Prolonged exposure to the sun can bring about a number of negative changes to your skin. Not only will it accelerate the aging process, it can also cause you to develop rough, leathery skin, a blotchy complexion, and even skin cancer. With comprehensive sun protection, however, you can prevent many of the changes to your skin that are caused by the sun.
In order to maintain your pristine skin, you should make sure to follow these tips:
• Avoid tanning outdoors and using indoor tanning beds.
• Avoid long-term exposure to the sun during its peak hours, which are between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
• Wear protective clothing when you are outdoors during the day.
• Always apply sunscreen to every exposed part of your body when you’re preparing to go outside.
