Today, you can have the confidence to look good at any time you want without having to spend most of your paycheck. On a healthy note, when planning time outdoors take the time to know what your skin type is and how it should be cared for. There are four different skin types, and each has its own level of tolerance to sun exposure. If you’re pale skinned and boast a mane of glossy blonde or reddish hair, you are a Type I. Those with Type I skin should use caution in exposing themselves to the sun’s harmful fashion designer rays, as their natural protection time in the sun is a mere five to ten minutes. Skin Type II’s have a somewhat darker complexion but are still light skinned; their bodies naturally fight the sun’s rays for up to twenty minutes. People with much darker skin tones fall into skin Types III and IV and can stay in the sun for about thirty to forty minutes unprotected before experiencing a burn. Regardless, all skin types should use extra protection to keep themselves safe from the sun’s damaging rays.
