GlobeQuest Travel Club, a leader in the vacation club industry, provides a few ideas for staying safe and healthy during warm vacations.
When visiting warm weather destinations can be tempting to spend long hours lounging in the sun. Although it may feel great, the end result may not. GlobeQuest Travel Club recommends that travelers ease themselves into sun exposure so as not to get burned or suffer from heat exhaustion. This luxury vacation provider is offering up some helpful tips for when travelers are vacationing and playing in the sun.
SUN SCREEN: Avoid that bright red color and painful burn by applying sunscreen regularly, especially if playing in the water. Most will still allow for a little bit of color, depending on the SPF power. Being mindful of the time spent in the sun and balancing exposure and shade is also a good idea.
HYDRATE: Too much sun exposure, or time in the heat, can deplete the body’s natural hydration. This can lead to health issues that range from simply annoying to quite serious. GlobeQuest Travel Club knows that playing in the sun can be as draining as it is fun. This luxury vacation provider encourages members to drink plenty of water, avoid excess alcohol and even cut down on salty foods, which sometimes can also dehydrate people.
EYEWEAR: Sunglasses are a must, even on overcast days. If spending time near or on the water, the glare is likely to cause some unpleasant issues such as migraines, eye pain and seeing spots. For those enjoying water sports and fishing, vacationers may want to invest in polarized lenses, which help cut down the water glare.
FOOTWEAR: Hot pavement and hot sand can really do a number on travelers’ feet. GlobeQuest Travel Clubrecommends at least having flip flops on hand but suggests wearing water sandals if playing in the water, particularly if snorkeling, to avoid scraping skin on coral.
WATER SAFETY: Sometimes the outside temperature makes swimming in lakes, rivers and oceans tempting. Unless vacationers are visiting a destination that has warm weather and warm water temps the majority of the year, those waters may still be extremely cold. Hypothermia and loss of breath can occur quickly in cold waters. Be especially mindful of young children around water.
