Sun Protection Tips
Sun Protection Tips
A Hawaii vacation is never complete without a day in the beach or some fun in the sun. But as you explore all that Hawaii has to offer, be sure to take note of these sun protection tips.
Apply sunscreen property. For sunscreen to be effective, you will need a thick layer. A full ounce of sunscreen is recommended. Don’t forget to put sunscreen on your ears, around your neck, on your hands, and on the bottom of your feet. Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before you go out and re-apply sunscreen every 2 hours.
Cloudy out? Don't forget the sunscreen! Some UV rays will be reflected by clouds and water, but some still get through, so even if it’s a bit cloudy you will still need to put on sunscreen.
Use the proper sunscreen. Find a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30. If you're going swimming in the ocean, though, please be sure you're using reef-safe sunscreen to help protect ocean life. Avoid sunscreens that contain the following: Oxybenzone, Butylparaben, Octinoxate, 4-Methylbenzylidine Camphor.
Wear protective clothing. Darker colored clothing provide better protection than lighter ones. Try to also wear clothes with a tighter weave as UV radiation can still pass through small holes in a fabric’s weave.
Protect your eyes with UV-blocking sunglasses. Go with a pair of sunglasses that blocks 99 percent to 100 percent UVA and UVB radiation.
