As a Sands of Kahana timeshare owner, you know the temperate summer climate can deceive you into thinking that you can’t get burned. With that in mind, we thought now would be a good time to review some common sense tanning tips if you’re presently here or soon will be and planning to enjoy the pool or beach. Take the following precautionary measures to ensure you don’t get toasted!

Use sunscreen

The most obvious. Apply a sunscreen with enough SPF to keep you from burning but not so much as to prevent you from tanning.

Know when – and when not – to tan. 

Avoid outdoor tanning between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun is at its hottest.

Know your limits

To avoid the risk of skin cancer caused by overexposure to the sun, it is best to limit your tanning time to two hours. It can be helpful to use a timer when you’re tanning outside in the event you fall asleep.

Protect your eyes

Always wear sunglasses with UV protection to prevent the sun’s damaging rays from burning holes in your corneas.

The best way to cook

When you think about it, sunbathing humans aren’t too terribly different than a pig on a spit. For best results, the slow rotation method is advisable for even tanning.

Enjoy your summer!
