6 Tips for Sun Safety

Do you love the sun as much as we do? It’s warm and bright and makes everyone oh, so happy! Plus, it offers several amazing health benefits. For one, it boosts your body’s Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is great for bone growth, illness prevention, and improved health overall. Time spent in the sun has also been proven to result in a better night’s sleep, lower blood pressure, and restored mental health.

Like most things in life, though, too much of a good thing can be bad, and when it comes to the sun, too much sun can be incredibly dangerous. Too much sun, for instance, can lead immediately to sunburn, and repeated damage from the sun can cause the skin to dry, wrinkle, discolor, and weaken. In severe cases, sun can lead to skin cancer, the most common of all of the cancers.
