This is a no-brainer, always take care of your skin while adventuring on those sunny days! No matter whether you’re out on the water, or exploring the local area, it’s important to put on 30+ SPF sunblock at all times, and be sure to reapply a few times a day to ensure you’re not missing any spots. Your skin will thank you!
