Day 4 – Sunscreen

Just like drinking enough water, we know you’ve heard it before. We cannot stress enough the importance of applying sunscreen, even if you’re not on the beach. Get yourself a few great sunscreens and pop them in your beach bag so you don’t forget.

Make sure to apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before exposure and remember to reapply it after swimming or every hour or so. One thing you need to look out for is broad-spectrum protection – this means both UVA and UVB protection. Try, Garnier Ambre Solaire UV Sensitive Protection Lotion, R129.99.

    Though sunscreen may help prevent or even reduce sunburn, it doesn’t necessarily protect you from skin cancer. Since you’re not burning, you may tend to stay out in the sun longer. That extended exposure may lead to skin cancer. On the other hand, without the use of sunscreen you would be more likely to seek shelter sooner.

    Sunscreen is a must all year round. Any part that is exposed needs protection! Remember the tops of your feet and ears.
