Spring Break Tip: Don’t Forget the Sunscreen!
Spring Break means a break from a lot of things… boring classes, looming deadlines, difficult assignments, double-shifts at work, nagging bosses, cold weather and a bunch of other equally dull stuff. But it’s not a break from common sense – or at least it shouldn’t be.
The most popular Spring Break destinations are almost exclusively all on beaches, in warmer climates… Like Panama City Beach Fl, Daytona Beach, Miami, South Padre, Acapulco etc.
Apart from bikinis, 6 packs and palm trees, what do these places all have in common? You guessed it… sunshine – and LOTS of it.

Sorry to get all serious on you for a second, but it’s a simple fact. Applying sunscreen throughout the day prevents your skin from prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays, which can cause skin cancer. It’s so simple to avoid any problems though… Just don’t forget the sunscreen!
And finally, just in case those reasons weren’t enough to convince you – here’s something to think about:
