Sun love, not sunburn

Stay safe in the sun

Stay safe in the sun

We all love sitting with the family on Brighton beach. It’s safe, it’s clean and it’s so much fun. But take care, at times it gets a lot hotter than you might think and before you know it, it’s lobster time!
With the massive bank holiday approaching and loads of people visiting the city – some with families, others with stag and hen parties – it’s time for some expert sun protection advice.
Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll go home happy and rested, not battered and knackered!
• Avoid the midday sun
• Cover up: we all like a tan, but it’s more important to protect your skin. Wear caps and hats and lightweight clothing.
• Find out your skin type, some people need more protection than others. Consider how much protection you should have, and investigate UVB/UVA rays – the sun emits both.
• Use creams to protect your skin: Apply before you go out, not afterwards and check they are in date, then re-apply throughout the day.
• Children have especially sensitive skin so keep an eye on your youngsters. If in doubt, give them a break under a parasol between 11am and 3pm when the sun is at its strongest.
• In fact, give yourself a break during these hours, too. If Brighton’s recent weather is anything to go by, you’ll still have plenty of time to tan.
