Spring Break Safety

Spring break is one of the highlights of the year- make it fun and memorable by checking out these quick safety tips rather than relying on luck!

1. Limit your consumption of alcohol. It’s okay to enjoy a few brews with your buddies, but play it safe when it comes to the number of drinks you consume. Stay hydrated by drinking a glass of water for every beer or mixed drink, and make a plan ahead of time to ensure you have a sober driver.

2. Plan for Success. Be prepared when it comes to planning. Are vaccinations required? Do you have any dietary restrictions to consider? If you take medications, do you have enough for the trip?

3. Protect your eyes. If you wear contact lenses, make sure to bring an extra pair and pack plenty of contact solution in addition to glasses. Remove contacts before swimming and before going to bed to reduce the risk of serious eye infections.

4. Protect yourself from the sun. Basking in the sun is tempting after enduring a cold winter. Be sure to lather up in sunscreen (minimum of SPF 15) to protect your skin from premature aging, changes in skin texture, and skin cancer. Stay safe and stylin’ in wraparound sunglasses that provide UV ray protection.
