The problem most of us face when on the beach is to protect our skin from sun damage, whether you stay on the shade or swim in the sea you need to make sure that you have taken steps to avoid the sun burns or minimize the sun burns.

Wear proper clothing

Most of the time skin on the body gets burnt quite easily, to avoid this you can wear a ladies zip up rash vest to cover up your shoulders and hands. These are the biggest parts that gets burnt easily and prone to rashes. It is important to cover up while you are lurking around the beach. When in water it is fine but when you are sitting or walking in the beach you need to cover these parts to avoid them from burning. If you want to sun bathe, sun bathe for a while and avoid over expose to sun. Your skin decays really fast when exposed to too much Ultra violet rays.

Wear minimal make up

When on the beach, you can cover up your body by wearing a rashie. But for your face you need to do a lot more to save the skin. Skin in the face is more prone to damage. Wear the minimum amount of make up when going to the beach. Problem is the makeup makes the sun damage even worse, it can burn and damage your skin even more. Be sure to apply plenty of sun scream on your face to avoid burning. Take an after sun care cream or simple aloe Vera cream to apply after being exposed to sun.

Rinse off the salt water immediately

Salt water dries your skin really fast. So that with the sun light on your skin can do more harm than ever. So as soon as you get out of the water wash your skin and if possible re apply the sun cream before sitting on the beach. If you don’t like to keep doing this, you can apply sun cream or a moisturizer after you dry up.

Carry an umbrella and a sun shade

The biggest problem with most beaches is that you don’t get plenty of trees to lie under and get shade. So you have to create your own shade. You need to take a sun shade or an huge umbrella to shield yourself from the hot sun rays. Sometimes most people think it is fun to stay on the beach and get that nice tan, but over exposing will only result in severe sun burns.
