Did you know that long exposure to the sun can cause a skin rash? It's important to take precautionary measures when out in the sun, especially with young ones. Read below on the preventative measures that you can be taking to enhance your vacationing in the heat:
Sunscreen: Think you put on enough sunscreen? Nope, you probably should need more! There is a technique called the "two-finger method" to ensure that your sunscreen is evenly applied. Don't forget to reapply every 2 hours!
Limit your exposure to the sun: Want to still step outside & enjoy the nice weather? Finding some shade under a tree may be a good alternative to step into after 1-2 hours under the beaming UV rays!
Cover exposed skin: This helps to protect your skin! This goes for those who are drivers for the family as well. Sometimes we forget that our arms & hands are being exposed to the sun for hours while driving & this can cause quicker aging. Consider bringing a baseball cap to avoid sunburns & rashes to the forehead. Try some thin layers to keep UV rays away, while staying cool.
