How to Avoid Some Extra Sun Spots This Spring Break
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
With spring break just around the corner, it’s time to gear up for some much-needed rest and relaxation, head out of the city, and go somewhere warm. Before you grab a cocktail and lay on the beach, however, Dr. Barry Goldman has got some tips to keep you and your skin covered. Rather than coming back from spring break vacation with more sunspots and sun damage, why not take some preventative measures to avoid new sun spots altogether? Let’s take a closer look at a few ways that you can come back with healthier, damage-free skin.
It’s no secret that one of the best things that you can do for your skin is to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen (especially when you’re going to the beach), but you may not know how often you should reapply it. On average, Dr. Goldman encourages patients to reapply their sunscreen every two to three hours if they are laying out; that way you can ensure that your skin is really staying protected for the whole time you’re at the beach.
Wear a Large Brimmed Hat
If you feel like every time you leave the beach or the pool that you end up with some sun spots just under your eyes or around your nose, then it may be because you need a little bit more protection. In addition to reapplying your sunscreen every couple of hours, make sure that you invest in a wide, large brimmed hat. The great thing about large brimmed hats is that if they are wide enough, they will cover your entire face, your shoulders, your neck, and your décolleté; leaving you with way more protection in the process.
For an additional layer of protection for that sensitive skin around your eyes and on top of your cheekbones, consider investing in a pair of sunglasses that are large enough to cover not just your eyes but the skin around your eyes as well. The great thing about sunglasses too is that they conceal dark circles and mascara-free lashes while you’re on vacation so that you don’t have to wear a stitch of makeup.
