Is it safe to sunbathe in warm countries?
Always be careful in the sun, staying out of direct sunlight between 11AM and 3PM if possible, because this is when the sun is hottest. It is advisable to use a sun cream that protects against UVA and UVB radiation, even if you are a regular sunbather. Children, babies and the elderly are particularly vulnerable in sunlight, as are people with fair skin. It’s also important to remember that you can still burn when it is cloudy. Sun cream should be re-applied if you decide to go for a swim or get wet.
