Do not go out in the sun between 12 and 15, you can get severe burns, the sun is the hottest during this period. You should choose the right time for sun exposure. A good time to spend in the sun is 1-2 hours a day.
Be sure to take a hat to the beach, the ideal option is a Panama hat, as it protects your eyes in addition to your head. The sun adversely affects the retina of the eye. Also, do not read while in the sun, it also spoils your eyesight.
Don't drink cold drinks. Many people like to drink cold beer on the beach, thus they are making a big mistake. Beer removes water from the body and you want to drink much more. Green tea is ideal for drinking. Doctors recommend drinking every half hour.
The position of the body while sunbathing in the sun is also important for the body. It is best to sunbathe while standing or sitting. If you do decide to sunbathe lying down, then your head should be raised.
Two days before the opening of the beach season, it is advisable to do a full body exfoliation. You need to get rid of old skin as much as possible. But don't go out in the sun immediately after exfoliation.
Avoid using lotion, deodorant, or soap before going out in the sun. These products degrease the skin, which can cause burns.

Pay special attention to moles on the body, as these places are very vulnerable to the development of cancer. It is recommended to seal large moles before going out into the sun.
