Stay safe in the sun

Stay safe in the sun

The sun is a wonderful thing. It provides us with vitamin D, helps us to grow food, and makes us feel happy. However, too much sun exposure can be harmful to our health. It can cause skin cancer, premature aging, and heatstroke.

Despite the fact that sometimes the Irish weather might seem more liquid when it comes to sunshine, in fact, we have one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. That's why it's important to take steps to protect yourself from the sun's harmful rays, even when you're in your own garden.

Here are some tips for sun protection in the garden for adults in Ireland:

  • Wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Reapply every two hours, or more often if you're sweating or swimming.
  • Wear a hat and sunglasses. A wide-brimmed hat will protect your face, neck, and ears from the sun. Sunglasses will protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
  • Seek shade during the hottest part of the day. This is usually between 11am and 3pm.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water to stay cool and hydrated.
  • Avoid tanning beds. Tanning beds emit harmful UV rays that can cause skin cancer.

If you're looking for a more permanent solution for sun protection in your garden, you may want to consider a Patio Pro Pergola  can provide excellent protection from the sun's rays. They can also help to keep you cool and comfortable on hot days. Additionally, they can add a touch of style and elegance to your garden.
