How To Weather the Florida Sun

Florida's Sun Can Ruin Your Skin. Care for It by Following this Advice.

  1. Wear sun block whenever possible. Sun block is of utmost importance no matter how old you are. The sun can have several damaging effects on your skin starting as simple as a quick sunburn and increasing to harmful effects that can go as far as skin cancer. By protecting the skin with sun block, (I recommend SPF 25) you can sleep well knowing you did attempt to block the harmful UV rays and procure your skin. Always use sun block, whether you are spending a day at the beach, or just casually walking down Ocean Drive for a quick people-watching visit.
  2. Wear eye protection. The sun can damage all parts of the body that are exposed, but what is more important than your vision? I would argue nothing is more important than one's vision. Wearing proper eye protection can help keep the sun out of the delicate skin areas around the capillaries and help your eyes stay healthy and youthful.
  3. If you are over age 30, think of adding an anti-aging regimen during your stay in Florida. Eye creams and eye serums are powerful topical applications that can help avoid sun spots, dark circles under the eyes, puffy eyes and even deep lines that form from the corners of the eyes. If you haven't heard of eye serums, do a Google search for "eye serums" and there are plenty of helpful product review sites that can help you decide what eye serum is right for you. Most websites offer several consumer-submitted opinions about various eye serums, and often times make recommendations. Most eye serums are simple to apply. Casually add a fingertip under each eye twice daily, and rest assured knowing you are properly medicating your eyes and treating them for the potentially dangerous Florida sun. This is a key component to an anti-aging cosmetic plan. 
  4. Drink plenty of water and other non-alcoholic liquids. Yes, I understand most people in Florida are vacationing. It's logical that they will probably consume a few alcoholic beverages. However, it's important to stay properly hydrated in any situation in life, but none more so than when you are exposed to the hot Florida sun. Staying hydrated helps your skin keep moisture, and also protects you from dehydration. The sun is the worst element in life that can cause dehydration, and is not something to be taken lightly. Try to consumer 80 oz. of water on a daily basis to ensure your body is always hydrated.
