Beach Fun: How To Protect Your Skin From Sunburn

A trip to the beach wont be complete without getting a tan. But before you lie down in your favorite spot, you need to give your skin maximum protection from sunburns. Sunburns are not only painful, they are also very unattractive. But more than just that, burning your skin can cause serious diseases like skin cancer.

Sunburns result from prolonged exposure to the sun. When you burn your skin, it becomes red and very painful. If the burn is severe, you can get blisters. But just because you can have your skin burned, does not mean that you have to punish yourself by not enjoying the sun fun. Keep these tips in mind be the beach bum that youve always wanted to be minus the burns.

Sunscreen. Whatever your plans are, always apply sunscreen before heading out to the sun. Suncreens with SPF 15 protection should be enough to keep your skin protected from UVB and UVA rays. Aside from your face, legs, and arms, do not forget to apply sunscreen in your ears, scalp, and the top of your feet and toes. Apply every 2 hours while youre out in the sun. One application alone will not suffice especially if you have been dipping yourself in the water for long hours.

Wear sun protectors like hats and sunglasses. Hats and sunglasses will not only improve your beach bum aura. These accessories will keep you greatly protected from sunburn. Consider picking a hat with a wide brim. This will give your face extra protection from the rays of the sun. Not everyone knows that our scalp can be very susceptible to sunburn so aside from applying sunscreen, wear a hat to prevent your scalp from being burned. For your eyes, use tinted sunglasses. Go for lenses that block 100 percent of UVB and UVA rays.

Stay protected even when its cloudy. Many people think that just because its cloudy, the risks for sunburn are very low. This is wrong. The sun will always be out there. Sometimes, it may seem like bit scatters. Sometimes, it may be hidden by dark clouds.

Despite the health risks caused by sun, people still cant get enough of it. The idea of frolicking by the beach in your bikini sends in a feeling of summer excitement and fun.
