Protecting your skin from the sun
Let’s talk about sunscreen, seems like summer time is the only time department stores have sunscreen out and ready for the masses to buy but really the importance of sunscreen should be recognized more. Sun screen is not just a summer special it is a year round importance. People of all skin colors get skin cancer. The American Academy of Dermatology states that more than 3.5 million skin cancers in more than 2 million people are diagnosed annually, most of which could have been prevented with the right protection and precautionary measures.
“But fall is approaching why do I need to buy that now?” Because protection whether it is the summer sun or a cloudy fall day is imperative for the health of your skin. A whopping 80% of the suns damaging rays can pass through the clouds. An interesting fact you are able to find at www.aad.org, is that snow and sand increase the need for sun protection. Snow reflects 80% for the sun’s rays and sand reflects 25% causing you more harm then you were most likely aware of.
