Believe it or not, its true. That why it’s vital that you protect your skin at all cost.

1. Apply Suncreen

2. Cover Outfits

Apart from sunscreen, covering up your body with hats and clothing are also good forms of sun protection. Make sure to wear a wide-brimmed hat or bucket hat or a face cap so that it can cover up the top of your head, neck, face and ears.

3. Usage of Aloe Vera gel

Aloe vera gel has healing powers and can help to soothe the irritation from sunburns. If you are unable to extract the gel from the plant itself, you can make use of skin moisturiser with aloe vera in it.

4. Look for shade
