Sun Protection for Skin and Hair

How To Protect Your Skin And Hair From Sun Damage

The sun is one of the most significant factors that contribute to skin and hair damage. Exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can cause numerous skin and hair problems, including premature aging, sunburn, skin cancer, and hair loss.  Being lovers of all things outdoors, it is imperative that we take sun protection seriously. 

Speaking of taking sun protection seriously, Kim has been diagnosed with skin cancer a couple of times.   She has had to have MOHS surgery to remove these  spots, one of which was on her right temple of her face.  As you can imagine, having to have your face cut on is quite a wake up call. After having this happen, Kim takes every precaution to ensure she is keeping sun damage and skin cancer at bay.   

Protect Your Face from Sun Damage


There are three main strategies that we adhere to in order to ensure we are protecting ourselves.  First, we always wear a wide brimmed hat or a ball cap when we are going to be outside for an extended period to ensure we are protecting our face and hair.  Second, we get an annual check-up with a dermatologist to ensure any suspicious spots are caught early.  Third, we use quality products developed by dermatologists and specifically formulated to protect our hair and skin from the harmful effects of the sun.  

In this article, we'll discuss why it's important to use the best skincare and hair care products to protect against sun damage, with a focus on Rodan and Fields products.
