Your Skin's Way of Saying "Ouch!"

Sunburn risk is highest in the middle of the day

Anytime your skin makes a tan, its your skin's way of saying "Ouch!" Its your skin's way of complaining. You don't have to have a sun burn or have your skin peel to do damage to your skin.

What can you do to avoid a sunburn? Dr. Michael Borenstein at Gardens Dermatology explains that you should take steps to protect yourself from the South Florida sun.

  1. Wear a wide brimmed hat
  2. Avoid the peak hours of the sun
  3. Use SPF 30 or higher
  4. Wear clothing with SPF protection
  5. Consider polarized sunglasses

Its also important to remember that you don't have to be tanning, or laying out in the sun to get burned, you can simply be outdoors and still be exposed to damaging UV rays.
