1 Apply sunscreen:
Swimming is more harmful as, water acts like a lens and lets the sunlight penetrate deeper into the skin. Apply water resistant sunscreen lotion 20-30 minutes before going to the beach and re-apply it after swimming.
2 Cocoa effect:
Use cocoa butter to prevent harmful peeling, they come in reasonable OTC (Over-the-counter) brands.
3 Use water-resistant make up products:
All make up products should be water resistant. To prevent sunburnt lips, apply a medicated lip protection guard with SPF.
4 Hair care:
For hair one must use a hair conditioner, or a hair moisturiser and detangler, so to avoid hair becoming rough and brittle. Hair is more sensitive to hard water.
5 Hats on:
Wear wide hats when on the beach. Also drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated.
