Sun Protection Tips

As we all know, the sun is a natural source of vitamin D. However, mercury has risen sharply in recent days, so we must be very careful to avoid prolonged exposure to it, otherwise we will notice damage to skin and our body.

The first and most important is the depletion of the homeostatic mechanisms of the body and this leads to the initial stages of sunbathing and the most advanced heat stroke.

Second but equally important are the sunburn severity of the condition depending on the extent of the burn but also its depth. In this way, serious infections, dehydration and electrolyte disturbances are created.

The best way to avoid the above is of course prevention.

So you have to:

  • We avoid sun exposure from 11.00 am – 17.00 pm.
  • Wear a hat and light colored clothes
  • Drink enough water to keep our body hydrated
  • Take frequent baths while at sea and avoid heavy food and alcohol.
  • Protect your eyes by wearing the right glasses.
  • Protect your skin with the right sunscreen.
