Let the Sunshine in!

Let the Sunshine in!

We can’t help but associate summer sunshine with all things happy. Childhood memories with our best friends. Lazy days at the beach. Enjoying a delicious ice cream under the shadow of a tree. Α romantic summer love. But those idyllic images have been tarnished with the ugly reality of sun damage. Wrinkles, burning  and in some extreme cases, skin cancer.  It seems, like the ultimate betrayal. How can something that makes us feel so good, be so bad? Well, this does not have to be the case. Protect yourself and enjoy only the good side of the sun. Do it right and you can forget its “dark side”.

The right application

Even the most technologically advanced sun screen will not protect you if you don’t apply it right. Follow these steps.


Step 1 Coat your face and body, before you go outside

You don’t want to get to the beach, spend time setting up your towel and your umbrella and then sit down to put sunscreen. If you do that, you have already damaged your skin. Sunscreens take 20 minutes to seep into the skin to protect you properly. Always, apply before you leave the house


Step 2 Use it liberally

Unlike other face creams, a little does NOT go a long way, when it comes to sunscreens. If you don’t put the sufficient amount what you think is SPF 30 might turn to SPF 3 or 4. Dermatologists recommend a full one shot glass on your body, one teaspoon on your face and another teaspoon on your neck.


Step 3 Reapply it often

Every time you sweat, or swim, or dry your face you need to re apply your sunscreen. It does not matter if the label says “all day protection” or SPF 486,  you still need to re apply it every 2 to 4 hours even if you don’t swim.

Professional Tip: Remember that a sunscreen should be used winter and summer, in the city or the beach.
