No matter what it is -sport, cosmetic treatments, food, clothes, whatever- when we like something, many of us find it hard to keep it in check. And when that happens, the results are never good: injuries, unnatural expressions, too much or too little weight, clothes we don't even remember we have... The same thing happens when we go overboard with the sun: dark spots, red blotches, sunburn, wrinkles, saggy skin, headache and cancer, among others.
We don’t mean to alarm you. But we don't want to be glib, either. The sun is necessary and good for our body; UV rays help us produce vitamin D, fundamental for strengthening our bones. And it can have a positive impact if you're stressed or depressed.

- Use a good sunscreen.
- Stay out of it during the hottest parts of the day.
- Wear light, cool clothing.
- Keep your skin constantly hydrated.
