After a long cold winter it’s hard not to shed our layers and bask in the glorious heat of the sun and to shower our skin in the warmth of its rays. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take any precautions. Everyone knows that too much sun exposure can be harmful, to our eyes, your skin, to our youthful appearance and to our health.Safe in the Sun Effects of Sun on Your Body Sunburn
Experts recommend getting your sunshine vitamin safely. To get enough vitamin D, minus the risk of UV exposure, the Canadian Dermatology Association recommends taking a daily vitamin D supplement of 1000 IU. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any vitamins or supplements.
Cosmetics with SPF should not be used for primary sun protection. Sun protection needs to be reapplied often- more often than your makeup. Remember to wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses, and apply SPF30+ sunscreen!
