How to Avoid Sunburn While on Vacation, Orange Beach, Alabama

Whether you're treating yourself to some solo travel or planning a trip with family and friends, hitting the beach for a vacation getaway never fails to delight. The view from oceanfront condos, the sound of the waves hitting the shores, and watching your kids playing in the sand will put you at ease. But, if you or your loved ones have sensitive skin, worrying about sunburn may mar your experience. Here are a few ways to avoid sunburn so you and your little ones can spend more time under the sun.

3 Ways to Prevent Sunburn

1. Avoid the Sun's Peak Hours

People end up with sunburns when they stay outdoors without protection, especially when ultraviolet levels peak—10 a.m. to 2 p.m. During this span, observe nature from the comfort of an oceanfront condo. Share a meal, or play indoor games with your kids. Schedule outdoor activities in the morning, and get out the door early. Later in the afternoon, when ultraviolet (UV) radiation levels are lower, you can return to the seashore.

2. Apply Sunscreen

Lounging in the sun oceanfront condosfor hours exposes your epidermis—the skin's outermost layer—to sunburn-causing UVB rays. Staying in the shade doesn't shield you from the sun. Although clouds can filter UVB rays, they can't protect you from UVA radiation, which even passes through glass. Harmful rays age the skin and may cause cancer. Protect your skin by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.

3. Wear Sun-Protective Accessories

Before stepping out of an oceanfront condo, wear protective accessories. Arm yourself against the sun's damaging rays by wearing wide-brimmed hats and protective sunglasses while displaying your sense of style. Shop for sun-protective beachwear and swimming apparel to cut your exposure. Clothing with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of 50, for example, blocks 98% of sunburn-causing UV rays.


Remember these sunburn-prevention tips so you can protect yourself and your family while vacationing on the beach.
