How To Avoid Age Spots On Holiday
Do you dread that those unattractive age spots will in the course of time manifest on your skin? Is it petrifying just imagining yourself applying concealer on your skin just so you can hide those age spots? Don’t you want to experience the stress of wasting a lot of money just so your skin can return to its clear, radiant state? Or do you worry that complications, even though how insignificant they may be, might arise from these treatments? If all your answers are affirmative, protect your skin starting now!
So how do you avoid age spots? Easy: do not allow the sun harm your skin. Do not allow penetration of the sun’s ultraviolet rays into your skin. But how do you do this when you are on holiday? Should you just wait until the sun comes down before you swim or parade your new swimsuit? Or should you just completely forget the thought of swimming in the waters? That should not be the scenario! All you have to do is conform with these guidelines below to avoid age spots.
Since you are going for a get-away, you have to prepare all the things that you will need. Sunscreen should be the number one on your to-bring list whatever your vacation plans might be. Make sure to read the label when buying sunscreens. See if that sunscreen you are holding contains titanium dioxide. This is evidence that this sunscreen is a broad-spectrum sunscreen which reflects both UVA and UVB rays. Lastly, make sure it has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least fifteen.
Now, before exposing yourself to the sun, do not let slip from your memory to apply the sunscreen onto every part of your body, most especially the face. Do this twenty to thirty minutes prior to heading outdoors. Sometimes, it may be less than or more than twenty to thirty minutes, depending on the creator of the sunscreen. Still following the label, reapply the lotion as necessary. Most sunscreens are reapplied after one or two hours. Well, you should not really hold back until sunset, but waiting until you reach a later time, might help in better protecting your skin. The sun is at its most damaging strength from ten in the morning until three in the afternoon. It is therefore preferred not to go out during this time. If your holiday vacation involves other activities but swimming, you should wear clothing that can cover almost everything, if not all parts of your body.
If you cannot avoid your skin’s exposure to the sun, do not forget these recommendations. And even if you would just be loitering inside your house, use a sunscreen but with a sun protection factor of at least five to ten. So, if you are that petrified of having age spots, remember and follow this article by heart!
