Reports on the dangers of sun tanning can be scary.
FORT LEE, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
The newest blog from EatingRightToday.com addresses the benefits people receive from summer sunshine, and the dangers of over-indulging without taking precautions before heading outdoors. Titled "The Benefits of Sunshine and Sunscreen," the blog offers some healthy advice on making the most of summer’s abundant sunshine while keeping the skin protected.
According to guest blogger Liz Ernst, there is no denying that people's moods improve noticeably each year when the weather warms up and the sun reappears. From the first clear day of spring through the summer days spent at the beach or by the pool, people tend to feel better and smile more; the benefits of sunshine seem obvious.
The consequences of sun exposure are pretty well known to most people too, and reports on the dangers of sun tanning can be scary.
The truth is, both the sun and protection from the sun are important to health. To remain healthy, people need to find a perfect balance between receiving the health benefits of the sun and protecting their skin from its dangers. The sun is one of the best natural sources of Vitamin D, which is crucial for cell reproduction and optimal kidney and liver function. Vitamin D also helps blood maintain normal calcium and phosphorus levels.
However, too much sun can damage the skin and even lead to skin cancer.
“Never spend time in the sun without applying sunscreen before you head out, and keep reapplying it throughout the day,” Ernst says. “In summer months, most experts recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.”
Sun protection is not a summer-only rule, especially for people active in outdoor winter sports. Any exposure to sun requires sunscreen, no matter what time of year, Ernst says.
