A large number of people would like to spend the vacation at the seaside, however, it’s easily get burnt by UV light because there are no such shelters like buildings or trees along the coast. Meanwhile, the water content of the stratum corneum of skin will increase after soaking in the water which means we will more possible be burnt by ultraviolet.
But sunscreen may not be a good choice in this situation. First, we need to reapply it every two hours to ensure it’s the effect; and second, the chemical used in sunscreen is found threatening the corals and other marine life according to the research by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration U.S. Department of Commerce.
