How Does Sun Exposure Impact Your Skin? 

Skin cancer remains one of the most prevalent types of cancer worldwide, but it’s also one of the most preventable. The main culprit is the sun’s UV rays, which not only elevate the risk of cancer but can also lead to sun damage and premature aging. Whether it’s a day at the beach or an outdoor stroll, unprotected exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can lead to significant skin damage. 

Avoiding the Sun’s Harmful Rays

Sun avoidance is one of the most effective strategies for protecting your skin, especially during peak UV radiation hours, from around 10 am to 4 pm. Planning your outdoor activities around these hours can significantly reduce exposure to harmful UV rays. If you must be outdoors, we recommend wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses for protection.

Sunscreen – Your Skin’s Protective Armor

No skincare regimen is complete without a quality sunscreen, which acts as a protective barrier between your skin and the sun’s damaging rays. For maximum protection, we recommend broad-spectrum sunscreens that shield against both UVA and UVB rays. At Desert Eyesthetics, we offer quality skincare products from ZO Skin Health , Alastin Skincare , and Jan Marini to not only protect but also nourish your skin, leaving it looking and feeling healthier than ever.
