Beach Safety Guide: Sun Protection

Too many of us don’t think about the fact that the sun can do irreparable damage to our skin. Skin cancer is a continuous threat, and not something that you should take lightly. Protecting both yourself and your kids should be a priority for you, so it’s imperative that you keep these tips in mind when you’re out on the sand.

  • Sunburns Happen Anytime: Whether it’s in the morning or early evening, you can get burned. Most of us don’t think about it when the air is cool, but as long as the sun is shining, you can be affected by it.
  • Don’t Forget to Reapply Sunscreen: If you go into the water, that will remove a lot of sunscreen from your body. Sweat can also cause it to drip off, so remember to apply another layer every so often to keep yourself and your little ones protected.
  • Wear Hats and Dark Clothes: White shirts (and other light colors) don’t block sunlight, so you can still get burned while wearing them. Instead, rely on thicker materials or darker colors. You will be a little hotter, but you won’t have to worry about your skin.
