Sunscreen is King

Outdoor activities are what San Diego is all about, but it's important to protect yourself while you are having fun in the sun. Quick rules: apply sunscreen 30 minutes prior to sun exposure, reapply every 2 hours, don’t miss easy to miss places like the top of your ears or scalp, and remember that sunscreen has an expiration date.

Cover Up

Invest in a large beach umbrella or tent that can provide a shady oasis for your group. Don’t forget to bring hats, quality sunglasses, and breathable cover-ups for the whole family. If you are enjoying Mission Bay, you can enjoy shade under a beach umbrella provided by the hotel.

Stay Hydrated

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and it craves H2O. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water a day to maintain moisture in your skin and keep you hydrated for those long days at the beach. To prepare ahead of your trip, order a bottled water amenity delivered to your room.

Exfoliate

The combination of heat and humidity is a recipe for interrupting an otherwise effective skincare routine. Exfoliate once a week to remove dull skin and help reduce those uncomfortable summer break outs. If your skin needs a little extra attention, make an appointment with the skincare experts at The Catamaran Spa.

If you do get sunburned, be sure you take steps to recover and heal. Take a cool bath, drink lots of water, moisturize with aloe vera, and keep out of the sun.
