Glowing Through the Eclipse

When the moon steps in front of the sun, it's a jaw-dropping sight. But here's the deal: even with the dimmed light, UV rays are still lurking. They can sneak through, causing trouble for your skin.

UVA rays dive deep, causing premature aging, while UVB rays hang out on the surface, leading to sunburns. And during an eclipse, it's easy to underestimate the sun's power. The reduced light might make you think it's all cool, but UV rays are still playing their game.

To keep your skin happy during the eclipse, remember these tips:

  • Sunscreen is your BFF: Pick a sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection and a high SPF. Slather it on generously, especially on your face, neck, and hands. Don't forget to reapply, especially if you're spending lots of time outdoors.

  • Find shade: When the eclipse is on, seek shelter under umbrellas or trees. It's a simple way to dial down your sun exposure.

  • Dress smart: Rock those stylish long sleeves, wide-brimmed hats, and UV-blocking sunglasses (make sure you are wearing eclipse glasses during the big show). Not only do they look cool, but they also offer extra protection against UV rays.

  • Keep hydrated: Drink up! Staying hydrated helps your skin cope better with sun exposure. Plus, who doesn't love a refreshing drink on a sunny day?

Dr. Jodie Harper says it best: "Protecting your skin during a solar eclipse is crucial. Even though it may seem dimmer, harmful UV rays are still at play. Sunscreen and shade are your best friends!"

Remember, skincare is key, even when the cosmos put on a show. Now, go glow through the eclipse like the skincare-savvy star you are!
