Just because summer is coming to an end, does not mean you stop protecting your skin! Soaking up some sun at a fall festival or simply taking a walk outside can help you to receive an essential dose of Vitamin D, but you still need to take precautions. Follow these tips to take care of your skin this fall – and in every season:
- DO regularly receive 15-20 minutes of midday sun exposure, exposing as much of the skin as possible while being careful not to burn.
- DO wear sunscreen. Sunny, Cloudly, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter – always! Wear sunscreen that is non-toxic and free of dyes, fragrance, and chemical irritants. Tinted sunscreen is another product that protects your skin and which a touch of color.
- DO wear a hat! The skin around your eyes and face is thinner than the rest of your body. Protect your skin by keeping your eyes shaded with a hat.
- DON’T over expose your skin to the sun! Just because temperatures are lower, doesn’t mean you won’t burn or damage your skin. Too much sun speeds up your skin’s aging process and causes wrinkles, sun spots and damage. If you did soak up too much sun, Photofacials are a way to keep skin healthy and helps to remove sun spots or other pigmentation irregularities.
