Today, May 27, is Sunscreen Day! or for those of you with a more satirical nature, Happy Don't Fry Day!

Summer will be here soon (June 20, 2016) and Suncreen is on my of Summer Fashion & Beauty Essentials Guide.

Remember, Sunscreen protects your skin from the Suns Ultraviolet Rays. Excessive Exposure to these Ultraviolet Rays can cause Skin Cancer and Premature Aging.

Sunscreen is an absolute necessity - so, Let's protect ourselves, shall we? Here are some tips for your fabulous day out in the sun!

Sunblock Tip #1. You Should Use Sunscreen anytime you're outdoors (not just in the summer) and EVEN when it's cloudy.

Sunblock Tip #2. Wear Protective Clothes:
                     Long Sleeve Shirt (or Stylish Kimonos like these)
                     Hat with a Wide Brim

Sunblock Tip #3. Protect Your Lips! with a SPF 30 or higher lip balm/lipstick

Sunblock Tip #4.  Apply Sunscreen 30 minutes before you go outdoors so your skin can absorb it. Reapply every 80 Minutes - 2 hours OR after you sweat or get wet (even if the sunscreen is water resistant)

Sunblock Tip #5. Seek Shade! If your Shadow is Shorter than you, look for a nice cool shady place to hang out in. Remember, You still have to apply sunscreen even in the shade!

Sunblock Tip #6. Don't forget covering your toes and feet with sunscreen!

Sunblock Tip #7. Use a Face Sunscreen for your face and a Body Sunscreen for your Body! They're each made for different purposes. You might break out if you use the Body formula on your face.

Sunblock Tip #8. Windows don't protect you, so use Sunscreen even when driving or when you're hanging out in a nice window filled room!

Sunblock Tip #9. Look for Broad Spectrum on the Sunscreen Bottle Label when purchasing! This means the sunscreen protects from both UVA AND UVB Rays.

* UVA rays cause wrinkles, premature aging and sunspots
* UVB rays can cause skin cancer

Sunblock Tip #10. Sunblock loses it's effectiveness over time. So remember to check the expiration date or use a new bottle every year to be on the safe side!
