Take regular breaks indoors to minimize the time exposed to the sun�s UV rays, this can prevent severe sunburn and other problems associated with it. Limit time spent in full sunlight between 10am and 4pm which is when the sun is directly overhead meaning more UV rays. Wear dark colored clothing and long sleeved ones if possible to lower the amount of skin that is exposed to the sun. Use sunscreen and follow the application timeframe to maximize effectivity and choose broad spectrum sunscreen for maximum protection

The other new skin protection compounds are Avobenzone and Oxybenzone along with the more traditional Titanium dioxide and Zinc oxide (which is seen as the white stuff on the noses of lifeguards and cricket players) which have been in use for a long time to combat these harmful ultraviolet rays that have the potential to damage skin. Most of the older products have a pre-soaking time for they have to given enough time to sink into the skin’s pores for them to offer the best level of protection.

1. Drink lots of water. Our body is composed of 75% water. We need to keep our cells hydrated to keep the skin supple and to prevent the cells from aging fast.
2. Use sunscreen. Protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Increasing cases of skin cancer are reported every year. Use SPF 15 for 15 20–30 years old and use SPF 35 and above for those more than 30 years old.
3. Watch what you eat. Eat a healthy balanced diet every meal. Avoid fatty food, which is rich in Omega 6—this clogs the arteries that might cause further sickness.

winter.jpgWinter is not only cold but harsh and brutal to your skin. Add up wind, cold weather and UV rays that reflects off the white snow back onto your face it is quite a challenge to maintain the glow of your skin in the winter months. Sun block on most unprotected parts of your body (which should be a small area for you are likely to be a bundle of warm clothing) ensure that the sun�s rays that do get through are not causing any damage. A hot shower might be appealing but take them for short periods only for they tend to take away the natural oils and lipids from the skin�s surface leaving it dry as bone. See the dermatologist at once if dry skin, irritation and other skin problems arise to prevent it from spreading and to alleviate the discomfort.

This is a more specific name for aging from the inside (hence the name), which is more due to our genes which can indeed influence the speed at which we age. Though all of us are going to age at some time in our adult life, it is part of the process but you can maintain younger looking skin with a proper balance of foods rich in anti-oxidants such as berries and other identified super foods. These foods contain active compounds that counteracts the damage caused by free radicals, or compounds which causes premature aging in cells eventually leading to death. There are also some genetic problems that does hasten such aging that causes cell sof the body to die prematurely.

It’s that time of year again, when the sun peaks through and your skin soaks it all up like a sponge. Sure you’ll get a nice tan, but the sun’s harmful rays will affect your skin, and when it does, that tan won’t even be worth it. Here’s how to protect your sensitive skin from that powerful sun.
Most people think that an SPF 30 or more will completely shield them from the sun’s damaging rays. Wrong. SPF only refers to UVB rays, which is the shorter end of the sun’s spectrum of light that causes sunburns. The longer rays, which are called UVA, are only filtered out by some sunscreens, not all. Since UVA rays are not harmful instantly, they do damage in the long run, and companies are now working to bring out sunscreens that contain protection against UVA rays as well.

Do you know who the best people are when it comes to protecting your skin from the sun? They are the Asians of course. 30 degrees and up is their temperature most of the time, but they still got a fair skin and beauty that cant be compare. So when I had my opportunity to go to Thailand, I made it sure to learn Thai to interview some of the women there. And this is what I’ve found out. There are various ways to protect your skin when you are under the sun. Here are some of them.

1. Avoid direct sunlight during 10am to 2pm; it is the time of the day where the sunlight is too strong to be resisted by our skin. However, if you really need to go during these hours, you may use sun block high in SPF, long sleeves and a hat with a brim to protect your skin.
2. Using moisturizer with SPF protection is a great way to reduce skin wrinkles and aging signs.
3. Cover your entire face, nose, ears, forehead and even your lips too, with proper sunscreen protection. SPF 15 is a good choice but SPF 30 is better.
4. For sensitive skin, a Foundation with SPF protection is the best makeup solution to use for protecting your face from the sun.
5. Skin around your eyes is also sensitive to sunlight. It can be easily damage and are very prone to fine lines. It’s advisable to use a sunscreen stick or Mineral Makeup Powder in protecting areas around your eyes.

Having a healthy skin doesn’t mean spending your life hiding on the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun, dust, pollution and harmful situations. You can surely enjoy outdoors activity as long as you know how to keep your skin safe, healthy and always young. So follow the simple tips above and have beautiful skin.
