The heat is on as the first week of summer sets in!  Finally it’s hot enough to unwind outside with a cool drink and let the sun warm your body.  If you’re anything like me, your relaxation spot is in the clean, fresh air instead of next to a freezing, noisy air conditioner.  However, if you are like me, that also means you’re pretty pale, and your time outdoors can be easily ruined with the threat of a nasty sunburn!

Of course, that doesn’t mean I’ll be giving up my time in the sun – after all, summer only comes once a year.  A nice glowing tan is healthy and easy to obtain with the right sun protection!  I know I sure have been “waiting for the sun”!

So, I used PCHSearch&Win to find some sun safety tips to save my skin and my summer so I can feel like I’m “walking on sunshine”.  Here’s what I found!

  • The sun is strongest between 10AM and 4PM, so be extra careful outside during that time!
  • As much as we love to flaunt our new trendy swimsuits (especially the ladies), wearing sun protective clothing when you’re not in the water is the best way to prevent skin damage.
  • Apply recommended amounts of sunscreen with a sunburn protection factor (SPF) of 30 or above to all exposed skin – ALWAYS!

  • Look for sunscreens that provide broad-spectrum protection, which means protection against both UVB and UVA rays. That includes products that provide an SPF of at least 15 and contain ingredients like Avobenzone or zinc oxide.  You can use PCHSearch&Win to find out where you can buy these products!
  • REAPPLY sunscreen at least every two hours, or as needed – especially after swimming or perspiring on a “bright, sun-shiny day”!
  • If you DO get a sunburn, (let’s face it, some of us just need the shade!) treat it with a cool compress and products such as aloe vera or petroleum jelly. These may help cool your skin and decrease pain and redness.

And one fun (and astonishing) fact!

  • According to NASA, the surface temperature of the sun is about 5,780 K, which is 5,500 °C or about 9900 °F.  The temperature the core is around 15 MILLION °C or 27 MILLION °F.  I know I’ll remember that before getting my tan on for too long!

Follow these protective sun safety tips and don’t be afraid to “let the sunshine in”!

Happy Summer!

    way too late now. I had skin cancer this summer. About this time you were rolling down the streets. I’m 51 now and it came from all the fun I had during my 20’s and 30’s when I thought it made me look healthy. Now I can’t let that part out in the sun. Don’t want too. But the beach is my church. Another subject….
