Hey, Summer Camp Preppers!
For today’s blog post I want to give you a few tips and pointers about having fun in the sun this summer camp season. As wonderful as it is to feel those glowing rays beaming down on your smiling face, it’s important to take the necessary precautions for hanging out in the sun.
Everything Summer Camp has a plethora of available products containing 100% natural oils and plant-based extracts that ensure your protection from harmful UV rays while being totally skin-healthy themselves.
Remember, it’s a general rule of thumb that you should apply your sunscreen a full twenty minutes before venturing out into those bright, sunny days. Also, sun screen is just as valuable on hot, overcast days in the summer.
Just because you can’t see the sun doesn’t mean it isn’t there. UV rays can still pass through a cloudy sky, so it’s just as important to use your sunscreen even when it seems like you don’t actually need it.
If you’re on a multi-day hike, you’ll definitely need to reapply throughout your time outdoors in the sun. Some sunscreens remain active longer than others so you’ll need to read the information on the back of the sunscreen product you purchase. Everything Summer Camp has sprays, lotions, wipes—we even have sun protective clothing!
Clothing with built-in sun protection is a fairly new idea in the United States. Many people wonder why you would need clothes to be sun protective when the clothing itself is already shielding you from sunrays. That’s just it, though. Everyday clothing doesn’t shield you from sunrays—not harmful UV rays, anyway.
But most people don’t realize this fact. In fact, lots of summer styles usually leave a lot of skin exposed—naturally. However, clothing with built-in sun protection is intended to cover a large amount of skin. The point in this is to keep the majority of your body protected from harmful UV rays. You won’t get too hot, though as sun protective clothing is designed to keep you cool underneath.
Have your fun in the sun. But do it the smart way and walk outside protected with sun care! And, as always, thanks for reading.
