In this brief and informative article, we take a look at how to enjoy the sun and outdoors safely this summer and festive season!
We know you want to make sure you’re safely enjoying the sunny days while visiting us, so keep in mind these tips before you venture outside.
You Got It Made In The Shade.
Avoid direct sunlight by sitting in the shade – it will feel a little cooler and you’ll minimize your exposure to UV rays. Remember the sun (and its UV rays) are hottest, with the highest UV radiation, outside between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on sunny days. So make sure to take extra safety precautions during this time!
Smart Summer Style.
Wear clothing that protects your skin. Long sleeve tops and pants made of lightweight, tightly woven fabrics are great ways to protect your skin from direct exposure to the sun. Also, many swimsuits and rash guards have UV protection built-in and are designed to stay cool and fashionable at the pool or beach.
Don’t forget about wide-brim hats, which are helpful to protect your head and face from the sun. Hats are suitable for everyone, especially important if you have thin hair or no hair.
Wear Your Sunglasses.
Your eyes are especially sensitive to UV radiation and over time, sun exposure can cause eye damage, cataracts, and even cancer to the eyes and the skin around them.
Not all sunglasses are created equal though. Look for labels that promise 100% UV protection and pick styles that cover the sides of the eyes, such as the wraparound styles.
Don’t Forget The Sunscreen!
Wear it. Every day. No exceptions. Many moisturisers and makeup products include sunscreen, so there is no excuse not to wear sunscreen daily. For the rest of the body, look for the highest SPF you can find and reapply as directed on the bottle.
Sunscreen alone won’t cut it, so it’s best if you use sunscreen together with both protective clothing and shade.
