As much as you’ve missed the sun, and as important as it is in creating vitamin D, too much sun is a danger to your skin. Too much sun exposure can leave your skin sore, burnt and even trigger skin cancer. Use a high SPF sunscreen, preferably one that is waterproof. It’s also worth looking for formulations for athletes, so the sunscreen won’t run into your eyes.
SHIELD YOUR EYES
Wear sunglasses or a sun visor to protect your eyes. Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun can cause all sorts of eye problems, including cataracts, so be sure to buy quality sunglasses. Look for glasses with UVA and UVB protection. To be effective, your sunglasses should block light from both the top and sides – so ideally wraparound sunglasses.
