How to Prepare for Spring

Spring is finally here! Flowers are blooming and the weather is changing. Many people enjoy spring, but there are many important things to keep in mind. It is important to know what to use to take care of yourself and be prepared for spring.

Take Care of Your Skin

Although spring is a fun time to spend outside and get some sun, it is important to take care of your skin. It is important to wear sunscreen and bug repellent. During spring, bugs tend to come out and can bite you. You need to take care of yourself and use bug repellent so that the bugs don’t get close to you. If you get bitten by a bug you should take care of that bite so it does not get infected. It is important to use bug repellent to take care of your skin.While it is important to use bug repellent, it is also important to use sunscreen. Many people get sunburned during the spring; therefore, it is important to protect your skin. While getting a tan is good, it is important to not overdo it. Also, remember to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays. According to a consumerreports.org article, if you spend more than a couple of hours outdoors, you must apply sunscreen again.

Wear Sunglasses

While it is vital to take care of your skin, it is also vital to remember that you need to protect your eyes. In the spring, the sun is stronger and you need to wear your sunglasses when you go outside. You need to take care of your eyes because too much exposure can cause damage to your eye. According to the National Eye Institute, the sun’s effect can cause cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium. Cataracts cause a clouding of the eye's lens that can cause the vision to blur. Macular degeneration results from the damage of the retina and is the leading cause of blindness. Finally, pterygium is a tissue growth of the white part of the eye which can alter the curve of the eyeball.Although it is important to wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV rays, excessive use of sunglasses may be bad too. It is advised for you to wear your glasses only when you feel it is necessary. Wearing sunglasses all the time can impact your eye health too. Remember that sunglasses are a stylish accessory, but they also help you protect your eyes.

Put Away Your Winter Clothes

Once you start to feel the weather get warm during spring, you can start to put your winter clothes away. You can start to prepare for the spring by bringing out all of your springtime clothing articles. Whether they are floral prints, white colors, or bright colors you can take the time to organize your closet or your drawers to keep your spring clothes handy. Floral prints, animal prints, and bright colors are associated with spring. Bring out your favorite clothes and wear them during the spring!
