Many of our favorite recreational activities take place outdoors, particularly during the summer. Whether you’re splashing around in the surf on a sunny summer beach, running the bases at a company softball game, or just enjoying a nice afternoon on the porch, protecting yourself from the harmful rays of the sun is vital in maintaining good skin health—including preventing premature aging and lowering of the risk of developing skin cancer.
