    How to stay safe in the sun

    Whether you are on holiday to a hotter climate than you are used to, or enjoying a heatwave in your own country, there are certain things you need to do and avoid to enjoy your time spent in the sun completely safely.

    The sun elevates your mood and can make a day out that much nicer, but it can also cause damage to your skin and health if you are not able to look after yourself properly in the heat.

    Here are some tips for enjoying sunny days safely.

    Get the right sunscreen

    If you are out and about in the sun all day then the most important thing you can carry with you is a good quality sunscreen.

    You should reapply this periodically throughout the day to protect your skin, and should always choose an SPF protection which is really going to cover you. An SPF of 25 should be your minimum, and sunscreens often carry up to SPF100.

    Cover up

    Although it may seem counter-intuitive to cover up in the heat, having physical barriers between your skin and the sun will be far more effective than even the strongest sunscreen.

    You don’t need to be wearing jeans and thick jumpers, as this will lead to heat exhaustion, but cover up with light, filmy layers that allow the air to circulate but also cover your skin. A hat is very helpful in the hottest weather as well.

    Stay hydrated

    Make sure that you are drinking more water if you are out in the sun all day, as this will replace the fluid you lose through sweating.

    Take a bottle of water with you and refill it throughout the day. Fruit and vegetables are also a great source of water.
