Being outside for long periods of time can have a devastating effect on your skin if you are not careful. The suns rays can cause all kinds of skin problems like cancer, spots or even red bumps on your skin. This is why you need protection.
There are multiple types of protection. You can wear clothes that will keep your bare skin out of the sun. However, in most cases this would make you really really hot. Who would want to wear long sleeves and pants in the summer? Especially when doing sports!
What do I recommend? I personally use sunscreen. There are many different types of sunscreen you can use. There are spray on, lotion and others.
What should you look for when choosing sunscreen? Well most of it is personal preference but I personally buy the ones with the highest SPF. Like SPF 40 or so is plenty of protection for your skin. One other thing I like to look for is if it is waterproof. Waterproof sunscreen helps because when you are running or playing soccer or any other sport the sweat will not make the sunscreen come off.
So once again, if you do not want to have ugly skin problems like acne or more dangerous ones like cancer then be sure to protect yourself! Your body will thank you later! If you want more information on the types of damage the sun can cause then be sure to check out redspotsonskinhq.com
