Phoenix is usually among the hottest cities in the United States in the summer. Here, more than anywhere else in the country, practicing sun safety is essential and not a matter of preference. Let’s discuss some quick tips to protect yourself and your loved ones from the hot sun this summer.
Apply Lots of Sunscreen
Anyone in Phoenix knows sunscreen is a must-have, especially in the summer. With temperatures averaging 100 degrees Fahrenheit, there shouldn’t be any reason to leave the house without sunscreen. For best results, choose a sunscreen with a 30 SPF or higher and a broad spectrum, meaning it offers protection from both types of harmful UV rays (UVA and UVB).
Wear Protective Clothing
Now is not the time to step outside in dark clothes or heavy outfits. While that might sound like common knowledge, we sometimes don’t pay too much attention to what we wear unless when attending special events. Consider investing in protective clothing to keep you and your loved ones safe. Examples of protective clothing include:
- Clothing with light colors to reflect sunlight and heat rather than absorb it.
- Protective accessories such as sunglasses
- Breathable footwear
- Cooling apparel
- Wide-brimmed hats to protect your face and neck from the sun’s rays.
Remember to apply sunscreen on any part of the body your clothing does not cover for maximum protection.
Keep Yourself Hydrated
The heat from the sun drains a lot of moisture from our bodies in the form of sweat. In order to recover the lost moisture, it is important to stay hydrated even if you do not feel thirsty.
One great way to monitor your hydration levels is by checking the color of your urine. If it appears pale yellow or light, you’ve been doing a great job keeping yourself hydrated. On the other hand, if it’s dark yellow or has a sulfur-like smell, you need more water. Remember to keep yourself hydrated even during meals, and carry a water bottle anywhere.
Know When to Call for Help
Sometimes, as much as you may be able to do everything within your power to protect yourself from the sun, all it takes is someone else’s negligence to undo all your hard work and cause you or your loved one so much pain. For example, poor sun safety techniques at a daycare facility could be the reason your child has suffered sunburn.
Such cases are not uncommon. In 2015, two young brothers were treated for second and third-degree burns they sustained while at a daycare in Oklahoma.
Consult an experienced personal injury lawyer to evaluate your case and determine whether you might be able to hold the negligent party accountable.
Final Thoughts On Sun Safety Tips
Sun safety should be a top priority this summer, especially given that too much exposure to the sun can cause certain types of cancer. Knowing how to protect yourself from the harsh rays of the sun during extremely hot months could be the difference between enjoying the summer in Phoenix with friends and family or worrying about huge medical bills.
