There’s a strong correlation between sun and flu prevention. Make sure you’re getting enough intentional and mindful time in the sun in the summer so that you can go into flu season healthy and strong. Although extensiveexposure to harmful UV rayscan damage your skin and potentially cause skin cancer, it’s important that we get adequate amounts of vitamin D in the summer to remain healthy. . . especially during flu season.
Photoaging happens when our skin is repeatedly exposed to harmful UV rays. Common symptoms are wrinkled and sagging skin, pigmented spots and loss of skin tone, among others. You’ll likely see the skin damage in the areas most often exposed to the sun; ie. face, neck, hands, and legs. Always be mindful of the sun and protect yourself against dangerous, cancer-causing ultraviolet radiation.
Many people rely on the sun for making enough vitamin D. At the same time, many American adults spend very little time outdoors. People with darker skin, older people and those living farther from the equator produce less vitamin D from sunlight.
