All skin types burn. Let's get that cleared up once and for all. From the palest to the darkest tone if you are outside exposed for an undetermined length of time in the sun without protection for your skin, you will eventually burn. So if you're in awe of your dark skinned friend because you think he or she doesn't burn, think again. Another thing, if you think moving to the North Pole will hinder you from getting sun burn, wrong again. Even if there is snow outside up to the roof tops and it's below zero outside, if you are out in the sun that's shining brightly, you can still get burned. Really. Our skin is very sensitive to all of the elements that inhabit this world and it's up to us to protect them because Mother Nature can be very grueling when she feels like it. Here are some tips to protecting your skin whether you're in the hottest to coldest climate on this planet we call Earth.
