It’s burning up out there, but don’t let your skin take the heavy hit! Make sure to protect yourself this season using these three useful tips.
1) Wear a hat when in direct sunlight. Rep Hopkins and sport your lacrosse cap while lounging on the Beach! Excessive exposure to sunlight on your face can cause pre-mature aging… don’t want wrinkles when you’re 35? Wear a hat!
2) Sit in the shade between prime sun hours between 10 AM and 4 PM. That way, you still get the benefit of being outdoors, but don’t have to deal with the all the nasty repercussions of a sunburn.
3) Wear Sunscreen. Yes, sometimes it’s annoying, but sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 is a fantastic way to avoid sun burns, age spots, and helps to reduce the risk of skin cancer. Make sure to reapply if you’ve gotten wet and about every 3 hours if you’ve been in the sun for a long time!
