Sunburn Prevention Tips for 2018

The warmer temperatures are here again! While you probably can’t wait to get back outside and start swimming, hiking, camping, walking, kayaking, or canoeing again – safety first. If you are feeling ill due to a sunburn, you should contact your nearest health clinic at the Lake of the Ozarks as soon as possible. Central Ozarks Medical Center is here to give you a few sunburn prevention tips for 2018.

Sunburn Prevention Tips for 2018

Tip # 1
Wear a sun hat.
Wide-brimmed hats do the best for providing the most shade and protecting your skin from the harsh effects of the sun.

Tip # 2
Wear sunscreen.
Be mindful of the SPF level on your sunscreen. You should be using at least SPF 15 but the higher the number the stronger the sunscreen.

Tip # 3
Cover up.
Modest swimsuits that cover your everything from your shoulders to your kneecaps (for women) may not be the most flattering but they do provide a lot more protection if you are looking to swim but also be as protected from the sun as you possibly can.

Tip # 4
Try to stay in the shade as much as possible between 10 am and 4 pm.
The sun is at it’s strongest at these times, so do your best to find shade or be as covered as possible.
