School is out and lots of families will take trips, do special activities, and spend time together this summer. Here are our top 4 tips for having fun while being safe in the Florida sun this year.  

 

  • Drink plenty of water
    • Fun in the sun is very common here in Florida, remember to bring your water bottle to the beach or other summer activities.
    • Don’t wait until you’re thirsty to rehydrate, that usually means you’re not drinking enough.
  • Stay cool
    • Seek shade and schedule your fun in the sun around the hottest parts of the day- usually between 11am and 3pm.
  • Protect your skin
    • Use a sunscreen that has at least 30 SPF and reapply throughout the day, especially if you are swimming in the pool or ocean.
    • Wear a hat, sunglasses, and protective clothing, even in the shade!
  • Remember water safety
    • Always keep a pair of eyes on your children near pools and other bodies of water
    • Sign up for a swim class! Everyone, especially in Florida, should know how to swim
    • Check beach conditions before you go! If you ever get caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore until you can reach land instead of directly back to the shore
