We are in the middle of the summer. At the time when most of the people have taken days off their jobs and enjoyed their summer vacation. A period characterized by relaxation.

Relaxation, however, must not exist in terms of the sun and the way we deal with it, since in recent years its radiation has caused many problems in our skin.

That’s why we give you some tips on how to protect yourself effectively from the sun.

Use sunscreen properly

Most of us are aware of the great importance of using sunscreen, but there are many who do not use it properly. Especially for the summer months you have to use sunscreen with a protection index of 50. Since we all put less amount than the proposed one and thus we get much less protection than the product could offer us.

Put on the sunscreen at the right time

Unfortunately there are many people who put on the sunscreen long enough before they leave their home and feel they are protected. However, you should know that the maximum protection period is 2 hours, so you need to renew it frequently.

Change your sunglasses

Sunglasses are a must-buy in a country as sunny as Greece. And because we use them very often, they get scratches and wear out. Therefore, it would be prudent to change your glasses every two years in order to get better protection and you should also keep them in a special case.

Do not use sunscreen only when you go to the beach

Many people use sunscreen products only when they go to swim at the beach. However, the sun is dangerous in every place and therefore should never leave your skin without protection from the harmful rays of the sun.

An umbrella does not bring the spring

Finding a shadow under an umbrella at a beach, does not mean that you are not automatically at risk. It is certainly preferable than being direct exposed to the sun but still requires regular use of sunscreen for ultimate protection.

Search for the proper sunscreen

The purchase of a sunscreen product is really important and should not be done in a hurry. You need to buy a product based on your phototype as well as on the needs of your skin.

Sunscreen all the seasons

We have combined the use of sunscreen products with summer and sea, but we need to use sunscreen creams throughout the year.
