Is there anything better than a gorgeous sunny day? Nothing feels better than the warm sun on your skin!! When the sun is out, more people spend time doing outdoor activities with family and friends. It is important to be aware, however, that sun exposure has both positive and negative effects.
Positive effects of the sun include warmth (infrared radiation), light (visible light), and vitamin D3 synthesis in the body. Sunlight also enhances people’s moods and kills pathogens. Despite these advantages, overexposure to UV radiation can also have adverse health effects, including sunburn, premature ageing, skin cancers, diseases of the eye, and immune suppression.
Before going out to enjoy the good weather, make sure you are aware of the risks associated with prolonged exposure to the sun and the measures you can take to protect yourself and your family! We carry a great line of Sun care products in our beach store as well as after sun. Our beach Sportbrella’s have SPF50 material that give you a cool, protected home base!
- Plan to be outside in the early morning or late afternoon.
- Stay in the shade and out of the hot sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
- If you are in the sun between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., wear a hat with a wide brim and apply a high SPF sunscreen often to protect your skin from sunburn.
- Wear sunglasses that provide UVA and UVB protection.
- Use a sunscreen lotion or cream that is SPF 15 or more. SPF means Sun Protection Factor.
- Use a sunscreen that says “broad-spectrum” on the label. It will screen out most of the UVA and UVB rays.
- Put sunscreen on your skin 20 minutes before you go out and reapply 20 minutes after being out in the sun to ensure even application of the product and better protection.
- Don’t forget your lips, ears and nose. These parts of your body burn easily.
- Sunscreen gets washed off by water and sweat. So, put more sunscreen on after you go swimming or if you are sweating.
- Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards.
- Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone. Even at a public pool or a lifeguarded beach, use the buddy system!
- Ensure that everyone in the family learns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate Red Cross water orientation and Learn-to-Swim courses.
- Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child’s life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water.
- Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.
- Establish rules for your family and enforce them without fail. For example, set limits based on each person’s ability, do not let anyone play around drains and suction fittings, and do not allow swimmers to hyperventilate before swimming under water or have breath-holding contests.
- Even if you do not plan on swimming, be cautious around natural bodies of water including ocean shoreline, rivers and lakes. Cold temperatures, currents and underwater hazards can make a fall into these bodies of water dangerous.
- If you go boating, wear a life jacket! Most boating fatalities occur from drowning.
- Avoid alcohol use. Alcohol impairs judgment, balance and coordination; affects swimming and diving skills; and reduces the body’s ability to stay warm.
- Take only memories, leave only footsteps. Please ensure any and all garbage is disposed of in proper areas OR taken home with you.
- The city of Burlington has a no dog policy on it’s beach. Please leave Fido at home during your beach visits.
- Respect other people around you, everyone is trying to have a great time.
