5 Tips for Staying Sunburn Free This Holiday Season

The holiday is here, and that means one thing: it’s time to get sunburned.

This might sound counter-intuitive—why would you want to get sunburned during the holidays? But the truth is that we all need to be more careful about how much time we spend in the sun this season. 


We don’t want anyone’s holiday to be ruined by sunburns or other skin damage. So we’ve put together five tips for staying safe and sunburn-free this holiday season:

Make sure you’re using sunscreen.

It’s important to use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 or higher, especially if you’re going to be outside all day. Even if you’re not going anywhere special, make sure to put on sunscreen every morning before you leave the house. Even if it’s cloudy outside and it seems like it won’t be sunny, UV rays can still get through clouds—and even if it’s cold out, you’ll still be exposed to sunlight when walking between places or driving in your car!


Wear protective clothing.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to staying protected from the sun is wearing short sleeves or shorts when they go outside. While this may seem like a good idea because it looks good on Instagram, it actually increases your risk of getting sunburn by up to 40%. So wear long sleeves and pants instead!

Drink plenty of water every day—and before bedtime too.

This will help keep you hydrated while keeping your body healthy overall so that it’s better able to fight off infections caused by viruses such as colds or flu viruses (which both tend to come on during winter months when temperatures drop).


Wear a hat and sunglasses.

This one might not seem like a big deal either—but just think about how much more fun you would have if you didn’t have to worry about getting burned or squinting all day long because of the sun shining in your eyes. Plus, wearing sunglasses will help protect your eyes from UV damage as well as any other damage that might occur during this festive time of year (like hangovers).


Take breaks from being outside. 

Take a break every hour or so by going inside for shade or air conditioning until you feel better again before returning outside again. This will allow your body time to cool down before heading back out into the heat again where more damage can occur!

In the end, the only way to beat this unpredictability and ensure that you’ll have a sunburn-free Holiday Season is to apply sunscreen early and often. Be prepared and follow these five tips to stay protected all season long.
