Sun protection and Extra Virgin Olive Oil to enjoy the summer!

Ready to make the most of summer? We want to talk to you about the importance of protecting our skin from sunburn and how Extra Virgin Olive Oil can be a great ally in this regard.

We all know how wonderful it is to sunbathe and enjoy the beach or the pool, but it is essential to take care of our skin to avoid long-term damage. Sunburns can be painful and even dangerous, which is why we need to take precautions.

  1. Always apply sunscreen: Before going out in the sun, be sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) appropriate for your skin type. Don’t forget to reapply every few hours, especially after swimming or sweating.
  2. Seek Shade: Avoid direct sun exposure during peak radiation hours, generally between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and 4 p.m. It is always a good idea to seek shade, wear wide-brimmed hats, and protective clothing.
  3. Hydrate properly: Drink enough water to keep your skin hydrated from within. Proper hydration helps protect your skin and prevents dehydration caused by sun exposure.

 

And now, what role does Extra Virgin Olive Oil play in all of this?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is not only delicious in the kitchen, but it can also help protect and soothe skin after sun exposure. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties may help reduce redness and irritation associated with sunburn.

To use it, simply apply a small amount of EVOO to the areas affected by sunburn. Gently massage to absorb and enjoy its soothing and moisturizing effect.

Remember that Extra Virgin Olive Oil does not replace sunscreen, but is a complement to skin care. So don’t forget to apply your sunscreen regularly and take all the necessary precautions!

Enjoy the sun safely and always take care of yourself!
