Thai Sun Protection Tips
When we say holidays we always imagine shinning sun and sandy beaches and always think that sun is good. However sometimes we have to understand that the sun, especially in tropics, may be a dangerous thing and lying under the sun without any restrictions is not good for health.
The main mistake that tourists in Thailand usually make is that they go under the sun without protection which is absolutely necessary in such cases.
So what preventive steps should be taken to avoid all these problems? Now we are going to give you some tips. Above all, remember that you can get sunburn not only on the beach, but just by taking a walk down the street or, for example, on the way to the beach.
The morning sun is insidious, usually it seems to be very affectionate, even tender – but its rays may be very dangerous. Hence, the main rule if you are sensitive to the sun you should have a broad-brimmed hat or at least Panama, wearing a short-sleeved shirt is even mandatory. So this way the most part of the body from the sun is already protected.
How to protect hands and legs? Use sunscreen and sun gels. Zones like shoulders and legs are especially sensitive to sunburn so take that into account. For tourists it is not recommended to leave the hotel room without adequate sun protection. In your luggage you should have a complete set of creams with a degree of protection in the 40-45 degrees.
As for the beaches … Umbrella does not protect from burns. Creating a sense of security, an umbrella only partially insulates us from direct sunlight and do not protect from the rays reflected from sand particles. Shadow on the beach is deceptive and sitting in a lounge chair, will not protect your skin.
However, in the tourist areas there are a lot of pharmacies for foreigners, alongside with pharmacies it should be noted that Thai traditional medicine is also capable of miracles and treatments from sunburn like all kinds of ointments and liquids are sold quite a lot, they are very effective. However if you got a really bad sunburn you should turn to a doctor.
