When summer begins, all women want to be all beautiful and tanned. This obsession for a chocolate-like skin can become a real issue when a person does not take the necessary safety precautions. Sun damage that can be caused due to the continuous exposure may lead to skin deformation, darkening patches, age spots, and lip spots. Chronic sun exposure may also lead to skin cancer.
Permanent Sun Damage
Las Vegas sun may seem innocent. However, each person must follow doctors’ instructions and avoid being exposed many hours to ultraviolet sun rays. If you have already been soaked under the sun for many hours, then you should schedule an appointment with your doctor, in order to make sure no bad effects have been caused.
However fun it may be to lie on the summer warmth and enjoy the sun, you should always keep in mind that due to the environmental pollution, the sun is now dangerous for all people exposed to it.
Proper Selection of Sunscreen
Before considering your Las Vegas vacation, or the sun beds that are waiting for you, you must choose the proper sunscreen. Each sunscreen has a number indication, which is actually very helpful. For instance, if a sunscreen has the number 20 on it, it means that you have an extra 20 minutes time in the sun before you risk any sun damage.
Therefore, with that in mind, you may choose a sunscreen according to your specific needs. The idea is to purchase a body sunscreen with indication above 20 if you are planning to have a daily sun exposure. As for your face, it is best to choose a sunscreen with SPF indication of 50, since the face area is always more exposed and sensitive. Another tip you should keep in mind is always applying a thick layer of sunscreen. Don’t forget to reapply often and enjoy the sun while minimizing any sun damage risk.
Sun Damage and Tanning
Many people think that if they use sunscreen, they will not get as tanned as they want. This is entirely wrong since the sunscreen protects the skin from any permanent sun damage without preventing it from getting tanned.
For even faster and more impressive results, there are sunscreens with great sun protection as well as high carotene levels that help your skin get the desired summer tanned.
Treat Sun Damage
Even if you used sunscreen, there is still a chance to experience even minor sunburn. Try to keep the area cool with water and moisturizing creams. Aloe Vera will perform miracles on your sun damaged skin. If you don’t have any moisturizing creams, even yogurt can really help you with this severe discomfort. Once your skin starts to peel, don’t stop applying moisturizing cream, until the whole burnt area disappears.
Especially in Las Vegas, you can find many alternative solutions so that you can wear your summer white dress with confidence! Spray tans or moisturizers are a perfect alternative for those who do not wish to spend their time under the sun.
However, if you want to enjoy the sun or a fun walk, always use the right sunscreen so that you can protect your delicate skin!
