Southern California is all about fun in the sun but it’s really important to make sure you are protecting your skin and eyes too. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we care about your health and well-being in every way. The sun is very bright, and it doesn’t take long to get sunburned if you’re not careful. Here are some handy tips to help you enjoy sunny weather better. You’ve heard it a thousand times, but wearing sunscreen is important. Luckily sunscreen comes in all kinds of forms, including sprays, lotion, and strengths. And they are widely available pretty much at every store. Wear a hat and sunglasses to protect yourself even more. Besides looking cool, they will help keep you cooler. Pick summer clothes that are more breathable and appropriate for the season, like cotton shorts, skirts, lightweight shirts, etc. Another easy tip is to find shade wherever you are. If you at a restaurant dining al fresco, sit at the area of the table that gets the most shade. Also, if you like taking walks, perhaps take them very early in the morning and towards sunset when it’s more comfortable outside. Make sure to always bring a bottle of water with you.
