Going Beyond Sunscreen for UV Protection
January 6, 2017
Take note: In no way should you skip sunscreen. As shared in the American Academy of Dermatology, you should apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go outside and reapply consistently every two hours. Once you’ve got sunscreen on lock, you can start adding all the additional ways to prevent sunburn into your arsenal against UV rays.
Consider testing out all these ways to prevent sunburn beyond sunscreen for the ultimate UV protection.
They’re called sun hats for a reason! Protect your face with a wide-brimmed one like the Mott 50 Penelope Hat.
The chicest way to protect your shoulders is with a UPF 50 cover-up. Our favorite casual sun protected look is the Mott 50 Allison Hooded Cover-Up.
Pack an umbrella before a day out in the sun so you can access shade no matter where you are! Try a Sunbella for elegant and effective sun protection.
As shared on RadiantLifeCatalogue, coconut oil releases powerful antioxidants onto skin which “bolsters natural defenses and prevents damage from long term sun exposure.”
Natural SPF Foods
Natural SPF foods like lycopene-packed tomatoes, which, according to Women’s Health, “provide long-term protection against UV-radiation-induced effects,” can help boost your skin’s defenses.
Even hanging under a palm tree for awhile can give your body a break from the sun’s harsh rays.
