When you look like you have a tank top on when you in fact do not... it means the winter sun was way too strong ... and you were not prepared 🤦♀️
I had not had a burn like this since college when I burned my eyelids .. yeah, you read that right 😳
So... stock up on some safe-for-you sun protection! No matter where you live or the tone of your skin... we all need protection from the damaging rays of the sun! .
Some ways to protect your skin naturally are: ☀️ wear protective clothing ☀️seek shade ☀️use sunscreen (*our favorites below!)
☀️wear a wide brimmed hat ☀️wear UV protecting sunglasses
☀️avoid tanning beds/sun lamps
☀️protect kids skin (reapply often!)
While no sunscreen protects fully from the strong rays of the sun, there are ways to make it work well! .
Follow the directions, know how SPF works hint: a high SPF doesn’t mean it works the best .. it just means it will protect you that many past your skin’s normal burn rate. What does that mean?! It means you need to reapply often and know your body and skin.. some (like me) burn faster than others! .
Check your labels! Two things, expiration date and harsh chemicals!!! If we are protecting our skin, probably best not to damage it in another way.. after all, our skin is our largest organ.. what goes on, goes in.. as in in our bloodstream! .
Speaking of harsh chemical free sun protection.. did you know Young Living has a great mineral sunscreen?! And thankfully, an aftersun spray for when we over do it.. accidentally of course 🤦♀️ swipe over to see the pics and why they are a great choice! If you need help ordering some, I’m here to help, or just click the link in bio! .
Vitamin D is important to health! So, while it is important to get our dose of sunshine, be careful not to over do it with long periods of time in direct view on sunny days! (Talking to myself here too... obviously!) .
