3 Ways to Protect Your Skin From the Sun

How do you protect your skin from the giant star in the center of our solar system?

Do you think 93 million miles is far away enough from something to have no effect on you? Normally, you’d be correct. But when that thing is 4.4 nonillion pounds (or a four followed by THIRTY zeros) and also induces nuclear fusion at its core, you’re going to feel a little heat. While the sun’s rays may feel good, they’re no friend to your skin. The sun produces ultraviolet rays which are harmful to your cells and give you wrinkles, age spots, and they’re the top cause of skin cancer. Poetic, isn’t it? The thing that we depend on for life can also take it away. Is there a way to stop this? Luckily for us, science has pulled through again and offered a solution to this problem! Here are three ways to protect your skin from the sun.

How to Protect Your Skin From the Sun

  1. Wear sunscreen every day in all weather conditions and every season. We know it may sound like overkill, but ultraviolet (UV) rays penetrate through clouds and penetrate deep into your skin to cause slight mutations in your DNA, which could lead to cancer.
  2. Wear sunglasses with total UV protection. Unless you want searing pain in your eyeballs, you can’t apply sunscreen to them. Quality sunglasses will do the trick and block the harmful UV rays from damaging your eyes.
  3. Check your skin regularly and spot for any weird spots, growths, and freckles; they could be a sign of skin cancer.

Skin cancer is a very serious problem you should not take lightly. It’s important to protect yourself from it as much as possible. Do you have the correct health insurance plan for your current or future needs? Contact Stromsoe Insurance Agency for a tailored policy to suit you in California.
