Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) April 14, 2015
With the global climate becoming warmer and dryer, and with summer approaching, the dangers of exposure to direct solar radiation are increasing. As a result, sunscreen protection is now recommended year round.* According to radio host and fresh water advocate Sharon Kleyne, while sunscreen is increasingly indispensable to skin health, additional skin protection measures can improve the effectiveness of sunscreen and lessen the chances of severe sunburn that can lead to dehydration, heat stroke, DNA damage, premature skin aging and skin cancer.

Kleyne will present her views on climate change, sunscreen and skin protection on her radio broadcast of April 13, 2015. For podcasts of that and other past shows, go to http://www.SharonKleyneHour.com.
The syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour™ Power of Water® radio show, hosted by fresh water advocate Sharon Kleyne, is heard weekly on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes. The education oriented show is sponsored by Bio-Logic Aqua® Research, a global research and technology center founded by Kleyne and specializing in fresh water, the atmosphere, water vapor and dehydration. Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® is the Research Center’s signature product for dry and dehydrated skin and eyes.
Although sunscreen is outstanding at absorbing potentially damaging ultraviolet radiation and at creating a moisture barrier to prevent the loss of the skin’s natural water content to evaporation, according to Kleyne, users should be aware of sunscreen’s limitations and avoid making sunscreen their only sun protection.
The primary limitation of sunscreen, Kleyne explains, is that the moisture barrier can also cause a backup of toxins in the skin and body that would normally be excreted through the skin along with perspiration. The toxin backup can result in an inflammatory immune response that could be dehydrating and could actually increase the possibility of heat stroke.
Kleyne’s advice? Whether or not sunscreen is applied, the body should always be well hydrated before going out in the sun and should remains well hydrated while in the sun and afterwards. In other words, drink more water.
The very best solar protection, according to Kleyne, is light, loose clothing, a wide-brimmed hat and shade. If the body begins feeling overheated, clammy, weak or dizzy, get out of the sun immediately and drink small sips of water until the problem subsides.
At the first sign of sunburn, cover up and then hydrate the skin with a pure water atmospheric mist such as Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® from Kleyne’s Bio-Logic Aqua® Research.
Apply sunscreen any time, summer or winter, according to Kleyne, if there is a chance that skin will be exposed to direct sunlight. Also apply immediately after a bath or shower, when skin is at its most hydrated. The sunscreen’s moisture barrier effect will help the skin retain water no matter what the surrounding atmospheric conditions.
Kleyne also recommends the use of make-up that has a sunscreen SPF rating.
For maximum body and skin hydration, says Kleyne, drink a minimum of eight glasses of fresh water per day. Water is most beneficial when ingested in full glasses rather than sipped. Juice and tea, while beneficial, are not counted towards the eight glasses. Water containing large amounts of sugar, fat, caffeine, sodium or alcohol are dehydrating. Children ten or under should drink half their body weight in ounces per day.
