The Florida sun can give you a terrific tan or a serious burn. That’s why we’re sharing these skin protection tips for our Promenade Crossing community members in Orlando, Florida.
1: Block Out Harmful UV Rays
It’s important to consider that the risk of excessive and harmful UV rays impacts everyone. Some people may believe sunscreen is only for fair-skinned people. Not true. Skin damage and melanoma can impact anyone, regardless of pigmentation or experience with the sun’s exposure. Put sunscreen on every morning if you plan to go out in the sun. Longer exposures call for a greater SPF rating. If you are going to the beach, multiple applications may be in order.
2: Moist Skin is Healthy Skin
In some male circles, the idea of moisturizing skin suffers a stigma of being feminine. Goodness gracious guys, we’re talking about the most important organ of your body. Let’s take care of it!
The human skin requires key vitamins and oils that keep it healthy and elastic. Vitamin E is a huge help in maintaining skin health. But the hot Florida sun can play havoc with the skin’s natural oils. Just as moist skin is healthy skin, dry skin is a problem.
Moisturize your skin every morning and twice per day when the weather is particularly warm or when you are exposed to the sun for lengthy periods of time. There’s no reason to get unnecessarily wrinkled skin.
3: Practice Exfoliation
When people exfoliate dead skins cells on a regular basis they are also cleansing away embedded dirt and particles. By practicing exfoliation daily, or at least twice weekly, you are accentuating skin health and protecting it from unwelcome elements.
4: Youthful-Looking Skin Matters
Healthy, young-looking skin makes you appear like the picture of health. Youthful skin can also make you look more attractive. That being said, a healthy and well-rounded diet are keys to youthful skin. Also, many all-natural skin products are enhanced with essential oils and Vitamin E. Take positive measures to keep your skin looking at least as young as you feel.
5: Cleanliness Matters
When it comes to cleanliness, all products are not created equal. Some brands can inflame the skin, cause rashes or even make you feel uncomfortable. Find a soap or skin cleaning product that suits your unique skin and stick with it. Also, avoid touching your face throughout the day. That can transfer bacteria and oil, which can lead to blemishes or acne.
