Summer Skin Safety

  • Summer Skin Safety

While it’s always sunny in San Diego, it’s important to be mindful of skin safety this Summer. Check out these tips for protecting your skin all year-round:

  • Most sunscreen SPF ratings are done with application of the cream twice as thick as most people put it on.  Go for at least SPF 30 to 50 to be on the safe side. By the time you rub it all the way in, the SPF will be half as much as the bottle says.
  • For the amount of sunscreen to use, think as much as a shot glass to cover the body.  And don’t forget sunscreen ratings assume you will re-apply every two hours and every hour if in the water or sweating.
  • The broadest UVA protection is offered by zinc oxide.  And NO, this is NOT the zinc oxide your dad used to wear on his nose making it white when you all went to the beach as kids.  Today’s zinc oxide, in the right product, is micronized or ultra-micronized such that it rubs in and you don’t see it at all.

Keep this in mind next time you’re having fun in the sun!

Rehydration Rules

  • Rehydration Rules

Not all fluids are created equal. It’s important to think about this when workouts leave you drenched or when it’s so hot outside your clothes cling to your body. If you don’t hydrate, your body and brain can suffer. During exercise, the average person should drink about two cups of water every 30 minutes to replace the fluids you’re losing. Research shows that milk is also an ideal recovery beverage, packed with protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Drink up (if you’re not intolerant of dairy)!
