As spring and summer come back onto the scene, it is the perfect time to keep your skin safe in the sun. Whether you are looking to spend days on the beach, or other exciting ways to get outside, the sun can harm your skin everywhere. Skin health can look different for everyone. That is why it is crucial to incorporate other ways to fit your lifestyle and skin. 

Keep Your Skin Safe In The Sun 

Most people only think about protecting their skin once they are in the sun. However, the most effective way to protect your skin from the sun is to keep it healthy all year. That means there are preventative and constant methods to keeping your skin safe in the sun. At IOP Beach Chair Co., we are dedicated to giving you helpful information about skin health and even supplying some methods of protection of our own. 

Put On Sunscreen

We all know by now that the most important protection from the sun is sunscreen. There is a variety of SPFs to choose from, and you can find the brand that works best for you. We know even the smell of sunscreen is often an important factor to consider.  

The Mayo Clinic provides helpful tips on choosing a sunscreen. When you are deciding on sunscreen, it should be a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least 15 SPF. This should be applied generously and reapplied often. It is recommended to reapply every two hours, but if you are swimming or sweating, it should occur more often. 

Find Shade When You’re Outside

The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you are outside during this time, be mindful of finding shade, even if you have already applied sunscreen as well. Those moments spent out of the sun give your skin a chance to escape the powerful rays that could have otherwise harmed it.  

One great way to find shade at the beach is to consider one of our beach chair packages. Starting at just $26 a day, you can reserve chairs and an umbrella for your trip to the beach. Our website makes them easy to reserve here, where you will be walked through the process and finish it all in one sitting. You will not have to worry about finding shade on your trip to the beach because we will supply it for you! 

Maintain A Healthy Skincare Routine Year-Round

While the decisions made day-of are very important, you can start protecting your skin from the sun any time of year. By creating a skincare routine that keeps your skin healthy, you are giving it the care it deserves without only protecting it when the times in the sun come around. Moisturizers, lotions, cleansers, and everything in between give your skin a healthy glow before you ever have to worry about the effects of the sun as well. 

Choose A Diet That Is Good For Your Skin

Another tip that the Mayo Clinic provides for maintaining healthy skin in the sun, and all the time is paying attention to diet. There are certain foods that can make your skin feel healthy and ready to take on the sun safely. While working on a healthy diet, staying hydrated also does wonders for your skin in the sun. Water is something to keep your skin safe in the sun, along with your entire body. The feeling of dehydration is unpleasant for anyone. Make sure you drink plenty of water before you know you are going to be spending a lot of time in the sun, along with during the time you are out there.
