Sun Safety On Holiday

I can't believe a week today I will at this very moment be lay on the beach for 10 whole days! It's a trip I have been planning for a year and I can actually hear the sunshine calling my name. My plan is to lie n the beach and get a good tan, followed by a few cocktails in the evening. The team over at Holiday Gems create the post The Lobster Look: Tips On Sun Safety This Summer, which has some top tips for enjoying the sun safely. I thought pre holiday I would share some of my top tips for safety in the sun.

Get A Good Suncream 
Pretty self-explanatory, if you are going to be in the sun for any amount of time. Reapply regularly an always reapply after you have been in the water, even if it's waterproof. Make sure you get the right level of protection for skin type.
Take A Break From The Sun
Most of the Spanish Islands take a siesta, take one too! Enjoy a little nap whilst the sun is at its hottest. It really does refresh you.
Stay Hydrated
A hot sun really dries your skin out and a loss of moisture makes you dehydrated. Make sure you drink at least your recommended 2 litres a day, especially when you are in hot sunshine.
Use A UV Tent
If you have little ones and you taking them along to the beach a UV tent is a great idea. It offers them a place to shade from the sun and they are protected whilst in there.

  8. Best Tip for keeping safe when out in the Summer Sun, or any sunshine :- Is probably Slip, Slap, Slop. Which I believe may have originated from Australia. Slip on a T- Shirt ( some clothing has UVA protection nowadays), Slap on a hat / sun hat, and slop on some Sun Screen ( probably guidelines regarding factor, and how often to reapply).

    Limit time spent in the sunshine, make use of shaded areas. Sufficient refreshments :- cool fresh water etc.

    Enjoy the good weather in moderation. As there are risks and Dangers we should be aware of. One being skin cancer. Don't just live for the moment. Aim to enjoy what life time and quality you can attain.
