6 Moments that your skin would like you to be more careful
When the sun shines bright in the sky and it is possible to feel it, it burns the skin, you must already imagine what can not be missing at all: the sunscreen. The problem is that the sun's rays can be harmful even on those days when the sun is more timid or even if you are protected from daylight, which leaves your skin vulnerable in the most diverse situations. Here are some of the times your skin would like to be protected:
1. On cloudy and rainy days
Even with the apparent protection of the clouds, the sun's rays continue to threaten our skin. "Clouds can block light, but they can pass up about 80% of ultraviolet A and B rays, which can cause burns, premature aging of the skin, and increase the risk of skin cancer," said dermatologist Carla Albuquerque, effective from the Brazilian Society of Dermatology (SBD).
2. Under the umbrella or protected in the shade

"It is not possible to dispense with the sunscreen, even under the umbrella, because it is worth remembering that most of the fabrics let out part of the solar radiation, and the sand also reflects the UV rays." 3. Using Your Cell Phone / Computer / Watching TV

It is worth mentioning that it is a region very exposed to the incidence of ultraviolet radiation and that pre-malignant lesions such as keratosis and skin cancer are often diagnosed
5. Using necklines
Care to apply sunscreen properly is not usually taken so seriously when it is necessary to apply the product to the neckline.In fact, on a day-to-day basis, The lack of daily protection in an exposed area such as this can result in blemishes, wrinkles ('neckline wrinkles'), and even the skin cancer.

Hair is an important protection for our head. By losing the hair, it becomes another area that deserves attention for the pro sunscreen. "People who are running out of hair or thinning hair often forget to properly protect this area, whether with sunscreen or with a hat. It is often the appearance of spots, pre-malignant lesions and skin cancer in this region that is routinely not adequately protected. "
Pay attention to the parts of the body that are discovered and protect them, whether with sunscreen or physical protection is an assertive way to prevent skin cancer, the one with the highest incidence in Brazil.
