How to take care of the skin and skin during the summer

Arabia Weather - It's easy to forget about summer skincare when we enjoy spending time outdoors, like spending time at the pool or at the beach, cycling or hiking trails, or playing any outdoor sport.

You have to use sunscreen regularly, summer skin care is something you should keep close attention to.

It's no secret that the sun carries extremely harmful UVA-UVB rays on your skin, which makes it hard to believe that many people ignore the damage the sun can do to their bodies. Sun damage causes aging and, of course, different types of cancer. Taking proper precautions for summer skin care is the only way.

Summer skin care requires you to be aware of the sun protection factors (SPF).

Choose the SPF level for your skin carefully. SPF indicates the amount of time you can stay in the sun with a certain level of sunshine, for example SPF 15 means you can stay in the sun 15 times longer than what you normally do, So for someone who starts getting sunburned after 10 minutes, using an SPF of 15 allows for 150 minutes of protection.

While using an SPF of 15 is a good start, you should use an SPF of 30 if you plan on spending longer periods of time outdoors.

Sun protection rules:

Sunscreen only works if used correctly. Follow these tips to take care of your skin to protect your body and your health:

  • Make sure to apply sunscreen 30 minutes before outdoors.
  • Apply sunscreen every two hours, regardless of the SPF level, as over time, the amount of sunscreen on contact with the body, towels, or sweat decreases.
  • Use sunscreen on all parts of the body, don't forget your ears, head, hands and feet, and use lip balm with sun protection to protect your lips.
  • Remember that cotton clothes protect from the sun, but not as much as SPF 15. So, even if you wear cotton clothes, use sunscreen.
  • Know that waterproof sunscreen may not be as opaque as you think, so apply more after swimming or sweating.
  • Use an appropriate amount of condom every two hours. Approximately an ounce should be applied. If you use not enough, it is as if you have not used anything. And put a small additional amount of it on the most vulnerable areas such as the face.
  • Check and make sure of the exact date before which it is recommended to use the sunscreen, as the sunscreen loses its effectiveness over time. And leaving it in hot places may threaten its strength and effectiveness.
  • Use a higher SPF if you use insect repellent sprays, as they can reduce the effectiveness of your sunscreen.
  • Use only baby sunscreens to protect your baby's skin.
