5 Ways to Protect Your Skin From the Sun
It's no secret that the most effective protection against the sun is the protection that you wear. Ever heard of sunscreen? Of course you have. It's been around for nearly 90 years. It's a good form of protection from the sun, but there is one catch to its effectiveness - It must be reapplied every two hours. Sunscreen paired with other forms of protection works wonders, but alone it's just not enough. For that reason, you won't find any products with SPF in our top 5. UPF 50+ clothing and accessories, on the other hand, provide the most effective form of sun protection because there not as much of a commitment as sunscreen ends up being, won't wash off due to water or sweat, and always applies to UVB and UVA rays. Still trying to figure out the difference between UPF and SPF? Check out our blog on it. Follow these 5 tips to protect your skin from the sun’s rays. 1.
