Sun Protection Is For Every-BODY
Are you a ” Beach Bum ” or regular visitor to clothing-optional beaches? Today we’ve got you covered (So to speak). As skin cancer affects everyone everywhere, it’s our continual goal to spread Melanoma awareness, tips and advice all over the world. At times, we place a special emphasis on reaching out to those whose geographical locations or personal routines literally expose them to a higher risk of the disease. This is one of those times.
In many countries “nude beaches” aren’t anything out of the ordinary, and in fact are a fully accepted lifestyle choice. Indeed, our only concern with them is singular. It’s the simple fact that if you’re not wearing anything, then there’s nothing to block the sun’s powerful UV rays from accessing your entire body. That not only increases your risk of skin cancer in general, it also increases your risk of developing skin cancer in places you’d almost certainly rather it not ever develop.
If you’re someone who frequents these beaches, it’s of supreme importance to apply and re-apply sunscreen frequently throughout the duration of your stay on the sand. If Sundicators and sunscreen are the only thing you choose to wear, you have chosen this healthy wardrobe wisely.
We do realize that to suggest wearing clothes of any kind at a nude beach would defeat the purpose of going to one. However with that in mind, even absent clothing there are still a few other things you can do to help protect yourself against sun skin damage. First and foremost is to set up a large beach umbrella. That way at the very least you’ll have the option of immediate shade available to you at any time so you don’t burn your tender skin in sensitive areas. Also, wear UV ray-repellant sunglasses. Thirdly, if you do go swimming remember that sunlight easily penetrates the water that you’re in. So make sure to re-apply your sunscreen (even if it’s waterproof) right after you come out of the ocean; regardless of how recently you’d applied it.
Sundicators wants you to enjoy your time on the beach; we also just want to make sure that the only thing you take from the time spent there are your memories.
