Sunburn

After all that good food and wine, DON'T Fall Asleep In The Sun, no matter how tempting the warm sunshine, cool breezes and gentle lapping of the waves on the shore.

DO apply sunblock to raised areas like tops of feet, thighs, boobs, lips, nose, forehead, backs of calves, arms, bottom and shoulders. If you see some poor soul asleep and fast lobstering in the sun, do them a favour and gently awaken and warn them.

Be careful to re-apply sun lotion after prolonged periods in the water, there is no 100% waterproof sun cream! A t-shirt is the equivalent of  sun-factor 25. This means you can stay in the sun 25 times longer with    a t-shirt on than without (you will still get burnt after a while!)

Useful advice on tanning and sun care products, from Coppertone

If you've read this bit too late (for this holiday), you'll find vinegar, the colder the better, applied over the sore areas will soothe and prevent peeling. Never scrub a burned skin.

Heat Rash

Most commonly caused by too many layers of tanning product. The pores get clogged, can't breathe, and set up an irritation.

Gippy Tummy, Sore Throat & Dizziness

Downing iced drinks in the blazing sun causes severe temperature clashes in your system, resulting in the above symptoms. As these are seldom felt till many hours later, possibly after a meal, it is easy to wrongly blame the food! Remember, a body temperature drink in the sun; an iced drink once you've cooled down in the shade.

Although the local water is generally safe to drink, its best to buy bottled water, cheapest in the giant sizes. It's comforting to know that All Food Establishments And Public Swimming Pools are subject to spot checks & analysis by vigilant health inspectors, who have the right to shut down those infringing the stringent regulations.
