While I normally write about healthy eating, Summer is around the corner (who am I kidding--in Las Vegas it's officially here as the mercury topped 107 degrees today). If you've been pretty good about maintaining healthy eating habits and working out the rest of the year, you'll be looking to show off your buff body for Summer and looking to get tan.
Here's a great post to remind us that while we work to be healthy overall, you've got to consider sun exposure too:
Here are two additional points on healthier sun exposure I wantd to add:
1. Wear a hat or baseball cap to keep sun off your face and scalp--many skin cancers can develop in the hairline, and you can keep away a few more wrinkles and sun spots. Don't want to wear a hat? Use a spray sun screen in your hairline or any thinning hair spots.
2. Don't forget incidental sun exposure when you are driving or running around doing errands and not specifically spending a lot of time in the sun. Use a moisturizer for your face and neck that has at least 15 SPF and try one of the new lotions for hands, arms and legs that also has SPF of 15 or more.
I absolutely love Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 UVA/UVB sunscreen , and its new product Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion With Sunscreen SPF 15 UVA/UVB protection for that incidental sun exposure that I haven't always been so good about protecting myself from.
