Sun damage, or photoaging, occurs when UV radiation alters the DNA in skin cells, leading to the premature aging and increased risk of skin cancer. This process is different from chronological aging, because it is not the natural progression of the skin’s aging. Before going out and spending time in the sun, preparing your skin can reduce the risk of sun damage significantly.  

You can safely be physically active, play with your child, and get vitamin D by protecting your skin with sunscreen, and not only in the summertime but during cloudy or cool days as well. UV rays can reflect on surfaces like water, sand, and snow. 

LEMYKA's Sun Lotion UV Shield Moisturizer (SPF 30+) is a great choice for sunscreen due to its one active ingredient - ZnO. This ingredient is gentle on sensitive skin and safe for all ages, including babies and toddlers, all while maintaining a lightweight, non-greasy feel with no white residue left over. 

Wearing protective clothing such as long-sleeve shirts, long pants, skirts, hats, or sunglasses can help to safeguard your skin from sun damage in the face and body.
