Welcome to part 2 of our sunburn prevention series! Sunburns can create premature aging, skin damage, wrinkles & even skin cancer. That’s why it’s important to prevent sunburns at all costs! Do you know more ways to PREVENT Sunburns?

While sunscreen is your obvious answer, there are a few other ways you can prevent sunburns, too! ⁠

🎩Hats, hats & more hats. Wear hats when you’re outside – wide brims, specifically, but hats with any kind of brim or bill will be beneficial. ⁠

☁️Don’t underestimate the suns power, even on cloudy days! Those UV rays can penetrate those clouds, and you won’t even realize it until it’s too late. ⁠This also includes winter time. The snow reflects 80% fo the suns rays, making you just as susceptible to sun damage during the winter as the summer! ⁠

☀️Avoid being outside when the sun its at its highest peak (usually 10am-4pm-ish) ⁠

🌳Spend as much time in the shade as possible – and be sure to wear your SPF, even in the shade!⁠

🕶️Don’t forget those 👀! Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, too! ⁠

Wearing clothing with long sleeves and pants can help, too, but be sure the suns rays can’t penetrate through them – I’ve seen sunburns in the pattern of the weave of the clothing a person was wearing, too!
