Does the thought of witnessing those dark spots on your skin one fateful day alarm you? Is it petrifying just imagining yourself applying concealer on your skin just so you can hide those age spots? Don’t you want to experience the pressure of wasting a lot of money just so your skin can return to its clear, radiant state? Or don’t you want to cope with any complications, even the most minor of them all, that age spot treatments might bring about? If you answered yes to all of these questions, you should start protecting your skin as early as now!

How then do you defend your skin? Simple: do not allow the sun harm your skin. Do not allow infiltration of the sun’s ultraviolet rays into your skin. But if it is summer and you cannot stop yourself from going out under the sun, how can you keep your skin defended? Should you just wait until the light is gone when no one can no longer behold that swimsuit or when it is not that safe anymore to swim? Or should you just not swim at all? No, you should not permit these conditions (to) happen! You just have to follow some of these basic instructions.

Since you are going for a get-away, you have to prepare all the things that you will need. Sunscreen should be the number one on your to-bring list whatever your vacation plans might be. Make sure to read the label when buying sunscreens. Find the term titanium dioxide in its list of ingredients. This is evidence that this sunscreen is a broad-spectrum sunscreen which reflects both UVA and UVB rays. Moreover, see to it that its sun protection factor or SPF is fifteen at the minimum.

Now, before you permit the ultraviolet rays to touch your skin, use your sunscreen all over your body, leaving no stone unturned. Do this twenty to thirty minutes prior to heading outdoors. But this is not a constant duration for the instructions on the sunscreens’ labels might differ. You also have to reapply every now and then depending still on the instructions on the label. Reapplication is done every after one or two hours, most of the time. Though you should not let the sun to be totally out of the skies, it is still better to expose your skin in the late afternoon. The time at which the sun is most menacing is between ten in the morning and three in the afternoon. You should therefore challenge the sunny weather before ten in the morning or once it is past three in the afternoon. If your holiday vacation involves other activities but swimming, you should wear clothing that can cover almost everything, if not all parts of your body.

If you really have to be exposed to the sun, always remember these reminders. And even if you would just be loitering inside your house, use a sunscreen but with a sun protection factor of at least five to ten. So, if you are that petrified of acquiring age spots, remember and follow this article by heart!
