Spending time outside has more benefits than we can count and our team at Integrity loves to explore and relax in a variety of ways in the great outdoors. However, the sun can put a damper on that time and we don’t just mean the oppressive heat. We have all cringed, at a movie character or a person in real life, as we see them approach with a bright red line across their cheeks, over their shoulders, or at the shorts hemline near their knees. Is the outside good for you or only filled with pain? Integrity would argue it’s a little of both.
Our last blog focused on the importance of staying safe during these summer days – or any days – when you’re out in the sun. Using sunscreen anytime you’re outside probably doesn’t even require a second thought, but this blog will discuss a few of the finer points of sunscreen use to help you choose the one(s) that’s right for you. Protection from the sun is important; skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US, with more than one million new cases reported each year.
