Tips on how to protect your skin now that the heat is starting

Ultraviolet radiation can cause many health problems, including skin cancer, cataracts, suppression of the immune system, and premature aging. For example, if you are exposed to high levels of UV radiation for a long time, it can weaken your immune system and reduce the skin's ability to defend itself against pathogens.

Now that the Summer season is coming and temperatures are expected to rise skin care should be primary.

Here are some tips from American health experts to help protect your skin:

Stay in the shade when possible.

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen, which protects against UVA and UVB rays, with an SPF of 15 or higher before you go out. Apply sunscreen every two hours and be sure to check the expiration date before using.

Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants to reduce sun exposure and place a blouse or beach cover over your bathing suit.

Put on a hat to protect your face, ears and neck. Avoid straw hats because sunlight can still shine through them.

Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
