Sun Safety in Tropical Florida

Sun Safety

While the rest of the nation may still be experiencing cool spring temperatures, April usually brings a temperature increase into the 80s in Southwest Florida. As spring training continues and festivals dot the Florida coastline, here are a few tips to beat the heat while still enjoying the great outdoors:

  • Limit sun exposure between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Make sure that sunglasses block both UV-A and UV-B rays.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
