In the Northern hemisphere, summer is quickly approaching. The beautiful summer weather makes it more fun to spend time outside, so lots of people take part in fun activities, like swimming, surfing, boating, water skiing, wakeboarding and other outdoor sports.
If you’re planning to spend time outside this summer, or at any time, you should make sure to protect yourself from the sun. Read on to learn more about sun protection.

Dialog

1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

We can’t see the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, but they can be very damaging to our skin. Overexposure to UV can damage the skin irreparably. The first sign of overexposure to the sun is sunburn, but over the long term, the sun can cause the skin to wrinkle and increase the chances of skin cancer.
The skin does have some mechanisms to protect itself from the skin, but unfortunately, they can’t handle too much sun. In order to help your skin protect yourself from the sun, you should do two very important things:
1. Stay out of the sun between 11am and 3pm, when the sun’s ray are most intense.
2. Wear protective clothing, such as hats and shirts, and if your skin is exposed, wear sunscreen.

Discussion

In order to find a good sunscreen, you should look for one that will last. It should be photostable, meaning that it won’t break down in the sun, and it should have and SPF of 15 or higher. Also, water resistant suncreens are good if you plan to be in the water or doing any activities that make you sweat.
Taking care of yourself when you’re in the sun will make you much happier when you get older.
Good luck.
Stay cool,
John
