Healthy Challenge - Day #6 -- Protect Your Skin

Protect your skin!

It is a beautiful day outside and I seriously wish I was outside in the sunshine. A nice blanket on the lawn with a good book sounds like the perfect way to spend the day. But not without some protection first.

Harmful UV rays can lead to serious skin problems like cancer. Wear sunscreen and be very careful with tanning. Having a tan body will not make having cancer better. Over tanning leads to early wrinkling also! It's no fun to be in your 40s and look like you're in your 60s.

Does that look healthy to you??

Look at the make-up you are using, does it have an added SPF? if so that's great! If not, then maybe consider switching to something that will give you some protection.

Give special care to children in the sun. Reapply lotion often and have a good place in the shade to relax.

What are your favorite sunshine activities?
