At 7:00 in the morning, apply sun screen to your skinThink about what you are going to do today, go to work or do some exercise outdoors? This is very important, because this decides which kind of sun screen you are going to use today. For people with common skin, sun screen of SPF 8 – 12 will be proper. If your skin is sensitive to light, then the SPF of your sun screen should range from 12 to 20. If you are an office worker who is exposed to direct sunlight only on the way between home and office, the SPF value of your sun screen can be below 15. If you take an excursion in an open country or swim in the ocean, then the SPF value of your sun screen should be above 30. And you’d better choose waterproof sun screen if you are going swimming. In addition, it will be preferable for fair-skinned people to choose sun screen of SPF 30 or higher to prevent spots. Remember that sun screen must be applied half an hour before you go out.At 9:00 in the morning, put on sun-protection clothesThe UVB is strongest from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in a day. If you have to walk outdoors during this period, you must put on sun-protection clothes. What are sun-protection clothes? Maybe you have not heard of that. As the name suggests, they are clothes with the function of protecting your skin from the sunlight. Then, what kind of clothes has such a function? It is suggested that you pick a dress made of pure cotton. The fabric itself has SPF, and cotton has the highest SPF, which is around 15 to 40. Secondly is light clothes made of polyester with SPF of 7 to 10. While knitted clothes only have SPF of 4 to 9.At noon, avoid photosensitive foodsPhotosensitive foods include coriander, leek, soy, turnip and so on. If you eat too much of them, spots will appear on your skin easily when you are exposed to direct sunlight. Foods such as shark fin, eel, white gourds and broccoli have sun-protection nutrients, so you’d better eat more such foods in summer. Another tip: Strawberries are rich in vitamin, calcium, phosphorus and dietary fiber which are necessary to the body. Strawberries not only help digestion but also whiten skin. What’s more, their sun-resistant and radiation-proof functions are now being gradually recognized. Therefore, you can take strawberries as your after-meal fruit.At 3:00 in the afternoon, add some new sun screenHaving worked for such a long time, your skin may have become dark due to the UVA which refracted indoors. Oily skin may even oil, which will spoil your make-up. If your skin oils too much, you can use a high quality oil-absorbing sheet to absorb the oil in the “T” area. Then, you can choose a sun screen with SPF below 15 to freshen up. If your skin is too dry, you might as well drink some water at this time.At 5:30 in the afternoon, sun-protection for your hair is also essentialAfter work, do some outdoor activities which are beneficial to your skin and body type. Meanwhile, do not forget the sun-protection for your hair. Since the temperature is high in summer, the metabolism accelerates. The sebum secretion of scalp is excessive, so the condition of the hair will change, and the quality of the hair will decline. Therefore, people should choose appropriate sun screen for the hair in the late afternoon. Firstly, you should avoid products with alcohol or formaldehyde which will make the hair more withered. Secondly, mild products without any additives are a nice choice.At 9:40 in the evening, repair the skin after sunburn

Although your skin has been well protected with the help of sun screen and non-photographic foods, you still have something to do. A cup of yogurt in the evening is enough to provide necessary nutrition for you and help you stay in shape. But be sure not to take it all. It is a terrific idea to apply the rest of the yogurt on face. All you have to do is to steep the cotton pad in the yogurt for a while and then take it out and attach it to your face for about 10 to 15 minutes. This can enhance the skin’s resistance against the ultraviolet rays, and it can also lighten your sunburn. Not bad, eh?
