Tips to Avoid Getting Burned This Winter Break

By Karen Petcoff

As families flock to the beach during the mid-winter school break, it's important to make the most of your vacation by using a little common sense to protect you and your family.

1. Pack a hat. If you're planning to be out especially between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., peak sun hours, wearing a brimmed hat makes sense. Any adult or child who gets their hair styled in the popular corn rows or braids offered by many resorts should be particularly mindful of wearing a hat to protect their scalp from burning. Tilley Endurables ( offers one the widest selections of fashionable, popular hats for travellers.

2. Sunglasses. Whether you're on the water, the beach or the road, sun in the south can be very intense. Protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet radiation (UV) with a pair of sunglasses. From celebrity-style to aviator, designers like Lacoste make sure you look hot while getting the eye protection you need.

3. Sunscreen. Pick a sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays, both of which are harmful, with a high sun protection factor (SPF). Banana Boat Suncare has just come out with a sunscreen in a convenient spray format that offers SPF 50, meaning you can stay out in the sun up to 50 times longer without burning than if you weren't wearing protection. Check out the Banana Boat website for more suncare tips at

4. Read the fine print. Before booking your holiday, or while checking out daily excursions during your vacation, be sure to check the details involving any extra costs you might be incurring. If you have any doubts or questions, check with your tour operator's on-site representative. After all, no one likes getting burned on a family vacation.

There is some confusion about: AGING SKIN and PHOTOAGING
Natural AGING is a condition in which there is a deeping of the normal expression lines and loss of the skins elasticity and thickness of skin.
PHOTOAGING Is the term for skin changes that occur only when the skin is exposed to significant amounts of sun or other sources of ultraviolet radiation.


Type 1: Always burns, sometimes painfully; seldom or never tans; extremely sensitive to UVR.

Type 2: Usually burns, sometimes painfully; sometimes tans, but not very much, may peel, very sensitive to UVR.

Type 3: Burns moderately; tans gradually; sensitive to UVR>

Type 4: Seldom burns; tans easy and reacts with almost immediate darking of skin; (IPD immediate pigment darkening); moderarely sensitive to UVR.

Type 5: Almost never burns; tans easily and considerably; IPD reaction; minimally sensitive to UVR.

Type 6: Never burns, but tans greatly; IPD reaction; not sensitive to UVR.

Try to remember back in time when you were out in the sun for 45-minutes at high noon on a hot summer day, without any sunscreen on. Do not go out and do this just think back.

Did you burn or start a slow tan? The differences between the burned skin and the the slight tan may only be about as much as if you were wearing a SUN Protection Factor (SPF) sunscreen of 2 or 3.

If you have developed a gradual deep tan, that offers you at most the equivalent of an SPF of 4.

That's not much considering that the SKIN CANCER FOUNDATION recommonds that everyone use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
If you are going to get a tan get a slow one. Go to there website for more sunburn skin care tips.
