There’s no doubt about it, the sun is getting stronger! Even ten minutes of exposure can result in a sunburn if you don’t take proper precautions and, unlike what some believe, you can burn early in the morning too.

Reducing exposure to the sun is easier said than done especially if you love being outdoors in warm weather. If you must be out in it at peak hours, there are some steps you can take to protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun including using sunscreen, wearing a hat, sitting in the shade, using an umbrella, and wearing a summer cover-up.

Cover-ups come in every color, size, design, and style imaginable and they can be found in most department stores and clothing stores. Not only will you look stylish on the beach, but you’ll also be protecting yourself from the dangers of the sun.
