Author: Time: 05/21/2018 Read: 120

      There is ultraviolet (UV) radiation in sunlight, which could hurt you and cause skin disease. If you are exposed to sunlight, it is likely to get skin cancer. What you have to do is that try your best to protect yourself and avoid strong sunlight, actually the ultraviolet radiation.
      The sunlight before 10a.m. and after 5p.m is beneficial to you because it can disinfect. But at other hours you have better avoid it as much as possible. Especially when you do outdoor sports, please pay more attention to your sun-resistant measures.
      First, umbrella is a good thing. Whatever it is rainy or sunny, it is helpful for you. Yes, not only can it block rain but also sunlight. We suggest you buy the deep color umbrella which has higher anti-UV radiation efficiency. Only 5% of UV radiation can pass the black umbrella, 5% to 10% in deep red green and purple umbrellas, while 15% to 20% in light color umbrellas.
      Second, use sunscreen. It is a kind of makeup that contains some material anti-UV radiation. Many sunscreens don’t block UVA radiation, which doesn’t primarily cause sunburn but can increase the rate of melanoma and photodermatitis. The use of broad-spectrum(UVA/UVB) sunscreens can address this concern. Use it 20 to 30 minutes before going outside. In addition, make sure it is water-resistant because no one can decide whether it rains or not.
      Third, long sleeve clothes but not thick and sheathy clothes or wear hat. If possible, wear your sunglasses to protect your eyes that are stimulated by strong sunlight.
      Fourth, seek shade like trees when possible, especially during the hours of 10a.m. to 5p.m. when the sun’s rays are strongest.
      Last but not least, drink more water to supply the water of your body structure, also avoid sunstroke.
