Choose a lotion sunscreen over the spray version. I know the spray is easier, but it doesn’t cover as completely.
Stay inside, find some shade, and avoid the peak UV time of 10 AM to 2 PM if possible.
Wear a hat and sunglasses to further protect your face, scalp, and eyes.
Sun poisoning, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke are real things. This is a great resource that lists what all of the symptoms are and what to do should you or someone you know have them.
