5. Sunscreen is a Must
If you have ever seen a worn-out shoe, then you have witnessed what the sun’s rays can do to unprotected skin. If you have fair skin that burns and never tans, wear sunscreen whenever you are exposed to the sun’s rays. If you love the look of tanned skin, fake a sun-kissed glow with bronzing makeup or a spray-on tan at a salon.
Do not subject your skin to the concentrated ultraviolet rays of a tanning bed – which may accelerate the development of skin cancer. Even if you have dark skin, you must wear sunscreen. While larger levels of melanin provide some protection against the damage the sun’s rays can do, even very dark skin can develop skin cancer.
