7 Easy Ways to Protect Your Skin Without Sunblock

Summer is a wonderful season filled with lots of fun in the sun - weekend parties, barbecues and gatherings of all kinds. But what if your job requires you to spend several hours outside each and every day?

Our ranch is located in the heat and humidity of Northeast Texas, and our days are filled with outside chores such as working cattle or repairing fences, gardening or mowing pastures. Sun protection is important, but I shy away from using sunblock whenever possible. Why?

Although sunblock is marketed as safe and effective, I just don't know how I feel about slathering chemicals on my skin several times each and every day. Sunblock has its place in my skin-protection arsenal, but today I'm sharing seven easy ways I'm able to protect my skin from the sun's harmful rays without resorting to sunblock.

Time of Day is Important

The sun is at its most intense level and UV is at its strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If I have a choice, I plan my outside activities around those times. Our workload doesn't always allow us to pick and choose when we start and stop our tasks but we always keep this in mind if we have any flexibility at all.



Because we're not held to a rigid 9-5 workday, we typically try to complete the bulk of our outside chores before 10 a.m. When the sun starts getting high in the sky we come inside during the heat of the day to perform our inside chores such as house cleaning, financial planning, cattle record maintenance, etc.
