The Importance Of Protecting Your Face When Playing Golf

golf - CopyIf you enjoy playing golf several times a month and spend hours at a time at your favourite courses, the importance of protecting your face from the harsh rays of the sun can not be overstated. After all, prolonged sun exposure can cause premature skin aging and in some instances skin cancer.

So, how do you protect your skin from the sun? (aside from lifecell anti aging cream) Well, one of the most effective ways to reduce sun damage to your skin is to apply a high quality SPF50 sunscreen to your face before you go outside. When it comes to choosing a sunscreen you need to ensure that you select a high quality brand and you also need to ensure that you purchase your sunscreen from a reputable supplier. This is because some of the cheaper sunscreens in the marketplace only contain limited quantities of the active ingredients that protect your skin. In addition, well-known brands are unfortunately often targeted by counterfeit operations, so purchasing your sunscreen from a reputable supplier is very important.

Another way to protect your face when playing golf is to wear a large cap and sunglasses, and to carry around a portable sun umbrella. However, you need to remember that different golf courses have different strict dress codes and on some courses you may not be allowed to wear large sun hats or sunglasses, or to carry any type of umbrella around.

Golf is an excellent recreational activity that challenges a person mentally and physically, whilst also providing the prefect opportunity for social interaction. Worrying about your face when you are playing golf is probably one of the last things on your mind, but hopefully after reading this article you will take better steps to protect your face in the future, so that you avoid premature skin aging.
