(StatePoint) Do you spend summer days outdoors mowing the lawn, tending to the garden and working on the house? Here are a few steps you can take to help you care for and protect your skin as you complete your seasonal chores:
• Dress right: A few wardrobe considerations go a long way. Opt for long, lightweight clothing in light colors, which can protect your skin from sun exposure while keeping you cool. Sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat can provide further coverage. If possible, arrange to spend the bulk of your time outdoors either before 10 in the morning or after 4 in the afternoon to avoid exposure while the sun’s rays are at their strongest.
