Sun Protection, The Best Anti-Aging Tip

The best anti-aging tip I know is to protect your skin from the sun. It is not an exaggeration to say that I am horrified when I occasionally see a person who has obviously been outdoors for long periods of time with no sun protection. Their skin looks like leather. And, of course, this dramatically increases the risk of skin cancer. It doesn't look like it can be comfortable, either.

Even with less exposure, too much sun increases the number of age spots and wrinkles as we get older.

Just wearing a hat with a wide brim and long sleeved tops makes a big difference. Also, choosing the time of day to work in the yard or garden helps; I work outdoors in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun is lower in the sky.

I literally never go without a mild sun block, because it is in my daily moisturizer. I use it not only on my face and neck, but on my arms and hands. I realize that many people do not want to use a commercial product. I am comfortable with mine because I have used it for decades. But there are various recipes on the web for homemade sunblocks with natural ingredients.
