Enjoy the Bahamas with Adequate Sun ProtectionWritten by Fred Coolridge
Continued from page 1
In addition to sunscreen, you should always wear a hat with a brim wide enough to offer sun protection. Do not forget to sufficiently cover your body with a light-weight cotton long-sleeved shirt when you suspect that your skin has had enough sun. Finally, be sure to provide your body with an adequate amount of water. Becoming dehydrated in hot Bahamas sun can make you very ill and can cost you a day of your vacation.
Beware, aside from a nasty sunburn or dehydration, outcome of over-exposure to sun can be much worse. Skin cancer is very serious and if left untreated can be fatal. Watch for signs of skin cancer on your body, notably, irregular or discolored moles or sores that bleed and do not heal. You should be checking yourself from head to toe and do not forget top of your head!
Sunscreen helps build a barrier against sun’s harmful ultra-violet rays; it not only decreases your chances of sunburn, but also helps safeguard your body from skin cancer. It takes little time and preparation to safely enjoy wonderful rays of Bahamas sun!
