Keeping Sun Safe: How To Do It

*Collaborative post.

The summer is ahead and everyone is hoping to be able to get out into the sunshine for the first time in a year. It’s not that we’ve been locked IN, but being locked DOWN has made it much harder to plan to go away on a fun vacation. The thing about the beach is that while it’s the most beautiful place that you can go to, it’s also the place that can be dangerous for your skin. Getting outdoors for sunshine isn’t always easy, but it’s much safer to do it when you know how to look after your skin properly.

The sun is great for your health, but in excess, it can be dangerous. The body needs the sun to produce vitamin D and getting outdoors to find things to do in the longer, brighter summer days can help you to feel calm, relaxed and make you feel as if you’re glowing! The only thing that you need to do is be very aware of sun safety and how you can protect yourself in the harsher UV lighting out there in the sunshine. With this in mind, we’ve got some of the best ways that you can protect yourself and stay safe in the sunshine.

  • Apply sunscreen. You need to prevent your skin from burning in the sunshine and that means that you need a good quality sunshine. Think about the products with the highest star ratings, has an SPF of 30 and is water resistant. You may not be out there swimming, but your body is bound to sweat a little and you need to ensure that you don’t’ run off the sunscreen every single time you sweat. You should also ensure that it’s not out of date! Around half an hour before you go out, add in some sunscreen to all exposed areas including the face!
  • Wear protective clothes. You don’t want to go out into the hot sun and wear a ton of layers, but you do need to get comfortable with breathable fabrics that can cover exposed skin. Wear a hat – no hat, no play! – and make sure that you have a light cover up over your arms and legs to stop too much UV radiation going through to your skin. You can check how much sunlight gets through your clothes by holding them up to the sunshine. A hat protects your head and you need sunglasses for your eyes, too.
  • Keep an eye on the UV index. You want to ensure that you’re not going outside in the strongest UV without protection. So, make checking the UV reports as regular as checking the weather each day. You can find out the UV index where you are when you are on the Met Office website!
  • Stick to the shade. Where you can during the strongest rays of the day, stick to the shade and be inside. This is usually between 11am and 3pm. Avoid being out in the direct sunlight in these times, and you can ensure that your skin will be happier!

Head to the beach

Exploring the outdoors with your date is a great way to relax and unwind. A visit to the beach for a picnic is always a lovely idea. There is plenty of room to space out safely and the scenery will definitely put you in the right mood. Also, the distractions are minimal on a beach, so you can really spend time talking while strolling with your date, and really get to know them. There are a couple of beaches to pick in Los Angeles so you have loads of options for your date.

Go see a drive-in movie

Another great date idea is a drive-in movie. With all that we have going on, indoor experiences may not be everyone’s cup of tea but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the activities you love. The pandemic has made many activities difficult to enjoy and this has affected our dating lives to an extent. Many people don’t even go on dates anymore because they can’t think of where to go safely or they don’t have a date. It is quite tricky to meet someone new while social distancing, which is why dating sites are so handy now since they help you meet prospective dates online. A great dating site in Los Angeles is San Diego Personals. It is worth browsing the dating site if you are in that area and you are interested in meeting new people.

If you love watching movies, this date option will be right up your alley. Drive-in movies are so popular at the moment with the ongoing pandemic. If you want to see the big screen with your date, head over to a drive-in cinema. If you are in Los Angeles, you could visit Electric Dusk, Hollywood Mel’s Drive-In, and many more.

Explore a garden

Exploring a botanical garden is a great idea for dating in San Diego. Some great gardens to visit are The Huntington, Expo Park’s Rose Gardens, Poppy Reserve, and more. All you have to do is follow the guidelines and get lost in the garden with your date.

Go hiking

If you really want to explore the outdoors and you trust your date, you could go hiking. You could head off to Malibu for a day hike at Parker Mesa. You could also go off to Runyon Canyon.

Go for a cruise in a rented convertible car

The cost of renting cars is a lot cheaper now, which makes it a good idea if you like exploring cars. Renting a cool convertible car and going for a drive is a great way to bond with your date. You can drive all over the city in a luxurious car and enjoy the amazing warm weather.

Charity of the Month – The Salvation Army

The charity of the month for October 2020 is The Salvation Army. I have heard a lot about this charity for many years now and I am glad to be in the position where I can spread the word about what the charity does. The Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian church and an international charitable organisation founded in 1865 in East London, England. Their mission is based on everyone experiencing life in all its fullness. The charity is based in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

The Salvation Army

We put our faith into action by offering practical help for people without discrimination, standing up for those who are vulnerable, fighting against injustice, and encouraging people to deepen their relationship with God. The services we offer are diverse and responsive to the realities of life in the communities we serve.

Charity of the Month – The Salvation Army

There are over 700 Salvation Army churches and 1,000 full-time ministers all over the UK and ROI. They offer practical help to vulnerable people who need support and advice. One of the ways they support people is by helping find and stay in work. The Salvation Army’s Employment Plus service offers tailored support to help people become job-ready. Unemployment is on the rise in many parts of the country, so having a charity work on getting people employed is amazing.

Salvation Army helps the homeless in the communities by providing them with temporary accommodations, which is huge. Homelessness is a big issue in many parts of the UK. It breaks my heart every time I come across someone sleeping rough. It is great to see a charity making it their mission to break the cycle of homelessness.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead!
