By Communications Department
The city of Benidorm is famous for its beauty and for its privileged, unique climate in which the sun makes it one of the best vacation destinations of the Costa Blanca.
When the good weather arrives, the only things we think about are sunbathing, forgetting about the cold, and starting to imagine what we’ll do for summer vacation. That’s why, to enjoy a full day at Aqualandia, you must prepare your skin for the sun and you can’t forget your sunscreen if you want to avoid burns and skin irritation.
The sun contributes to our keeping in good health –both physically and emotionally– as it strengthens our bones and immune system, as well as helping with circulation and the synthesis of vitamin D3. Additionally, it influences our mood as it balances the nervous system and helps to fight depression. But in summer, we have to protect ourselves from the effects that the sun can have on our skin, especially if we’re exposed for a long time.
Because we know that there is nothing like enjoying all day at Aqualandia –thanks to the wide array of available attractions– we’re going to give you some tips in this post so that you can protect your skin and take full advantage of your day at Aqualandia under the strong sun that is typical of the Mediterranean climate.
Additionally, you have to bear in mind that when the summer starts, you should be especially careful with continued exposure to solar radiation, as your skin is whiter and more sensitive at the beginning of summer after the long winter.
The sun has several effects on our body, especially for children and the elderly; therefore, we must be especially carefully with them:
- Use sunscreen that is suitable for every skin type and try to apply it as many times as necessary.
- Use certified sunglasses and a cap or hat while you’re resting on the hammocks or strolling through the park.
- Keep yourself hydrated to prevent heat stroke by drinking water and eating fresh foods which are rich in fluids.
- Avoid heavy meals that are full of foods rich in fat and calories.
- Wear light clothing and avoid dark colors.
