I Am Going On Holiday Soon, What Should I Take?

Everyone needs a holiday and, indeed they are times that should be fun, but the weeks you plan to spend on holiday do need careful planning, especially if you have keratosis. For instance, if you are planning to spend your holiday at a resort famous for its beaches, how do you handle it? Or, for that matter, if you plan to spend your holiday on a motor cruise, what should you do?

For starters, you must remember that you have keratosis and if you are under treatment  for it, you must take that into account. It doesn’t mean you have to become a hermit at high noon because of a tropical sun on the beach, but it does mean that you have to take some precautions so that you can be sociable, enjoy the resort and yourself.

For starters, why not take a cabana, if one is available and use that when the sun is high? You can not only stay out of the sun, but you can have your food and drink served sans sand flies and other assorted things. It’s a rather luxurious way to handle this, but, remember, keratosis a skin disorder that has been caused by your time in the sun and your treatments to rid yourself of the results will only be turned on their collective head if you decide that it is all right to spend the day in the sun. A cabana is a perfect  solution. You can run to the water, have a dip and then get back out and out of the sun. You do have to remember, though, that before your dip you’ll have to put on some waterproof sunscreen to prevent the UVA and UVB from undoing all of the work you have put in.

If you are on a tighter budget, of course, then you may have to opt for a beach chair and a large umbrella, but the key here is to stay out of the sun and if the sun does manage to peak around the umbrella, then you’ll have to find a way to cover up. A nice beach robe would be a good idea. Made of a light material, it should have long sleeves and it should be airy and comfortable yet also should block the sun. Don’t forget a broad-brimmed hat to ensure that any work you have done to your face isn’t undone by your fun in the sun.

The same goes for a motor cruise. You must plan your day around the sunlight and maximum exposure and limit the amount. Since a  motor cruise does differ from a beach holiday in that you can have an indoor swimming pool if you opt for one of the modern cruise liners, then you are ahead of the game. Indeed, if you don’t plan on swimming or you are satisfied with remaining either in your air-conditioned shipboard room or one of the many function and dining rooms, then your trouble will be nil as you will not be out in the sunlight and you can let the healing process you started complete itself.
