Protect Yourself from the Texas Sun

Circle W RV Ranch is near Rockport Beach Park. And because it is such a warm summer, many people spend time at the fabulous beach. Keep these sunscreen tips in mind while by the water. The Texas sun can be brutal.

Sun Protection

  • The Texas sun shines bright and even through clouds, it can burn and damage skin in just a matter of minutes.
  • Consider sunglasses labeled as blocking 99% or 100% of UVA and UVB, or as providing UV absorption up to 400 nm.
  • Get rid of sunscreen past its expiration date or is more than two years old.
  • For infants look for the ingredients zinc and / or titanium dioxide in sunscreen.
  • To protect your head, use a combination of sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Don’t forget the ears, back of the neck, lips and the scalp at the part in the hair.
  • Whatever type of sunscreen you prefer (gel and cream are the best choices), be sure to reapply every two to three hours during times of prolonged exposure.
  • Wear tightly woven darker clothing in the sun because it reflects more UV rays and look for fabrics made of nylon or Dacron that are more protective than cotton.
  • Water, sand and even porch decks can reflect and intensify the damaging rays of the sun so keep reflective areas in mind.
  • The sun is strongest between 10 am and 4 pm so if your shadow appears to be shorter than you are, seek shade.
  • People with naturally darker skin aren’t immune to the effects of the sun and can still burn.
