Enjoy the Bahamas with Adequate Sun Protection
by Fred Coolridge
Crystal clear turquoise waters, endless white sand beaches,
perfect temperate weather- a vacation in the Bahamas is heavenly.
It is easy to wile away the hours of the day under the hot Bahamas
sun, reading a book or sipping a cocktail. Unfortunately, your
dream vacation can be less than perfect if you do not take certain
precautions while basking in the sun.
The islands of the Bahamas have earned their reputation as popular
tourist destinations in large part due to the weather. The islands
have a temperate climate of 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit throughout
the year, and the sun is almost always shining. To enjoy your
trip to the Bahamas to the fullest, it is wise to be aware of
the dangers of the sun and protect yourself from its potentially
dangerous ultra-violet rays.
Short of staying out of the sun completely, the best method
of sun protection is to wear sunscreen. Dermatologists recommend
that you wear a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 8, but an SPF
15 is generally thought to be ideal. Sunscreen should be applied
liberally 30 minutes prior to sun exposure and should be reapplied
throughout the day. Different skin types will handle the suns
rays in varying degrees. Ensure yourself that the SPF protection
in your sunscreen will suffice by carefully assessing your skin
and its needs. Be aware that the suns rays are hottest
between the hours of 11 am and approximately 3 pm. During this
time, it is wise to give your skin some time out of the sun;
perhaps you can take refuge under the shady palm trees.
In addition to sunscreen, you should always wear a hat with
a brim wide enough to offer sun protection. Do not forget to
sufficiently cover your body with a light-weight cotton long-sleeved
shirt when you suspect that your skin has had enough sun. Finally,
be sure to provide your body with an adequate amount of water.
Becoming dehydrated in the hot Bahamas sun can make you very
ill and can cost you a day of your vacation.
Beware, aside from a nasty sunburn or dehydration, the outcome
of over-exposure to the sun can be much worse. Skin cancer is
very serious and if left untreated can be fatal. Watch for signs
of skin cancer on your body, notably, irregular or discolored
moles or sores that bleed and do not heal. You should be checking
yourself from head to toe and do not forget the top of your
Sunscreen helps build a barrier against the suns harmful
ultra-violet rays; it not only decreases your chances of sunburn,
but also helps safeguard your body from skin cancer. It takes
little time and preparation to safely enjoy the wonderful rays
of the Bahamas sun!
