How To Avoid Sun Radiation At The Beach
During a stay at the beach, the amount of sun radiation absorbed by the skin is enormous. Direct sun light at the beach can cause skin burns and effect skin cancerous development. Here are some guidelines for you to follow, to make sure you and your family are safe from sun radiation.
1. It is best not to be at the sun between 11:00-15:00. At noon hours the UVB radiation is at it’s highest level.
2. If you are at the beach during noon hours, make sure to stay under dark shade.
3. Apply SPF creams on the skin, 30 minutes before the exposure to the sun. Remember to re-apply the SPF sun guard lotions every 30-60 minutes.
4. If you swim or play in the sea, or do water activity, make sure you use water resistance SPF creams. Regular creams will wash off.
5. Use sun block creams with Full-Spectrum protection. Only these SUN-Block creams protect your skin from both UVA&UVB radiation.
6. Wear UPF swim suits. These full body sun guard suits block most of the UV rays. Check for the UPF 50 rating (or 50+), they will bloc/reflect 99% of the incoming rays.
7. When at the sun wear UPF hat. The UPF hat protects your face from UV radiation, and helps reduce skin aging, sun spots, wrinkles and skin discoloration.
8. When at the beach you must wear a pair of UV filter glasses. The sun’s rays reflect from the sea and from the white beach sands.
9. If you visit the beach frequently, than you might want to have a UV block wide sun umbrella. These ‘solar guard umbrellas’ block UVA rays which can penetrate clouds, clothes and glass. Solar guard umbrellas reflect and block 99% of the UV rays (short and long rays).
10. Drink water.. as much as the sun might have long term effects on your skin. Dehydration is am immediate risk too. Drinking water helps the skin be flexibility, elastic and normal cell production.
