Planning ahead will allow you to take care of yourself and stay safe while you enjoy your time outdoors this summer! These tips apply whenever you’ll be outside, so keep these in mind all summer! 1. Use Sunscreen Always wear sunscreen to protect your skin when you are outdoors. Even if it is cloudy! Use SPF 30 or higher and reapply every couple hours to prevent sunburns. 2. Best Time to be Outside It’s best to limit sun exposure as much as possible between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun is strongest. Since that is a large portion of the day, look for shade when you are outside during those hours. 3. Wear the Right Stuff Wearing light, breathable cotton, sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen are all effective ways to keep your body safe from sun exposure or overheating. Take the time to check the weather in the morning. 4. Drink Plenty of Water Lemonade, iced tea, soda, and coffee do not count! These drinks contain alot of sugar, which can contribute to dehydration. Instead, try some ice water with lemons. Or if you are looking to try something different, try some infused water with cucumbers or watermelon!
