Pro Tip Day 11 Protect Your Skin

Protecting your skin from the sun sounds like common sense, but with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing us to stay inside all the time, we all but sprint out the door at the prospect of fresh air.

GlobalGolf is here to remind you that taking these simple steps will help you make the most of your outdoor time while also protecting your skin. The best part? Establishing safe sun habits now will have lifelong benefits, on and off the course.

1. Wear Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a product in every professional golfer’s bag - is it in yours? Whether you are playing 9 holes or walking around your neighborhood, sunscreen prevents skin cancer (and wrinkles!). Apply your sunscreen 30 minutes prior to your round. Dermatologists recommend a minimum of SPF 50 (especially on your face), which should be reapplied every two hours, or more often if it’s a particularly hot day. Look for products that contain Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide as the active ingredients.

2. Wear Hats

Believe it or not, but you can get a sunburn on your scalp - even with hair protecting it! We recommend bucket hats because you receive full coverage of your head and face. With the Nike UV Bucket Hat, you also get a dri-FIT material that keeps you cool and comfortable. Bonus Pro Tip: it’s also reversible!

3. Wear Sunglasses

If you want to ensure your eyes are also protected, pick out a fun pair of sunglasses. Oakley is one of the most popular brands on Tour with its athletic frames and UV-protection lenses. Both comfortable and durable, these sunglasses are a win-win in style and functionality.

4. Wear UV-Protected Clothing

This may come as a surprise, but did you know you can wear sun-protection clothing? With its UV ray-blocking material, these shirts allow you to wear just a little less sunscreen. Golfers love these long-sleeved yet cooling shirts; they are in high demand, especially out west in the deserts.

5. Wear Proper Shoes

Have you ever gotten a flip flop sunburn? Trust us, it’s not fun. By wearing any of Nike’s spikeless golf shoes, you not only have excellent foot support during all your outdoor activities, but you are also preparing yourself for the 2020 golf season.

There you have it - five simple items to remember before stepping out the door. Enjoy the sunshine!
