Prevent Sunburn with the Safest Sunscreens for Your Summer Fun in the Sun

The sun is shining and so is your skin – a bright red. Sunburns can add up to be pretty harmful for your skin. We know it’s easy to become caught up in the moment and forget the sun protection at home, but it’s important for your future health to remember that sun block. Since the chemicals in some sunscreens seem as bad as a sunburn, we’ve compiled a list of our top nine safest sunscreens for your summer fun in the sun. Be sure to use a sun product that has Broadspectrum and UVA and UVB protection when available. If you’re not embarrassed, kid or baby sunscreens are often the safest and provide the most protection. However, if you’re not into slapping on something for little tykes, then try one of the following nine protective products:

Apply sunscreen when you’re having fun in the sun for longer than 15 minutes, especially when you’re outside during peak hours (10:30 AM – 3:30 PM). You can still get sunburned if it’s cloudy, so slap on that SPF. You skin is susceptible to sun damage all year, so double check your makeup and moisturizer to see if they have SPF for year-round protection.

Consider wearing a hat, sunglasses and clothing that protects against UV rays when you’re outside for long periods of time enjoying some fun in the sun. Being fashionably pale is a lot more beautiful than striving for an unnatural tan, so let your personality and character radiate rather than your sun-exhausted skin.

Here’s also some tips on how to have beautiful sun-kissed hair while still protecting yourself from harmful UV rays. Beauty shouldn’t hurt your body. Instead isn’t an incredible opportunity to express your identity in Christ.
