We all love the summer and try to enjoy it as much as possible. Part of a healthy summer season is knowing how your skin type will react to the sun rays since we spend a significant amount of time by the pool, the beach and outdoors in general. And, since we all have different skin types, even within our own families, it's important to know how to take proper care against the UVA sun rays. Below is a nice table put together by Rexall(TM) about Skin Types and Reaction to the Sun's Rays.

Find your skin type and those of the rest of your family members, and see how the sun rays affect your skin types.

About The Author

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
