Today, it is standard practice to apply sunscreen before going to the pool or beach. Most people are well aware of sun exposure risks when they plan to be outdoors for extended periods of time. The problem is, most people don't realize that everyday incidental use and protection for all outdoor activities are equally as important. Whether you're going outside for a walk, biking, or playing nine holes of golf, sunscreen application is necessary.
Research suggests that everyone over the age of six months should wear sunscreen daily. Even if you spend most of the time indoors and have only brief periods of ultraviolet radiation throughout the day, you still need to protect yourself. Since UVA and UVB rays damage the skin, cause premature aging, and increase the risk of skin cancer, sunscreen is your best defense, in addition to wearing protective clothing.
To ensure you get the safest and best protection, you should opt for a natural sunscreen with mineral ingredients. Mineral powder sunscreens such as Brush on Block® SPF 30, deflect the sun's harmful rays and begin working instantly. Since it is housed in a portable applicator, Brush on Block is easy to put in your pocket or throw in your bag for activities on-the-go. Simply brush liberally over your face, neck, arms, and scalp for full coverage and reapply as needed.
Don't skip your favorite outdoor activities because you are worried about sun exposure. Just be smart and try to avoid direct exposure during peak hours and protect your skin with Brush on Block.
