The Importance of Sun Protection and How to Protect Your Skin Naturally

The Importance of Sun Protection and How to Protect Your Skin Naturally

It’s a beautiful day outside, isn’t it? The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and after months, we can again see tiny little buds growing on those bare trees and people are out and about enjoying the onset of warm weather. However, while the sun may be a source of warmth and light, it can also pose some grave risks to our health. Excess exposure to the sun can lead to a whole host of issues, both short-term as well as long-term. 

We can not forget the importance of sunshine, it’s the ultimate mood booster, providing us with vitamin  D and making us feel all warm and tingly inside. However, as much as we love the sun, it’s important to remember that too much of a good thing can be harmful. The long-term effects of the sun can range from minor annoyances like tanning and sunburns to much more serious issues like skin cancer. 

Here are a few steps one must take to protect yourself from the harsh effects of the sun. 

• Cover up- Want to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun? Then it's time to cover up! A bright scarf to cover your head, or a strategically added cotton jacket can help prevent sun damage without sacrificing your personal style. Think of it as a form of self-care, you're protecting your body from harm. Sunburn is not a badge of honor, and premature aging caused by sun damage is not a good look. So cover up and show your body some love. Covering up gives you an extra layer of protection, like a coat of armor for your skin! So next time you're out in the sun, be a superhero and cover up to avoid the painful aftermath of sunburn. 

 Avoid excess sun exposure- Did you know that avoiding excessive sun exposure is crucial to protecting your skin from permanent damage? While a little bit of sun can be good for you, too much can lead to painful sunburns and long-term damage, like wrinkles, pigmentation, and age spots. It's like that saying, "Everything in moderation". So, if you're planning to spend some time outside, make sure to look out for a shaded area and wear protective clothing, like a wide-brimmed hat or long-sleeved cotton shirt. Remember that a little bit of caution can go a long way in keeping your skin looking healthy and radiant for years to come. 

• Sunglasses- Wearing those huge sunglasses is not just a fashion statement, but also a crucial way to protect your eyes from the sun. Yeah, I know, you look cool in those shades, but they are way more than just a style statement. Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UV rays that can lead to various eye issues such as cataracts, macular degeneration, etc. Plus, they prevent you from squinting and getting those pesky crow's feet or those dreaded frown lines. So, next time you're outside, make sure to wear your shades and protect your peepers. And hey, if anyone asks, tell them you're a VIP trying to avoid the paparazzi. *Wink, wink* 

• Fruits and vegetables- Eating a bowl full of fruits and vegetables can actually protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Yeah, it's like a two-for-one deal. Not only do these colorful 

foods provide essential vitamins and minerals, but they also contain antioxidants that help fight off free radicals caused by excess sun exposure. So, if you want to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant, make sure to include plenty of fruits and veggies in your diet. 

• Sleep- Did you know that getting enough sleep is actually important for protecting your skin from the harmful effects of the sun? Yeah, I know, you'd rather stay up all night binge-watching  Netflix, but hear me out. Lack of sleep can lead to stress, which can cause your skin to become more sensitive to the sun. Plus, when you're sleep-deprived, your body produces more cortisol,  which can break down collagen and elastin, the two essential components of healthy skin. So, if you want to keep your skin looking young and radiant, make sure to get those zzzs. The next time you are tempted to stay up all night, remember that beauty sleep is not just a myth, it’s a  real thing that can help protect your skin from skin damage. 

• Sunscreen- Wearing good sunblock is not just essential for the beach bums or the outdoorsy kind of people. Whether you step out of your house or even if you are cooped in all day, a good natural sunscreen is actually a crucial way to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Yeah, I know, you’d rather soak up those rays and get that golden glow, but hear me out.  Sunscreen helps to block out harmful UV rays that can cause sunburn, premature aging, and even skin cancer. Plus, with so many different formulas and scents available, there’s no excuse not to wear it! And let’s not forget about the benefits of using sunscreen in your daily routine.  Even if you are spending the day indoors, the sun’s rays can still cause damage to your skin, as they can penetrate through the windows and doors. By using natural sunscreen, you can help protect your skin from the sun while also keeping it hydrated and healthy. So, make sure to slather on that sunscreen and protect your skin. And, if anyone gives you a hard time for being a  sunscreen fanatic, just tell them you’re a responsible adult who cares about your health and well-being. Trust me, your future self will thank you for taking care of your skin today!  

Applying sunscreen is no rocket science. But here are a few tips and tricks, that can make using a natural sunscreen lotion, more effective.  

• Follow your daily CTM routine by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion.  

• Use sunscreen daily, and reapply every 4-5 hours. 

• Follow the two-finger rule to ascertain the right quantity. 

• Dab dots on your face, and rub them in a circular motion (mind the eyes). 

• Try to apply your sunscreen lotion at least 15 minutes before stepping out in the sun.

• Don’t skip your neck and ears. 

• Rub the excess lotion on your hands and feet.
