Sand in­ten­si­fies the sun’s rays by be­tween 10 and 25 per cent, so you need to be vig­i­lant about ap­ply­ing sunscreen to ar­eas that are not cov­ered by UV-pro­tec­tive cloth­ing. A thick and creamy wa­ter­proof sunscreen will give you the best cov­er­age, so start the day with a thor­ough slather­ing of it. But once you’re at the beach, try­ing to rub sunscreen into slightly sandy arms may re­sult in a re­bel­lion. A spray-on lo­tion can be a good back-up op­tion – just make sure that you are us­ing enough as they tend to coat the skin rather sparsely.

Neu­tro­gena Wet Skin Sunscreen Spray, 140g, $14.95
