Summer is in full swing and that means it’s time to start taking the sun seriously— July is UV Safety Awareness month, and it’s time to make sure you’re educated. Whether you’re a pool person, a lake lover, or a beach bum, learning about how to properly protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sunshine is an important part of enjoying the endless days.
Choosing a sunscreen
When it comes to specific types of sunscreen, your choice matters. There are two primary types: chemical and physical.
Chemical sunscreen absorbs into the skin and absorbs UV rays. If you’re the active type, this is the better choice for you. Not only do chemical sunscreens absorb into the skin quicker, chemical sunscreens are also water-resistant making them the ideal choice for swimmers or those who sweat easily.
Physical sunscreen, on the other hand, sits on top of the skin and reflects the sun’s rays. This type of sunscreen is ideal for those with rosacea, or sensitive skin. While physical sunscreens can be harder to blend into the skin, they tend to be more moisturizing.
Whichever you choose, make sure that it’s at least SPF 30, and be sure to regularly reapply if you plan on being in the sun for an extended period of time.
