Research have shown that overexposure to the sun can actually promote skin cancer. This leaves many to wonder how much sun is too much sun?

Direct sun exposure for a lengthy period of time is definitely too much sun. Some jobs, however, do require that many work in the sun and unfortunately the consequences are parched skin. Should that be the case, coconut oil is the BEST thing for skin AFTER sun exposure. Try using it next time you come in from the work, beach or pool to deeply moisturize parched skin, or to quickly heal that awful sunburn.
