hile our love affair with the sun is short and sweet in Canada, it is nonetheless irresistible. Make love for your skin #1 and don’t get burned: sun damage leads to wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin and cancer.
Take cover under a shady tree or umbrella between 10am-3pm when sun rays are most intense. Wear stylish,
light-weight palazzo pants, a cotton tunic and fashionable wide-brimmed hat for added coverage. Wear sunglasses that offer both UVA and UVB eye protection. Sunlight is not only a factor in cataract formation, but squinting also leads to wrinkles!
Because UV rays reflect off water and other surfaces, you’re not completely safe even in the shade. Likewise, up to 80% of UV rays penetrate clouds. And while dark skin may not appear to burn, it is still susceptible to sun damage. Save your skin with proper use of sunscreen that offers protection against UVA + UVB rays.
Sip on antioxidant-rich, iced green tea, proven to protect cells from sunlight. Talk to your pharmacist to determine if your prescription medications make you more sensitive to rays. H&L
