Got Sunburn? MedRite Offers Tips On Staying Safe in The Summer Sun This Season, Manhattan, New York

Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and get some fresh air, but there is nothing worse than suffering from sunburn. Sunburns can be a serious medical issue and anyone spending time outdoors should take the proper steps to prevent sun damage. MedRite, Lower Manhattan’s premier urgent care center, is dedicated to offering the best advice and services for a range of medical issues this season.

Here are a few basic tips for staying safe in the sun this summer:

  • Wear sunscreen: Sunscreens of SPF 45+ is recommended along with chapstick to protect your lips. Don’t forget to reapply after you’ve had a dip in the swimming pool and don’t forget to apply everywhere your skin is exposed. This includes ears, tops of feet, hands, necks, and scalp.
  • Drink tea. Teas, particularly green teas, provide the body with an abundance of useful antioxidants. Studies have shown that teas help to prevent the development of skin tumors. When directly applied to the skin, tea extracts also offer photo-protection against ultraviolet light. It is also an easy way to stay hydrated in warm temperatures.
  • Keep covered up. Take a light shawl or white linen shirt to throw over your swim suit once you get out of the water. Wear a wide-brimmed hat or use a big umbrella for added protection.

If you find yourself suffering from sunstroke and need urgent care, visit MedRite immediately. Be sure to take proper precaution when spending your days outdoors this summer. Call (212) 826-7777 to find out more information about their affordable medical care all season long.
