid. It's colorful, it's chic, and it offers great shade.
4) Wear Sunglasses
Because we live in Florida, we are constantly wearing sunglasses for style and protection. But just a reminder, sunglasses reduce the risk of cataracts and protect your eyes from UV rays. They also protect the tender skin around your eyes from sun exposure.
5) Don't Forget Your Sunscreen
Be sure to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 before you go outside - even on the overcast days. Also, it's recommended to reapply every two hours or less - especially if you have been swimming, sweating, or drying off with a towel.
The above 5 tips will help you protect your skin all year long in Florida. They will be helpful for your next day of fun in the sun, cruising, traveling, or playing golf!
