Beat the Florida Heat When Outside Your Lady Lake Apartment

Florida is named the Sunshine State for all the right reasons! From those endless summer days to constant high temperatures and humidity, it’s not easy to avoid Florida’s intense solar rays and all the health risks that come along with them.

While relaxing at our community pool or simply taking a walk around the neighborhood, it is important to keep your skin as safe as possible. Here are some helpful tips to stay protected from the sun’s harmful rays.

When purchasing sunscreen:

  • Choose one with an SPF of at least 30 that guards against UVA and UVB rays.
  • Make sure your sunscreen is water resistant and sweat resistant, so that it gives you more time to swim and exercise outside.
  • If your sunscreen doesn’t have an expiration date, record your date of purchase on the bottle.
  • Discard all sunscreens after they expire or two years after they have been purchased.

When applying sunscreen:

  • Apply 15 minutes before leaving your Lady Lake apartment so that the lotion has a chance to absorb.
  • Reapply every two hours to ensure maximum protection.
  • Reapply after swimming and sweating, even if the sunscreen is waterproof.
  • Be aware of the wind if you are applying a spray on—you may not get complete sun protection coverage.

Also, be sure to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before going outside and bring a bottle of water with you during your adventures. Wear a hat, bring an umbrella to the beach, and remember to stay safe out there!
