How to help people understand the danger of the sun UV radiation and what measures can they take to protect their skin while having a day on the beach swimming and surfing?
"Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can be dangerous and cause skin damage, including sunburn, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer. To protect your skin while spending time at the beach, you can take the following measures:
- Wear protective clothing, such as long-sleeved shirts, pants, and a wide-brimmed hat.
- Apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with a high SPF (30 or higher) to exposed skin.
- Seek shade, especially during peak UV hours, typically from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Wear polarized sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV radiation.
- Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours and after swimming or sweating.
By taking these precautions, you can help reduce your risk of skin damage from the sun's UV radiation."
"Sun tanning is not safe. Tanning, whether from the sun or from indoor tanning beds, exposes your skin to harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which can cause damage to your skin cells and increase your risk of skin cancer. In addition to increasing your risk of skin cancer, sun tanning can also cause premature aging, sunburn, and other skin damage. It is recommended to avoid sun tanning and to take measures to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation."
