Reading Time: 4 minutes

Expressing yourself using words is a beautiful thing. Being able to do it using foreign languages is an extraordinary achievement. Some people find it more difficult to start communicating in a language other than their mother tongue to express themselves.

This post is for those who have some basic knowledge of a foreign language but are still struggling to overcome the fear of speaking!

I mean let’s face it, it can be overwhelming. After observing plenty of such cases as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages, I have come up with some strategies to get past your fears and speak in the target language freely.

The feeling of being judged, fear of making mistakes, or sounding funny are legitimate points, however, they are preventing you from living up to your true potential.

The first thing you should do is to start working on changing your mindset. Obviously not believing in your ability to speak is not going to help at all, right? So, what should I do, you may ask?

Consider the tips below!

You have heard about SPF and most likely know the usual “the higher the number the better”. But what exactly does this mean?

The other day, I was having an argument with my sister about what exactly the SPF index means and how we should use sunscreen accordingly. It turns out that many people look for the SPF index on the label but that’s about it.

I asked a few of my friends and they also didn’t know anything else besides “the higher the number the better”.

Summer is almost around the corner and the sunny days are more and more frequent. Whether you can go to the beach (which I am totally jealous of), go out in the sun, take the dog for a walk or simply sunbathe on your balcony or in the yard, you will definitely need sunscreen.

Did you know the skin is the largest external organ in our body? It is only natural to do your best to maintain it’s stability; the so-called homeostasis.

Any imbalances can cause detrimental effects such as wrinkles, rashes, skin cancer, blister, and immune disorder to name just a few.

The best thing you can do to your skin is to protect it from the harmful sun rays. According to cancer.org “It’s not possible (or healthy) to avoid sunlight completely, but there are ways to help ensure you’re not getting too much sun”.

One such recommended way is to use sunscreen on the parts of the body that are not covered with clothes. But how do you pick the right one?

In this post, I will go over what to look for on a label, how to avoid getting tricked, and the difference between the 3 types of UV radiation (UVA, UVB, and UVC rays). Here I have also done the hard work for you (as always😊) and managed to provide you with the best sunblocks list on the market.
