Surf lifesaver Stacey shares tips for sun safety at the beach.
As a surf lifesaver we do spend up to eight hours a day on the beach. So we want to make sure we are wearing a hat, sunscreen, zinc, and we do wear our long sleeved patrol shirt as well.
The worst thing that we have probably seen down on the beach is people using sun tanning oil. It basically burns the skin and at the end of the day they are bright red, which is probably the worst thing that can happen to your skin.
The best trend I’ve seen lately is the umbrella hat, which is a wide brim small umbrella that sits on your head. This is perfect for sun protection and keeping your face out of the sun.
When young people go to the beach, the best way they can protect themselves is wearing sunscreen and zinc, a hat, seeking shade when they can and making sure they’ve got protective clothing in the water and on the beach.
