Why Protecting Your Skin From the Sun is Important

Spring is here and so is more sun! While we depend on the sun for Vitamin D and many other wonderful nourishments, we must take steps to protect our skin from overdoing it. All things in moderation, including soaking up the shiny rays in beautiful Sarasota.

These are a few good reasons why you should protect your skin from overexposure.

Why Protecting Your Skin From the Sun Is Important

Sunburns Are Not Trivial

Sure, depending on your skin type, you may be able to get away with certain indiscretions for a little while, but sunburns have a way of catching up with you over time. Especially if you have fair skin, it’s definitely not worth it.

Don’t panic if you experience sunburn or dehydrated skin, though. Colibri has several products like Pure Fiji Coconut Sugar Rub that can help with addressing skin damage.

Too Much Sun = Skin Cancer Risk

Overexposing yourself to the sun increases your chances of skin cancers like melanoma. That’s why you should take precautions by using safe sunscreens and covering your skin with hats, clothes, and utilizing shady areas outside. Even scientists who promote healthy levels of sun exposure recommend not overdoing it and only using sunscreen products without toxic chemicals that screen for ultraviolet-A rays.

Avoid Premature Skin Aging

While we’re happy to help our clients reverse the effects of premature skin aging and sagging, some of the problems are avoidable by reducing your sun exposure. Too much sun can lead to more wrinkles and a loss of the skin’s natural elasticity.

Avoid Sunspots, Hyperpigmentation, and Over-Tanned Skin

You can also exacerbate other skin conditions like redness, itchy skin, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation. It’s one thing for your skin to be a little pink after a short sunny excursion, but the real danger comes for those already suffering from serious skin damage. Excessive sun exposure multiplies many problems.

We hope that reviewing these ideas proves resourceful for you. It’s only Spring now, but hotter/sunnier weather is right around the corner. For more on how to prepare, check out the Summer Skin Survival Tips blog post from last year.
