Sun Safety Guide
Jul 18, 2017 3:28 PM
Spending the day at the beach should be a relaxing getaway, not a headache. We all need vitamin D, but it doesn’t take that long for people to get their daily value when they’re spending a day in the sun. Lengthy and repeated exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause a multitude of problems, so it’s important to take the proper precautions. Here are some of our suggestions on how to prepare for a day in the sun:
Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, depending on your sensitivity to sunlight, even if it is cloudy. Broad spectrum sunscreens protect your body from UVA and UVB. We carry a variety of sun screen lotions varying in SPF, for people of all ages.

Apply sunscreen liberally to all uncovered skin, taking extra care to apply to the nose, ears, neck, hands, feet, and lips (but avoid putting it inside your eyes or mouth).
Make sure you reapply every two hours, more often if you’re taking a dip in the water or if you’re breaking a sweat.
Sunscreen can be water resistant but it is important to remember that there is no such thing as waterproof sunscreen, so reapplying is necessary.
If you don’t have much hair on your head, apply sunscreen, or wear a hat. No matter your sport, or even if you’re just hitting the beach. Don one of the seasons hits, and protect yourself, in style.

It’s important to take breaks in the shade, so
grab that beach umbrella and relax in the shade every so often when you’re out
in the sun for an extended period of time.
Even if you’re just taking a stroll, UV rays don’t hide even through clouds, so
be prepared. Rain or shine, we’ve got you protected.
