5 Tips to Help Keep Skin Safe in the Sun
Berlin, Germany, 23/8/16 - Over recent decades beauty standards have altered to place a larger importance on bronzed, sun-kissed skin. Changing leisure habits have made regular use of sunbeds acceptable, and a culturally agreed importance of boasting a year-round tan as a sign of health - and expendable wealth - mean that tanning is more pervasive than ever before.
Sporting a gorgeous glowing skin tone may make some among us feel better about our looks, but the potential health effects have been widely reported on. Specifically in Canada, a recent study from dermatological platform Derma.plus showed that the country has the 19th highest diagnoses annually of skin cancer worldwide. And at this time of year, it’s not just those who use artificial tanning methods who need to be careful to keep their skin protected.
Below are five simple ways to ensure you don’t over-expose your skin this summer, boosting your chances of keeping skin healthy.
1. Wear practical clothing...
A simple technique to avoid strong solar radiation is to wear sensible, skin-covering clothing, suitable for the environment around you. Loose fitting linens are very popular in summer, providing adequate ventilation as well as cover from the sun’s rays. Likewise, don’t underestimate the power a simple hat can have in protecting your face from the sun’s heat. At the beach or swimming pool don’t assume these garments need to come off before you get into the water; UV rays are more intense when refracted through liquid, so stay covered for as long as required.
- ...And adequate sun protection!
The most popular kind of sun protection is still the classic sunscreen. But make sure that you’re using the correct SPF for your skin type, as well as the right amount to actually protect the skin. To reach the SPF level on the bottle, adults should use at least 30-40ml sunscreen for the whole body. If you have sensitive skin, if its midsummer, of if you’re in a hotter country than your skin is ordinarily used to, be sure to raise your SPF factor accordingly, and always reapply several times throughout the day.
- Allow skin to acclimatise
If your skin is not used to hot weather or intense sunlight be careful about subjecting it to these factors too quickly. Allow it time to become accustomed to more intense solar levels to avoid any nasty sensations or shocks. Keep sunbathing to shorter periods of time in the first instances, and avoid being in the sun too long during it’s peak, between 10am-4pm in the northern hemisphere.
- Avoid sun beds
Straight-up great advice; sun beds should be avoided! It has been proven time and again that simulated solar radiation can drastically increase the risk of developing harmful diseases such as skin cancer. Such intense solar levels coupled with a lack of protection not only increase the risk of cancer, but also age the skin faster than usual. Some among us use sunbeds ahead of holidays in an attempt to acclimatise skin by creating a base layer of tan. However due to the intensity at which sunbeds work, this is not a sensible approach. A far better option is to follow the advice above and slowly acclimatise your skin whilst on location, timing exposure and ensuring skin is never exposed to levels which are too intense.
- Take special precautions with children
As far as the usage of sunscreen on children’s skin goes, debates rage on regarding the age at which they can safely start to have it applied. Some experts state that babies under 6 months of age should never have it applied, whilst others argue children should never use it under the age of two. Whichever argument you’re more inclined to believe, most experts and parents agree that sunscreen should never be the first and only line of defence for children. Opt instead for physical barriers such as clothing, hats or umbrellas.

Lole - All White Tour Toronto
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Lole all white tour. I have to say this was a very well run event. I am not a yogi but I definitely enjoyed all of the flow. The two instructors who lead it were amazing. Thank you for inviting me Lole. Not only did I get an invite but Lole dressed me for the event in their line. The event was all white and Ive never actually wore a pair of all white pants. I was a bit hesitant but the pants fit great, felt great and best of all were not see through! Lucky for the 2000 people behind me in attendance wouldn't you say?
I arrived bit early to check out the show case of Lole's new line, network and take in the entire experience. The Feel Good Guru provided healthy snacks and pressed juices. All were very yummy. Ive tried her juice cleanse before and absolutely loved it (for those of you interested in a juice cleanse).
Oikos also provided greek yogurt and were a sponsor of the event. In our gift bag full of wonderful goodies they had a knife, spoon and fork set and a picnic napkin for us. After our practice they gave us all a vegan lunch to eat on our mat while local talented musicians played for us. Fiji provided the water. It was relaxing and peaceful.
Lole not only gave us a gift bag full of amazing products, gift cards and picnic accessories but they also let us take home the mat that we used! What an awesome take home!
Thanks again for inviting me Lole. It was an experience that I won't ever forget.
Check out my photos below of the experience! Don't you wish that you were there!

We’re delighted to have her as a partner, and we’re looking forward to what’s to come.”
Adam Petrick, Global Brand & Marketing Director for PUMA said, “Rihanna brings joy to audiences around the world but also ignites and awes.

Jeremy from Carbon Energized Canada Apparel was nice enough to send me a sports bra and a pair of shorts. The products are designed and made in Italy.
The long pants and shirt are the most popular but perhaps that was because of the winter weather. They were made from Polypropylene Dry Yarn which has the best thermal capacity of ANY fiber even wool. Great abrasion resistance. They also don’t absorb water. They are antibacterial, anti mold, and are Hypoallergenic.
The apparel was tested in a hospital sports lab, and decrease lactic acid build up 12% more than Polyester. Decrease heart rate and respirations also compared to Polyester. 3X less body temp variation during your workout compared to Polyester.
I found them to be quite comfy. A lot of the other apparel that they have on their website looks great too! http://www.carbonenergized.ca
If you get a chance to purchase the shirts and tights from them let me know if you liked the apparel as much as I do.
Thanks again Jeremy and Carbon Energized Canada! Good luck with your awesome apparel line!
Nike is calling it their best fit. Ever.
I can't wait to try these out! They look so comfy!
