Protecting your skin during extended exposure to the sun’s rays is absolutely necessary, especially in states like Florida, where the sun shines strong all year long. While a little sun can be good for you, prolonged exposure to the ultraviolet radiation the sun emits can permanently damage your skin, causing excessive wrinkles and blemishes, and increasing your chances of developing other serious skin conditions. For this reason, you need to know how to protect yourself from the sun whenever possible.
Here are a few suggestions to help you protect yourself from the sun’s UV radiation at our apartments for rent in Alachua:
- Sit under an umbrella or use natural shade when you’re outdoors.
- Wear a hat if you plan to spend long periods of time outside, as this will both shield your face and help to keep you cool.
- If you plan to be outside for a long period of time, apply sun block to the exposed areas of your skin. It is generally advisable to use an SPF rating of 30 or greater for the best protection.
- Avoid spending a lot of time outside during peak summer exposure hours, from about 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
By taking advantage of these tips, you will hopefully be able to fully enjoy sunny Florida without putting yourself at risk. To find out more about the amenities at One 51 Place Apartment Homes, including our pool facilities, contact our leasing office today.
