It doesn’t matter if you are away in a hot Country on holiday or just relaxing in a beautiful area of England, the sun can cause serious damage.  There are several easy ways to prevent any harmful sun rays getting to your sensitive eyes or fragile skin.  To protect your eyes, you can wear a good quality pair of sunglasses, preferably the wrap around style that will stop any chance of the harmful bright rays getting through.  NEVER look directly at the sun, even if you are wearing protective glasses, the strong glare can harm your vision or even cause blindness!

Cover yourself generously, before you go out, in a high factor sun cream and reapply it every couple of hours. Make sure you ALWAYS wear a hat, preferably with a wide brim and a neck protector flap at the back and keep a thin layer of clothes on over your swim suit.  If you can find a natural shady spot to sit then do so, if not use a sun parasol or tent to protect you from the direct heat and brightness of the sun.

Apart from wearing protection on the outside of our bodies, think about your insides as well!  Drinking plenty of water or any fluids is essential and eating healthy snacks like fruit will stop you dehydrating.  At the end of the day use a good quality after sun or skin moisturiser to stop your skin becoming overly dry and wrinkly.  Of course, we also need to think about when we are at our work places and in our homes, the harmful U.V. rays from the sun can penetrate through glass and cause damage to us even there!  We can all take precautions to prevent this type of problem by fitting special blinds or shutters onto our windows or perhaps more unique products such as Brise Soleil Solar Shading which stops the harmful rays of the sun before they come into contact with our buildings.  If you think this type of product could be the answer to your problems with the Sun’s glare then check out websites such as .  ALWAYS take precautions when out and about in the hot sunny weather and even if it’s cloudy, don’t be deceived, the Sun’s harmful rays can still cause major damage to any of us.  PROTECTION is better than cure and none of us EVER wants to find out we have skin Cancer, lose our eyesight, have skin that’s badly burnt or goes very dry and wrinkly from exposure to the sun.
