If you're a midday runner, it means you face an increased risk for sun damage. Consider this: if you spent six hours on the beach, you probably wear sunscreen. However, if you run for one hour, you may not wear any. But, if you run one hour per day for six days, it means you’ve been exposed to six hours of sun damage … just like if you went to the beach all day sans sunscreen. Now, multiply that times every day that you run throughout the year. Scary, right?
Before you lace up and head out, apply sweat-proof sunscreen that won’t come off as your run heats up. Want to elevate your sun protection? Wear UV-protective clothing. Not all clothing blocks out harmful rays, though, so be sure to check the tags and talk to a store associate to find what you need.SHOP SUN PROTECTION NOW
