Sun tanning is perfect but there are more ways to have fun with your friends and family at the beach.
Before heading to the water, let's check out the useful things to keep in mind while going to the beach.
PROTECT YOURSELF FROM HARMFUL RAYS
THE SUN'S RAYS CONTAIN UV RAYS. Ultraviolet rays are invisible to the naked eye and do not make any difference to the feeling of warmth. We are exposed to UV rays, without even realising it. These rays penetrate deep beneath the skin and trigger the ageing process. UVA rays cause wrinkles and brown spots. UVB rays tend to work on the surface and stimulate the production of melanin.
THEY CAN CAUSE SUNSTROKE. An overdose of UVA and UVB rays, combined with insufficient hydration, can result in a serious case of sunstroke. Even if you are already tanned, you still need proper sun protection, even if you are not prone to sunburn.
TRY OUT DIFFERENT SPORTS
Want to spend some quality time at the beach? Swimmers can head out for an open-water swim in the sea. Parents can teach their kids to bodyboard, fly kites or play frisbees. If you prefer more exciting group activities, try surfing or beach volleyball!
