It's official! Summer is here!
Summer is my favorite season. I love the cool mornings and warm evenings, long days, bbq'ing, beach and pool time, seasonal fruit, vacations and stay-cations, and the sun.
Ah the sun. I feel like "my battery" recharges when I spend time in the sun. My mood lifts. I smile more. I just plain feel good. However, I recognize that too much sun is not a good thing. As someone who has had several brushes with skin cancer, I know how important it is to play it safe.
Hydrating, lounging in the shade, avoiding sun's peak rays (10am-2pm), plus wearing hats and sunscreen are good ways to avoid the effects of too much sun. When it comes to sunscreens, you've got to do your homework.
