The Importance Of Sun Protection When On Holiday

Spread the love

The sun gives you light and warmth but it can also do some serious harm to you if you do not take measures to protect yourself from its damaging rays (everything from making your skin age to giving you cancer, the sun is not to be messed with) So if you want to enjoy your holiday and protect yourself from the sun too here is how you can do that:

Put on a lot (and I mean A LOT) of sunscreen

Because you will certainly need it. If you do not apply enough sunscreen you are probably going to end up looking like a charred carrot especially if you are white or pink skinned. You will not get tanned, but charred and the sunburn is going to hurt (that is, if you are light skinned)! If you are however naturally dark skinned the effects of sunburn will not be as painful but you still need sunscreen to protect yourself against the ultra violet radiation (UV rays) that could cause plenty of skin damage.

Take precaution with your clothing

Do not wear short sleeved casual summer dresses when you know you will have to be standing in the sun all day long. And if you do plan to wear a relatively skimpy dress carry a cover-up with you and wear a wide-brimmed hat so that you do not end up burning yourself in the sun. Shield your body as much as you are able to in order to prevent UV rays from penetrating your skin. Remember to always carry a pair of sunglasses with you because, although you may not be able to see the damage being done in-and-around your eyes it does not make it any less real.

Always take precaution in general

Find cool shady areas to sit under in order to avoid being in direct sunlight. And no matter how cute you think beach dresses are, you still need to protect yourself on those very sunny days when you are going to be under the sun. Sun damage is no joke so remember to stay safe and protect yourself adequately while on holiday in a sunny location so that you do not do any serious damage to your skin. Protection from the sun is actually a key way to retain the radiance of youth so, take care.
