Sun exposure is something you want to limit because too much increases your risk of age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and skin cancer.

Thatโ€™s easier said than done, however, since you must leave your house during the day.

Even if youโ€™re going to be outside, you can keep your sun exposure under control, though youโ€™ll probably need to do a bit of planning.

Check out these easy ways to minimize your sun exposure and youโ€™ll be well on your way to skin health.

1. Stay inside

Iโ€™m not suggesting that you hide out inside the house until the sun goes down, but it is a good idea to limit the amount of sun exposure you get between 10 a.m.

and 2 p.m.

Thatโ€™s because those are the hours when the sun shines the harshest, meaning you get a lot of UVA and UVB ray exposure during that time frame.

If possible, take a respite inside during that time and save your outdoor activities for early in the morning or later in the afternoon.

2. Wear a Hat

Skin cancer can grow on the tips of your ears and your neck, both of which are body parts often neglected when applying sunscreen.

A hat can help shade both areas and is a must anytime you spend time outside.

There are loads of fashionable hats out there so you can look cute and trendy while also decreasing your risk of premature aging and skin cancer.

3. Hang out in the Shade

When you do decide to spend the day outdoors, try to seek some shade whenever possible.

Taking a break from the sunโ€™s rays offers protection and gives you a chance to reapply your sunscreen.2

Go ahead and enjoy your time in the sun, but head into the shade now and then to keep your exposure limited.
