As an employee of a skin care manufacturer based in Colorado, I know the sun is both a blessing and a curse. The sun can help supplement electric power, heat and other alternative forms of energy. In Colorado, we have 300 days of sunshine each year. It makes solar a truly viable energy alternative. Like millions of Americans, I am trying to harness the power of the sun by adding solar panels on my home.
The sun is also important to overall good health. Sun exposure is one of the best ways to get Vitamin D. Vitamin D helps to absorb calcium contributing to bone growth and strength. It also helps to prevent a variety of disease and has been found to help treat depression. Sun exposure helps improve your mood and sense of well-being.
Like many things, however, sun exposure can also be a double-edged sword. Unprotected sun exposure causes wrinkles, premature aging and significantly increases the risk of skin cancer. Colorado is known for its outdoor lifestyle. Coloradans and our many visitors, love to camp, fish, hike, ski, cycle, swim, raft and a enjoy an endless array of outdoor activities. All these activities mean sun exposure and the possibility of sun damage. If you have a healthy active lifestyle, wearing sunscreen every day should be a habit, like brushing your teeth, no matter where you live.
