Slip Slop Slap - Tips for Keeping Sun Safe

Posted on

Slip, Slop, Slap and More! Sensible Ways to Stay Safe during those Warm Summer Months

Australia has experienced a very hot Summer, and with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees in Sydney over the last few weeks, it’s really got us thinking about the best ways to stay safe during those extremely hot few weeks over Summer.

Wear cotton - cotton clothing is known for its breathability and absorption, so if you wear 100% cotton clothes over those hot Summer months and on those extremely hot days, you can be confident knowing your clothing is working to keep you cool, comfortable and dry.

Keep hydrated - everyone knows that dehydration, no matter the time of year, is dangerous to your health. A great way to ensure you’re drinking enough when it’s warm is to have frequent sips of water and stop regularly to refill your glass or water bottle. By keeping hydrated you can be sure to keep cool and reduce the risk of high blood pressure, which is incredibly helpful for when the temperature is warm.

Use plenty of sunscreen - sunscreen is so important for your skin’s health when you’re out and about on those hot days, so make sure you use plenty on your skin before heading out for the day. It’s best to use sunscreen that is SPF15 or higher, and make sure you reapply every few hours or after getting wet.

Sun protective clothing and swimwear - most people like to spend a hot Summer’s day at the beach or by the pool, and by wearing sun protective clothing and swimwear you can be sure to stay safe while out in the harsh sun. Zodee stocks a fantastic range of sun protective swimwear for men, women and kids, so make sure you look out for a UPF 15 rating in the product descriptions.

Look for the shade - if you have to go out in the middle of the day it’s always best to stay in as much shade as possible. The sun’s rays are harshest during the middle of the day and the afternoon, causing you to heat up and feel uncomfortable. Always try to make sure you can find a spot in the shade to rest, or look to hide out in an airconditioned room where possible.

Summer is a fantastic time of year to get together with friends and family, relax and have many celebrations. No matter what your plans are for the Summer, make sure you stay safe, healthy and protected.
