Keeping Your Skin Protected
It is summer time and what better way to spend your time then out in the sun. But what people do not know is that to totally enjoy all that summer has to offer we first must cover up from the harmful UV rays that the sun is shining down upon us. Every time we step outside on a sunny day our skin is being bombarded by UV rays that, over time, can cause serious skin damage and even skin cancer.
One of the main causes of skin cancer is exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV rays). These rays are invisible, and are produced by the sun. Most often skin cancer is the result of overexposing your skin to the sun. UV rays cause this skin cancer because they create changes in the skin cells; tans and sunburns are direct examples of this. Most cases of skin cancer are preventable, and you can reduce the risk of yourself getting skin cancer by taking some simple yet extremely important steps. Select shaded areas for outdoor activities; wear clothing that will cover up your arms and legs; or apply sunblock to the areas of your skin that might be exposed to the sun.
If you are not sure what coverage to use, for example sunblock or protective clothing, it is best to go with the latter. Wearing protective clothing is one of the most effective ways to protect your skin from the sun's damaging UV rays. Unlike sunscreen, protective clothing can give you continuous protection throughout the day, and you don't have to deal with the oiliness that sunblocks and sunscreens leave behind on your skin. There are special companies, like Sunveil Protective Clothing for instance, that manufacture protective clothing that will still let your body breath with out suffocating you under long sleeves and pants.
So if you are out in the sun enjoying the heat, don't forget to cover up and protect your skin from those harmful UV rays!!
