Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen

As Baz Luhrmann once said: "Wear sunscreen."

"If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists." 

As we know, if you persist in not wearing sunscreen or protecting yourself in the summer sun, you could be at risk and have more chance of developing skin diseases, most notably skin cancers.

Despite the health warnings, many holidaymakers still forget to take the tops off their sun tan oil and rub into their skin. So, with this in mind, let's take a look at some of the top tips for protecting yourself against the sun during your Algarve holiday:

There really is no excuse not to wear sunscreen. Regardless of clouds in the sky or the sun not shining as bright, you must get into the habit of putting your sun cream on every day throughout your stay to ensure you are protected at all times.

- There are many types of sunscreen to choose from to make lavering on sunscreen a less time consuming activity, as well as covering all areas of your body exposed to sunlight. For example, protective spray and lip balm/lipstick contain sun protection factor (SPF) to stop specific areas of your skin from burning. You may also want to consider using factor 30 or higher.

- It is recommended to re-apply your sunscreen every two hours, especially if you are in and out of the water at the beach or poolside.

- The sun is at its strongest between the times of 10:00am-16:00pm. Consider the amount of time you are spent directly in the sun during this period by retiring to shaded areas on and off throughout the day. 

- If you are holidaying in The Algarve with younger members of your family such as babies under the age of 6 months old, you should also cover them in the shade throughout the day. In addition, there are clothes and swimming costumes for babies made with special sun-protective materials to ensure protection is maintained.

- Closely followed by your sunscreen, other items that can be used to protect yourself against harmful sunlight should be your sunglasses and a sun hat for added protection.

- If you are currently taking medication, be cautious that you may be more sensitive to the sun. These include specific types of antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, antifungals, blood pressure medications, and chemotherapies.

-It also has a positive impact on your immune system
-You can get a good night's rest of an evening
-You feel better in yourself
