Get away from sun burn, you should… 0

Too much unprotected exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun will cause sun burn.

Sun burn symptoms may include redness of the skin, pain and tenderness, over swelling, headache or fever. Long term sun exposure may also result in wrinkles and aging. Thus it is quite essential for sun shading protection when you are doing outdoor activies or working outdoor in summer. Most of the damage caused by over sun exposure could be prevented.

Below are some of the protection ideas:

1. Wear long sleeves, long pants, sunglasses and a hat with a brim
Protect yourself with clothing is the most physical and effective way against sun exposure. This could help filter the UV and act as the first guard.

2. Use sunscreen
Before going outside, sunscreen should be applied at least 20 minutes ahead of the outing. And you need to reapply sunscreen each 2 hours in the sun to replenish the protection. And SPF30 or higher will be suitable for outdoor activities.

3. Find places or shelter that could shade you underneath
A shady place or shelter is recommended for a long time activity outside in the sun. This is particularly important between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm, when the UV light is the strongest. You could find a building, or build a sun shading area by yourself. An outdoor umbrella with stand will be a choice when you want to fix an area for setting up a table or chairs for chats or having some drinks. If the outdoor activity is planned in unfixed place, then a sun shade sail will be a better choice, as it is more versatile for fixing on any existing place with free size or shape. When you stay on the beach or having activities outside without any fixing material for the sun sail, you may consider getting an instant pop up beach tent or portable outdoor tent.
