As summer approaches everyone is ready to show off their favorite swimsuit during those long days by the pool. Warmer weather and longer days mean more sun exposure and while we all enjoy a warm day at the beach, it is important to remember your sunscreen. At Beginnings Aesthetic & Wellness, our staff encourages self-care to maintain your natural beauty.
Wear Sunscreen To Avoid Wrinkles
Protecting your skin from the sun is essential in keeping your youthful glow. Extended sun exposure drys out the skin leaving you looking dehydrated and aged. Sun exposure is also the leading cause of facial wrinkles. Wrinkles can make you look prematurely aged and often leave women and men feeling dissatisfied with their appearance. Sunscreen can help prevent the damage and dehydration caused by the sun.
Sun Tans Are Skin Damage Too
No one wants facial wrinkles, but an even more serious side effect of sun exposure is skin cancer. Whether you end your day with a suntan or a sunburn, you have already caused damage to your skin. Brown or red, any change in the color of your skin could contribute to an increased risk of developing skin cancer. Dr. T can help screen your skin for signs of developing cancer. If you have light skin or freckles, it is extra important to be screened for oral cancer at least once a year. Catching skin cancer early can save your life.
Stay Hydrated & Stay Covered While In The Sun
The health of your skin can be maintained from the inside out. What you eat and drink impacts your appearance and the look of your skin. It is always important to stay hydrated while enjoying the great outdoors. Be sure to drink plenty of water and avoid sugary sodas and limit fruit based beverages.
For outer skin protection, wear a wide-brimmed hat or long sleeves when possible. Always wear sunscreen and apply it regularly throughout the day especially after drying off after a swim.
