While the sun’s rays might not feel as strong as the weather cools down and we pack away the bathing suits, staying vigilant about sun protection is something that should be followed regardless of the season or temperature.
UV levels are known to vary between climates and geography, but the damaging effects can still harm your skin, from causing premature aging to increasing the risk of skin cancer, the most prevalent form of cancer in the United States. Further, UV light reflects off clouds and snow, so even on days when you think it may be safe to skip skincare protection, you should really be mindful of getting extra exposure.
Nurturing your skin from the inside-out
Besides using sunscreen and/or wearing a hat when spending time outdoors, you can also help protect your skin by taking a proactive approach and improving the overall health of your skin.
- Establish a good skincare routine by cleansing and moisturizing in the morning and evening.
- Drink plenty of water helps to flush toxins from your system and hydrate the skin, and eat a balanced diet that provides nutrients, vitamins and healthy fuel for your body.
- Regular exercise promotes blood flow and oxygen to the skin.
- Lack of sleep and excessive stress take a toll on your skin, so get your rest and find ways to relax.
- Don’t forget about herbal and homeopathic remedies, which support the body’s ability to promote health on a cellular level for systemic well-being, including your skin!
