WATER AND SUN

The best way to stay safe in the sun is to avoid it between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM! Since that is when most of you want to be in the sun, thankfully I am not one of you, there are a few important things to remember:

  • #1 - always use sunscreen. Your sunscreen should be SPF 15 or higher and it should be reapplied every few hours.
  • #2 - use an SPF lip balm. Remember lips get sunburn too!
  • #3 - DRINK LOTS OF WATER!
There are many more precautions but since this is a kitchen medicine blog I wanted to stick mostly with the water issue. It is so easy to become dehydrated when exposed to the sun in the heat of the day or for long periods of time. Be cautious and keep lots of water with you and drink it!
