Get that daily dose of sun to enhance your mood and soak up some Vitamin D
Sun, the ultimate and sustainable source of energy is a vital part of your daily life. There are good reasons as to why spending some time in the sun for a moderate amount of time is often suggested. Getting a little sunshine every day can do wonders for your body and health. As the rays of sun hit your body, the production of Vitamin D naturally begins. In addition to this, sunlight relieves stress, improves sleep cycle and also helps in treating depression.

Potential Harm from Sun Rays and how you can protect yourself from it
Although there are numerous benefits of getting in the sun, being under the hot rays for a long time can expose you to harmful UVA and UVB rays which may result in sunburn, wrinkles and spots. To keep yourself safe from these harmful rays, using a sunscreen before exposure to sunlight is highly recommended. An organic skincare that is mild on the skin and contains soothing and organic ingredients with a good SPF is the most preferable for your skin.
