Preventing sunburn is essential not only for your comfort but also for your skin’s long-term health.

At Aventura Dermatology & Aesthetics, we know how important sun protection is for you and your loved ones. That’s why we offer numerous skincare products in our online store to help you enjoy the 4th of July (and beyond) safely. 

In this blog, you will learn more about how to avoid sunburns while still making the most of your summer.

1. Use a High-SPF Sunscreen

One of the most effective ways to prevent sunburn is by wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Broad-spectrum sunscreen protects your skin against both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays.

Generously apply sunscreen to all exposed skin 15 minutes before going outside. Remember to reapply every two hours. You should also reapply immediately after swimming or sweating.

2. Wear Protective Clothing

In addition to sunscreen, wearing protective clothing is a great way to reduce sun exposure. Long sleeves, wide-brimmed hats, and UV-blocking sunglasses can all help shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Consider investing in UV-protective shirts and hats, too. These functional pieces are designed to offer extra sun protection while making sure you stay cool and comfortable.

3. Seek Shade and Plan Ahead

While enjoying outdoor activities, make it a priority to take breaks in the shade. This is especially important during peak sun hours (10 AM to 4 PM).

Setting up shade structures like umbrellas or pop-up tents can provide much-needed relief from the sun’s rays. Planning your activities for early morning or late afternoon can also help minimize sun exposure.

Stock Up on Sun Protection

Using a high-SPF sunscreen, wearing protective clothing, and seeking shade can prevent 4th of July sunburns and keep your skin healthy.
