A wide-brim hat offers excellent sun protection for the eyes, ears, face, and neck. Sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection significantly reduce eye damage from sun exposure. Directly after outdoor activities or swimming, a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ should be applied generously and reapplied frequently. Stay alert! Reflective properties of sand and water amplify the Sun's UV radiation.
