Sun-kissed, Sun-soaked, Sun-burnt: Finding Summer Safety in the Southeast
So, you’re ready to barbecue but not prepared for the brutal sunshine that comes with the event.
Perfectly understandable. After all, in the Southeast, it’s not uncommon for the summer sunlight to ultimately drive families inside as they seek shade, shelter, and ultimate safety from the sun.
But if you want to stay outside, how can you optimize your ability to mitigate sun damage?
Resisting the Southeastern Sun
As it stands, the Southeastern region of the U.S. is already subject to some of the highest sunshine averages every year. For example, both Georgia and Florida receive some of the highest regional sunshine per year in hours according to Current Results:
- Florida — 2927 hours
- Georgia — 2986 hours
And the season known for the hottest and brightest days? Summer.
Particularly by the summer solstice, the sun is at its most intense for the entirety of the Southern hemisphere, thereby heating up these states that reside closer to the equator.
Thus, it’s increasingly important that residents of this region take precautions to protect themselves against the direct sunlight and oppressive heat.
Ultra-Protection for Ultraviolet Rays
Ultraviolet (UV) rays are largely what makes direct sun exposure so dangerous, the damage of which may affect each person in different ways.
“The most obvious result of too much UV exposure is sunburn, which involves skin redness and sometimes tenderness, swelling, blistering, fever, and nausea,” the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) explains. “However, tanned skin also poses a skin cancer risk.”
That’s why, here at Sunesta, our awning fabrics have received the Seal of Recommendation by the Skin Cancer Foundation!
