It is no joke that Maldives is sunny all year round but this is when it gets a little too warm so you have to be careful not to spend too much time in the sun. Even in the shade it is almost 34 degrees Celsius too warm for clothes and too risky for prolonged exposure. Last year I had a friend from Australia come over and he was literally burnt to a crisp after spending a day on a Sandbank wearing Tanning Oil, the mother of all bad ideas. This is not the time or the place for Tanning Oils this is when you bring out Sun block, Sun Umbrellas and After Sun products. For those of you who are new to this climate please make sure to take precautionary measures because once you get burnt you will feel like hell, it will very likely ruin your dreamy vacation in the Maldives and we can’t have that.

 I spend a lot of time in the sun and so put a lot of thought into ways in which I can be comfortable with the heat and believe me when I say that natural Aloe Vera is the best Sun Block and after Sun Gel. Popular all over the world for its numerous health benefits natural Aloe Vera provides protection and care. When you feel like your skin is on fire all you have to do is just expose the jelly inside the Aloe vera leaf and apply it on the affected area and Voila! the burning will stop instantly. Same goes for itching and skin irritation. There are plenty of products out there that are made from Aloe Vera but nothing beats the actual jelly.

The next time you come to the Maldives or any other sunny destination look for Aloe Vera it is readily available and easy to use. Drink lots of water and make sure you do not spend too much time in direct sunlight. Although it’s extremely warm these days the sea is calm perfect for any activity in the water especially diving and snorkeling the visibility is just superb.
