Sun Safety Tips For Powerboaters
When the weather is warm, it’s hard to resist the desire to go powerboating. Once your feet hit the dock, it’s easy to get caught up in all the festivities. However, if you don’t want to get off your boat with a terrible sunburn, it’s a good idea to take precautions. The tips below may help you avoid an uncomfortable and miserable situation.
Wear Protective Gear
Before you head out on the water, make sure you have protective gear on your person. You should have a wide-brimmed hat within reach. A pair of sunglasses is also something you should pack for your trip. When you aren’t in the water, cover your bathing suit with clothing with a high UPF rating. This helps shield your skin from the harsh rays of the sun. If you shop around, you can find things that make you look stylish, and you won’t have to worry about becoming a human lobster. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Slather On the Sunscreen
Of course, it’s not enough to wear special clothing. If you want to ward off sunburns, you have to use sunscreen. Choose a bottle of sunscreen with a high SPF rating and apply the sunscreen to any exposed skin. This includes your ears or parts in your hair. Do this as soon as you get on the boat – don’t wait an hour before you do anything. Failure to apply sunscreen right away may lead to problems. If you find yourself confused about brands and SPF levels, talk to an expert on the matter.
