Summer is synonymous with beaches full of bathers eager to enjoy their well-deserved vacations. However, going to the beach also means spending hours under a scorching sun that worsens in periods of heat waves like those experienced in recent days. Sun protection becomes an indispensable ally during long days on the beach to protect our skin from the sun’s rays. However, there is a protagonist that we often overlook: our feet and even more so if we wear flip flops, so if you want to avoid burns in this area of the body, follow the advice that we will tell you below. Put the flip flops on the beach like this and you will avoid risks to your health.
Avoid burns by putting flip flops like this
When we go to the beach, it is vital to take precautions to ensure that our feet are not damaged by walking on the scorching sand. If you are a fan of flip flops, you should know the proper way to wear them to avoid burns and related health problems.
First of all, it is essential that you choose the right flip-flops and then, that you use them correctly to protect your feet from the scorching heat of the sand.
High temperatures can make the day uncomfortable, especially if you don’t protect your skin with sunscreen. However, not only the skin is at risk; Improper use of flip flops can also cause problems when your feet come into contact with the hot surface.
To counteract this problem, get into the habit of turning your flip-flops inside out when wearing them at the beach. This simple action will prevent the sun’s rays from falling directly into the flip-flop and, when you put them back on, it will ensure that they are not burning, providing greater comfort to your feet.
On days of high temperatures, flip-flops run the risk of deforming or even burning, depending on the material with which they are made. It is important to remember that this type of shoe, if not used carefully, can increase the likelihood of slipping and unbalancing, increasing the risk of injury, sprain or strain.
Essential elements for a beach day
Along with the advice to put your flip flops inside out in the sand, while you enjoy the beach, it is also important to prepare a list with essential items that can also be the key to not forgetting any detail.
Selecting an appropriate sunscreen cream is an essential first step. It is important to choose a protection factor according to your skin type and needs, factor 50 being the ideal option. Remember to apply it 30 minutes before exposing yourself to the sun, repeat the application every two hours and after each bath. The choice of clothing is also relevant for a visit to the beach. Opting for light colors and light clothing can help keep us cool, while a suitable swimsuit or bikini completes the beach outfit. Do not forget to include a towel, mat or lounger for greater comfort. Entertainment also has its place on the beach. Mats, surfboards and balls add a playful touch to your day. If you have children, you cannot miss the traditional buckets and shovels to build castles and enjoy playing in the sand.
In short, enjoying the beach requires caution and planning. Following these tips for proper use of flip flops and keeping a list of must-haves will ensure that your day at the shore is memorable for all the right reasons, without burnout or unnecessary worry.
