For all World Cup enthusiasts who are going to watch the upcoming matches and those who will be imitating our beloved cricketers on the streets, they must follow few tips to save their skin from the scorching sun!
- Wear a sun block with high SPF before stepping out of the house. Sunscreens should be used well before 15 minutes before stepping out into the sun.
- Wear sun glasses to cover your eyes from the sun. Sun masks for eyes, or shades must be used to cover your eyes from the scorching heat of the sun. At times because of heat, your vision gets blurred and visibility gets affected. Protect your delicate eyes from sunrays.
- Wear scarf or hats to protect your hair from sun as it can cause some serious hair damages. Head scarves and hats or caps should be worn if you are under the direct sun. This will protect your hair from harmful UV rays of sun and lessen hairfall. This will also reduce your risk of getting headaches.
- Keep yourself well hydrated when you’re outside. Drinking gallons of water or liquid intake is a must when you are outside your home. Sun heat dehydrates your body, therefore, keeping yourself hydrated is necessary to enjoy the cricket fun!
- Reapply the sunscreens within few hours. Even if you are outside, you must not forget to reapply sun blocks after a few hours. This keeps your skin protected from getting tanned or damaged.
