Summer Essentials: Sunscreen

When visiting Amelia Island, don't forget the essentials!

As summer approaches and more people plan vacations to destinations like Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach, it is important to remember the vital role that sunscreen plays. Regardless of your activities - whether you are sunbathing, cycling or just strolling around town - sunscreen should be an indispensable part of your daily routine. When you're visiting Amelia Island and staying at a vacation rental, don't forget to protect your skin and eyes from the Florida sun.

The foremost benefit of sunscreen is its ability to shield your skin from harmful UV rays. These rays can cause various issues, from a simple sunburn to skin cancer after years of repeated abuse. Regular use of sunscreen can minimize the risk of these harmful effects and maintain healthy skin.

In addition to protection from UV rays, sunscreen can help prevent premature aging. Overexposure to UV rays can lead to early onset of wrinkles, fine lines, and other aging signs. Consistent use of sunscreen can keep your skin looking youthful and healthy. We all want to look our youngest and best - right?

Choosing the right sunscreen is critical. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen that offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays. It is also important to select a sunscreen with a high SPF, which can further safeguard your skin.

There are many options to consider: natural mineral sunscreen, advanced sunscreen sprays and/or wearing clothing to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
