Seek the Shade
Depending on the day’s activities, try to stay in the shade as much as you can. Remember, it may be tempting to think that you’re safe from the sun’s harmful rays if you’re out of the sunlight, but UVA rays can still affect you. Being out of direct sunlight will not only keep you cooler, but it will also help your sunscreen to not sweat off as quickly. It’s best to avoid the sunlight from the hours between 10AM and 2PM, when the sun rays are the most intense. If you’re planning to be out in the sun during these hours, make sure that you’re wearing plenty of sunblock.
It may be hard to remember to reapply sunscreen, especially if you’re winning the cornhole championship or relaxing on a pool float, but it’s essential to reapply sunblock often to prevent burning and sun exposure. Most sunscreens will protect you for 80 minutes, so set an alert on your phone or an alarm on your watch to help you remember when it’s time to break out the sunscreen again.
Remember the Shot Glass Rule
An easy way to remember how much sunscreen you need to apply is an entire shot glass full. While this may surprise you, it’s the recommended amount for full body protection by the American Skin Society. Don’t sweat worrying about having enough sunscreen for your family or your guests. Rocky Mountain Sunscreen is available in both a quart sized pump and a gallon sized pump, so you can have plenty of sun protection on hand at all times.
Don’t Forget a Hat and Sunglasses
For those areas that sunscreen isn’t applicable, like your eyes and your scalp, it’s important to protect them from sun damage as well. Be sure to wear sunglasses that have UV 100 protection, especially around water, which can reflect the sun’s rays. A hat that offers UV protection is also important and is essential for a long day spent outside enjoying the 4th of July festivities with friends and guests.
