Before going out in the sun make sure you prepare your skin well to stay protected by observing some ways to protect your skin from sun exposure. Below are some of the best ways to protect your skin from the sun and tips to prevent your skin from sun exposure naturally:
CTM for skin preparation
Cleansing, toning, and moisturising the skin is a must for skin preparation. CTM helps prepare your skin well for sunscreen application and sun exposure.

It also helps to fulfill your skin's moisture and nourishment needs and delays visible signs of aging on the skin.
Sunscreens & Sunblock Application
SPF - Sun Protection Factor is a must in every season. The number of SPF describes how strongly the sunscreen or sunblock will protect your skin by forming a protective shield onto the skin. While wearing sunscreen or sunblock, it's best to choose a sunscreen with broad-spectrum UV protection. Apply 15 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply after every 2 hours if you are constantly in sun exposure.
