The sensational season of summer means we spend more time outdoors soaking up the sun. Sounds ideal, doesn’t it? But while you may be having a glorious time, it's important to remember your skin and body needs some vital protection. UVA and UVB rays are not only linked to DNA damage and cancer but can increase signs of ageing such as lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. Here are our top summer essentials to keep yourself healthy this summer without compromising on fun!
The golden rule of skincare. Reduce the risk of sunburn and sun damage to your skin by using at least a factor 30 on your face every day. Even if it's cloudy, UV rays can still penetrate through the clouds and windows. Maximum protection can prevent sunburn, pigmentation and long-term damage.
Nourish your body throughout Summer
Keep your body healthy with plenty of water and indulge in all those delicious fresh fruits and veggies. Take full advantage of the seasonal produce and fill your diet with nutrient-rich foods. Enjoy vibrant salads, smoothies, and grilled vegetables to keep your body fuelled and hydrated throughout the sunny days. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C can help to prevent the sun's damaging effects, so by increasing your intake of Vitamin C with foods such as fresh oranges, berries and tomatoes your can boost your antioxidant levels and protect your skin.
Avoid Excessive Sunbathing
Find that balance between getting plenty of Vitamin D, and avoiding excessive sun exposure. Prolonged periods of time in the heat can cause sunburn, premature ageing as well as long-term skin damage. Safeguarding your skin goes beyond only wearing SPF.
Find alternative ways to enjoy the outdoors, such as going for walks, having picnics in shaded areas, or heading outside earlier in the morning, or later in the day when the sun is less intense.
