Tips To Protect Yourself In The Sun
- Time of day is important: Try to limit your time in the sun between 12pm and 3pm, when the sun is the strongest. Keep an eye on the UV index. If you’ve travelled to a sunny place pay extra attention.
- Shade is great: It can be pleasant to withdraw to the shade on a warm and sunny day, and it is also very good for your skin. If you’re on the beach,
then bring a beach umbrella, but remember that sand and water, like snow and even concrete, reflect the sun’s rays.
- Sun Safe in style: Clothes are recommendable for sun protection. When possible, put on a long sleeved shirt and a wide brimmed hat.
- Sunscreen provides flexibility: Sunscreen is only number four on our list, but if you are going out to enjoy yourself in the sun and is it too hot for long clothes, then it’s a very good idea to put on a high SPF sunscreen every two hours.
- And always stay away from solariums and UV tanning beds
