Even if you don’t plan on being outside for long periods of time, you should always wear sunscreen. The amount of sun exposure you are actually receiving may surprise you.
… Places you may not know you’re exposed:
- Walking to your car from indoors to your next indoor destination
- How many times are you in and out of your car?
- Time in your car (to and from work or errands)
- While you may have tinted windows, your face and hands are still exposed to harmful UV light.
- Does your office have a view?
- It’s probably not SPF protected.
- Do you work outside or enjoy outdoor activities?
While sunlight can help your body make Vitamin D and fight the blues, make sure you protect yourself from the harmful rays to prevent prematurely aging your skin and lower your risk for skin cancer.
