With the lazy summer breeze drift us closer and closer to the sandy shores of the ocean side, a surge of excitement for cold cocktails, feather-light dresses and golden tans spirals through the air. But after bathing under fluorescent lights all winter, rushing into a bronze goddess state may not be the move for your skin.

 

A sun-kissed appearance looks amazing in the moment, so it’s easy to forget about the long-term risk. Aside from walking a dangerous line with melanoma and other forms of skin cancer, it also can lead to premature aging...even if you are blessed with great genetics!

 

Slipping a high quality, broad spectrum sunscreen like the Silk Emollient Protect, SPF 30 into your daily skincare routine is a beautiful way to keep your skin youthful and fresh looking all year long. Plus, even with sunscreen on you’ll still be gradually tanning! It may take a little longer than you’re used to, but your skin with thank you for it in the long run.

 

Incorporating hats for a bold fashion statement is another sneaky way to save your skin from the harsh rays of the summer skin. Plus, what makes a beach outfit cuter than a chic floppy straw hat?

 

Slide on a pair of oversized shades, and you’re ready to bask in the warm glow of the sun!
