Being Safe While Having Fun in the Sun

0 Comment

It is summer time and millions of Americans are flocking to the beach.  They bask in the sun, swim in the water, sip on drinks with friends, and embrace the summer heat.  These commonplace summer activities all sound like fun ways to enjoy the nice weather.  What many of these beach goers don’t realize, is that while immersing themselves in these "typical" summer activities, they could be putting a damper on their health and their lives.

Every year in the United States, 1 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed.  Each hour, there is a death from melanoma.  These tragic cases are all caused by the sun.  In order to decrease these statistics, ensure safety and still enjoy the warmth of the beach, individuals must take precautions to shield themselves from the strong summer sun.  In order to avoid damaging your skin and health from the sun, while still enjoying time on beaches, try our sunscreens, hats, and umbrellas!

Dehydration is another danger that is prevalent as a result of excessive sun exposure.  Dehydration occurs when the body loses too much water as a result of excess s sweating, vomiting, and/or diarrhea.  It takes only 1-2% of your body’s ideal water content to cause dehydration, which makes clear why it is extremely easy to become dehydrated on the beach.  It is recommended that an average size person drink about 8 8-oz glasses of water per day.  To assure hydration, try using one of our water bottles to store cold water while on the beach on hot summer days!

Although there are safety concerns that accompany a day at the beach, it is also crucial to enjoy the nice weather, relax, and have fun.  Check out some of our beach towels, chairs, flips flops, and beach balls to add positively to your time spent at the beach!
