« Back to Articles

With summer just around the corner, the sun shines brighter on our beautiful island, but it also increases the risk of dermatitis, burns, and other chronic conditions such as skin cancer. Here are some tips to help you enjoy the sun safely:

First, the sunscreen
Use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and apply generously before going outside.

Set a timer and reapply!
Remember to reapply every two hours, especially if you are swimming or sweating.

The shade can be fun, too…
Protect your skin from direct sunlight, especially during peak radiation hours.

Basking in the tropical sun is one of the most popular year-round activities. It is also important to give our skin the care it needs after prolonged exposure to the sun. To do this, try to stay hydrated, use after-sun products with aloe vera and other moisturizing ingredients to soothe the skin, and wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.

Simply put, protecting yourself from the sun and taking care of your skin and the skin of your loved ones is essential to enjoying the beauty of our island in a safe and healthy way. Follow these simple but effective tips to keep your skin protected and glowing!
