If you’re spending any amount of time outdoors, then sun protection will be very important to keep in mind. Here’s our guide on how to best protect yourself from sun overexposure.

The Basics of Sun Protection

Everyone here in the Southwest knows that you need to take care of your skin in order to put up with the harsh sun, often year round. Everyone knows that sunscreen is important when you are, say, going to the beach or even the park for a few hours. However, not as many people know that sun protection is important in your own day to day life, even if you’re not sitting under the sun for an extended period of time. A walk, for example, should be done while taking care of your skin with the help of sunscreen. Arizona skin care calls for you to use sunscreen whenever you’re going to be under the sun for more than a few minutes in order to avoid getting sunburned. That is what Arizona Sun sunscreen can help you with.

Safely Enjoy the Sun While Outdoors

If you're actually looking to spend time in the sun, you might want something more than just sunscreen. For example, you might want to get tan. Now, a lot of people make the mistake of using little to no sunscreen when they want to tan, since they feel like that’s what is necessary in order for their skin to take on the color that they’re looking for. That’s not exactly true; you want to get tan, not red! With that in mind, you can use tanning oil in order to tan better and safely. Applying our Arizona Sun tanning oil on your skin will attract more UV rays coming from the sun and focus them on your skin. This exposure will allow the melanin in your skin to be produced faster, therefore accelerating the process of ideal tanning.

Dealing with the Effects of Sun Overexposure

Of course, it goes without saying that, regardless of your levels of sun protection, you might still end up with a bit of a sunburn. Maybe you forgot to apply it on a specific area or you might have not been prepared to spend a long time under the sun when you left home. It could happen to anyone, but what should you do about that? Well, it’s important to take care of burns, not just because of the pain they might cause, but also the potential health hazards. You will want to avoid infected sunburns or dehydration because of them, so you need to take care of them. Our Arizona Sun Sunburn Relief gel can provide you the sunburn relief you need with the help of natural ingredients such as aloe vera, rose hips, sunflower seed extract, and plenty of others.
