|Playing in the sun|
The best defence against the sun is covering up. Wear a hat with a three-inch brim or a shade facing forward, sunglasses (look for sunglasses that block ultraviolet rays), and cotton clothing with a tight weave. Stay in the shade whenever possible, and avoid sun exposure during peak intensity hours (from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.). The risk of sunburn increases at higher altitudes.
Sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 should be effective for most people. Be sure to apply enough sunscreen. Reapply sunscreen every two hours, or after swimming or sweating. Creams or baby oil may make the skin look shiny and soft, but they provide no protection from the sun.
