If you’ve been to the Jersey Shore, you probably know that sun isn’t hard to come by! Even if you’re not trying to get a tan, you’ll most likely end up with a freckled nose by the time you leave. The reason for this is be- cause water, and especially salt water, attracts the sun. Also depending on where you’re beaching, the sand might attract rays as well.
It’s important to protect your skin from unhealthy UV radiation at all times, but especially when you’re on the sand. It is always important to keep your skin covered. Sunscreen is the most important thing you can use on your skin daily. Not only is sun damage extremely bad for your skin’s overall health, but it also increases the chances of fine lines and wrinkles.
Sunscreen also has the benefit of protecting your skin from other envi- ronmental stressors such as pollution and free radicals that we are all ex- posed to everyday. This is because sunscreen is packed with antioxidants, and in result protect from more than just sun.
Look for sunscreen that has an easy application, sheer visibility and lightweight and aim for 50+. 50+ may seem pretty high, but the more the better to protect your beautiful skin! You can also try a tinted sun protec- tion. Not only is it the perfect primer or base, it also evens out your skin tone creating a flawless look.
Don’t forget your lips! If you’ve ever had sunburnt lips you know that it is nothing short of a nightmare. Look for a lip sunscreen that doesn’t get sticky and conditions your lips as well while it protects the sun. Lip pro- tector is also great to have with you at all times, not just not on the beach.
