Chemical and physical protection against the sun

physical-protection-against-the-sunThe incidence of solar radiation and UVA and UVB harmful rays that reach the Earth is growing. With knowledge of how to protect ourselves we can reduce the risk of skin cancer, which is becoming more common.

Whether you are outdoors for leisure purposes in the natural environment as we move through the city outside, must be interested to know how to protect from the sun, which is good in low doses, but quite harmful in high doses, and certain times of day.


Eat properly before and during physical exertion

eat-properlyAs we know, water is essential for life more than food, and will always be something that we have to take any outdoor activity of some physical intensity or duration. Water is not only necessary for drinking, but can also be useful (for example) to clean a wound by applying first aid. Therefore always be taken into account, and know for sure where in the road is water (whether natural or artificial sources), and in any case bring water reserve in case, if only to have along the route to any incident.

The food is less necessary, especially during take less than a day (especially if we ate well before you leave). But it all depends, of course, our level of training and practice, because maybe there can be a person who has no problem with not eating for 5 hours, others at the slightest physical effort they whet the appetite.
