Summer usually means tanning, sun-burnt skin, hair loss, etc. But that need not be the case all the time.
Due to the potential toxicity associated with prolonged use of metal oxide nanoparticle sunscreens, it is necessary to seek alternative ingredients that are non-toxic, biodegradable and effective at blocking UV. Look for broad-spectrum protection from zinc oxide combined with organic ingredients including anti-oxidants.
You can overcome those problems by applying some tips and tricks that ensure the heat doesn't get to you.
Tips to prevent sunburn And Alternative Methods of Protection
Do not forget that even"healthier" sunscreen contains inorganic materials absorbed by ourbodies and they only provide partial protection from the sun.
Additional ways we can protectour skin:
1. Wear the right clothing, suchas long sleeves, pants and wide-brimmed hats.
2. Sunglasses with UV absorptionup to 400 nm and wraparound styles protect best.
3. Shade is your friend! Don'tforget to bring a shade structure/umbrella to outdoor events in case shade cannot be found.
4. Play or work outside early or late and limit time outdoors 10am-4pm.
5. Avoid getting burned and get out of the sun immediately if you notice redness.
6. Know the UV Index for yourarea (calculated by the National Weather Service.) The Environmental Protection Agency websitewill provide this information and updated sun protection http://messages.www.epa.gov/suns...
7. Remember that water reflectsand amplifies UV rays.
8. Plant trees in your yard onthe South and West sides.
9. Keep hydrated and stay cool toavoid sun-stroke.
10. Share sun safety knowledge with those you love.
11. Watch the clock - The sun's rays are strongest between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you can't stay indoors during that block of time, at least stick to shady spots.
12. Wear the right clothes - When you have to be outdoors, wear sun-protective clothing, such as: broad-brimmed hat, long-sleeved shirt and pants.
13. Use sunscreen - Cover any exposed areas of skin liberally with at least one ounce of broad-spectrum sunscreen. That means sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
The sunscreen should have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. Follow these tips for applying sunscreen:
Apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before you go outside.
Use sunscreen even on overcast days because UV rays can penetrate clouds.
14. Take frequent showers to help relieve the pain. As soon as you get out of the bathtub or shower, gently pat yourself dry, but leave a little water on your skin. Then, apply a moisturizer to help trap the water in your skin. This can help ease the dryness.
15. Drink extra water - Sunburn draws fluid to the skin's surface and away from the rest of the body.
Drinking extra water when you are sunburned helps prevent dehydration.
