5 Ways to Stay Safe Under the Sun to Prevent Skin Cancer

Skin cancer has become a growing concern for the world as tanning becomes increasingly popular. Here are 5 simple and effective ways to prevent skin cancer and stay protected under the sun. 

1. Use a sunscreen whenever you go out

Don`t neglect those cloudy days because around 80% of the rays do penetrate. There can be damaging rays even on the cloudiest days that isn`t visible to the eye. Apply at least an SPF of 15 for cloudy days and SPF 30 for sunny days.

2. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen

This means it blocks both UVA and UVB rays. So do look for sunscreens that target both rays as they both can be damaging

3. Use an oil free or non-greasy formula

The worst thing you want is to look greasy, waxy and white all over. Choose a non-greasy formula that can be easily absorbed into the skin. This will also prevent clogging of pores and breakouts.

4. Reapply often

Even the strongest SPF sunscreen requires constant reapplication. I would recommend reapplying at least once every 1-2 hours depending on the intensity of the rays. Please don`t be lazy. Research also states that an average individual only applies 30% of the effective dose of sunscreen so please apply a generous amount to your body before heading out.

5. Incorporate SPF into your daily skincare routine

Tinted moisturizers are the hype right now and some of them have SPF 30 which is very impressive as it does the trick of 3; moisturizer, light coverage foundation and sunscreen. Other than that, a finishing power or foundation with SPF 15 is sufficient for cloudy days. A moisturizer with an SPF of 30 can also be used during the day time to kill two birds with one stone.

My Personal Recommendations

Shiseido Ultimate Sunscreen Protection SPF 55 – Winner of Sephora`s sunscreen award. Best sunscreen I`ve tried personally.

La Roche Posay and Vichy Sunscreen- Great texture, broad spectrum, easy to apply and relatively affordable.

Clarins UV PLUS Protective Day Screen SPF 40 Oil Free- It`s oil free and feels like a moisturizer. It has great protection and is small to fit in the purse. Great on the go sun screen.

Clinique City Block Oil Free Face Protector SPF 40 or 25- Love the tint in this sunscreen along with its non-conventional smooth and light texture. It does even out the skin tone a bit without looking greasy.
