Vacation time and that means … Sun!. Like it or not exposing skin to sun rays always come to you. Even if you stay in the city, you run the risk. I give you a guide of what to do for the sun to your skin rough treatment.
So it’s important to know some facts about sun exposure:
1. UV rays also reflect off of surfaces like water, cement, sand, and snow.
2. Most sun protection products work by absorbing, reflecting, or scattering sunlight.
They contain chemicals that interact with the skin to protect it from UV rays. All products do not have the same ingredients; if your skin reacts badly to one product, try another one or call a doctor.
3. Sun exposure damages the eyes as well as the skin.
4. Some medications increase the skin’s sensitivity to UV rays. As a result, even kids with skin that tends not to burn easily can develop a severe sunburn in just minutes when taking certain medications. Fair-skinned kids, of course, are even more vulnerable.
5. Clothing provides very little protection from extended stays in the sun.

FIVE WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF:
a) If you go to the mountain:
This is the destiny that has more risk of burns, especially if you’re going to snow. According to the World Health Organization, the snow reflects 80% of ultraviolet rays, a figure much higher than other surfaces such as grass, asphalt, sand or water, where ultraviolet rays are reflected only 25%.
b) If you go to any city:
Walking through the streets or have a snack on the terrace without sunscreen carries the same risks of scalding that if we did at the beach. You must use a sunscreen at least on the face, the most exposed and most accused photoaging. Should be monitoredespecially areas with the most commonly attacks the skin cancer: the nose, lips, eyes,hair line and the edge of the ears and do not forget to also protect the back of his hand
c) If you go to the beach:
Keep in mind the type of beach that you are going to go, since it is not the same to take the sun in the Mediterranean than in the Caribbean. Doctor Ordás explains that there are many people who come to see him with burns caused in exotic places and say they’ve used sunscreen. The problem is that the sun does not fall in the same way in all corners of the earth, and solar radiation, dependent on the sun’s elevation varies with latitude, season and time, being higher in the tropics, in summer and at noon.
