Best sunscreen for water sports
Whether you're an avid surfer, a passionate swimmer, or a dedicated paddleboarder, nothing beats the feeling of the sun on your skin while engaging in your favourite water activities.
But before you dive into the waves, it's essential to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
The sun's reflection on the water can significantly impact your skin during water sports.
- When sunlight hits the water's surface, it reflects and intensifies the UV radiation.
- This phenomenon, known as "solar or sun reflection," increases your exposure to UV rays and raises the risk of sunburn and other sun-related skin damage.
To protect your skin during water sports, it is essential to:
- Cover up with UPF 50+ clothing where you can, wear a hat and slide on the sunglasses
- Use a high-quality water-resistant sunscreen - KINeSYS is 80min water resistant
- Apply sunscreen generously and evenly to all exposed skin 15min before heading out into the water.
- Reapply sunscreen regularly, especially after swimming or excessive sweating, to maintain optimal protection.
