4 Easy Ways To Protect Yourself From Sun
There are many ways to protect your skin against the harmful rays of the sun and the easiest and common ways are detailed below.
- Cover yourself – The simplest advice anyone can give you is to cover yourself up properly while stepping out in the sun. whether we talk of daily sun exposure or we talk of sun exposure on specific days like on holidays and during travel, the best way to keep the sun rays at bay is to cover up. You can wear long sleeved clothes on sunny days and if you drive a two wheeler, it is very necessary to wear gloves. Wear shoes that cover the feet completely. Face and hair need to be covered with a stole or a scarf as well. Also, focus should be on covering the entire face along with the neck and the head as well. Covering just the face and not the head is not a great idea as the heat wave can hit the head. Also, our hair too needs to be protected from the sun.
- Avoid the sun as far as possible – If you have a choice, try to step out only in the evening and not during the peak hours of sunlight which are between 12 to 4. If you can stay indoors during these hours, it will be good for you and you will be safe from the strongest of sun rays.
- Be careful even on cloudy days – Now sun exposure can happen even on days when you actually do not see the sun. Thereby meaning that even if the sun is not visible, it can still cause tanning and other sun burns because the clouds do not stop all of the sun’s rays.
