Ouch! Everyone konws the painfulness of a sunburn. Perhaps you enjoyed a little too much fun in the sun over the 4th of July Holiday or out waterskiing, hiking or other weekend warrior events. Not hard to do with all the activities of summer. Exposure like that can cause your skin to burn and dry out from harmful UV rays of the sun. Watkins After Sun Gel is great to recuperate by with moisturizing aloe vera and pain relieving lidocaine in a 98.5% all natural lotion. Just what the experts recommend to get your skin back on track.
And before your next outing try Watkins SPF 30 Sunscreen, specificially formulated to naturally protect against UV A, B and C rays. Watkins Sunscreen is PABA free, with shea butter essential ingredients and FDA approved titanium dioxide which works to help scatter harmful UV A and B rays. With great ingredients like that we’ve got you covered!
Here are some tips from Natures’ Heritage staff to help you avoid painful sunburns this summer–
1. Try to avoid the sun between 10 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon when the sun’s rays are the strongest. If you have to be out during this time, stay in shade as much as possible and try and limit your time in the sun.
2. Stay covered as much as possible. Wear clothes that cover your legs and arms. Wear a broad-brimmed hat. Sun visors and baseball caps are good, but a wide brimmed hat is better for providing protection.
3. Use sunscreen often, as in apply every 2 hours, whether the sun is out or not. The sun’s rays can even penetrate cloud cover and hazy conditions resulting in a sunburn also. Learn how to apply sunscreen correctly and replenish often. Often people apply sunscreen just before going out when it should have been applied 30 minutes prior to departure for best results. Use a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or higher for maximum effect and one that provides protection from all three types of UV rays–A, B and C!
4. Wear sunglasses. The skin around your eyes is extremely delicate. You can prevent sunburn around this area by wearing sunglasses everytime you go out or leave your place in the shade. Many experts recommend that you use sunglasses which block 99 to 100 percent of UV sunlight and have wraparound features to avoid sunlight entering from different angles around your eyes.
So enjoy your time in the sun this summer, but take care not to burn–
