Sunbathing

The original way to a bronzed complexion is still immensely popular with young people and certainly the vitamin D emitted by the sun is vital in maintaining healthy skin. However, the UV rays which bombard our skin at the same time react upon contact with human skin and cause a mild burn. Usually this burn is relatively light and simply shows up as browner skin; however, extended exposure to the sun can cause severe burning which is both painful and dangerous. Wearing sun cream is a must for all sun-goers, with a minimum SPF of 15 in the UK - even when the sun is hidden behind clouds, it carries on pumping out those UV rays. If you’re travelling to sunnier climes, take factor 30 or above to make sure you don’t suffer lasting damage, and keep the sunbathing to a minimum - you’ll get enough exposure during your normal daily activities without devoting whole days to bronzing. If you wear sun cream, keep it topped up every few hours and always put more on after swimming, as your skin burns a lot easier when it’s wet.

Children are even more susceptible to the dangers from sun exposure, so either buy special sun cream which is designed for children (and is usually fruity-smelling or sprays onto skin a different colour to show kids where they’ve missed bits) or else use a higher factor adult sun cream. Experts recommend that during any holiday in the sun, children should be wearing a minimum of factor 40 or 50. We all want our kids to be healthy but NO child should be purposefully tanning their skin. Any damage they do now will be back to haunt them as early on as their teens or 20s.
