While sunburn does not always cause cancer, the damage makes you more susceptible to developing it. Light-skinned people are very susceptible and chances are, if you’re light-skinned, you’ve had a sunburn at some point in your life. Don’t worry too much: the best you can do now is prevent a future sunburn. Melanoma can spread across the surface of the skin, and this is more easily treated. However, tumours can also penetrate the layers of the skin and this gets into the blood and spreads the cancer. Not only does it potentially cause skin cancer, but prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays really dries the skin out and causes an orangey, leathery texture over time. And that it just not attractive on anyone.
So. Are you scared? Good. The sun is deadly, friend! But that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors all summer. With a good sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, you will be able to protect your skin pretty sufficiently. But before sunscreen lotions, there were…that’s right…actual sun screens. Sunscreen lotion tends to come out of the skin with perspiration and its strength wears off over time. The best way to prevent sunburn (and sun-induced aging) is with physical barriers, such as the Outsunny Triangle Patio Sun Shade!
This sun shade is triangular, and each side measures sixteen and a half feet across, making it larger than the average bedroom. It will sufficiently cover your patio area and enable you to enjoy the sunny afternoons without fear of skin cancer or skin damage. It’s not just skin cancer we’re worried about: overexposure to sunlight can also cause dehydration, overheating, and nausea. Children and pets are especially susceptible, as they don’t always recognize the symptoms and think they’re invincible. Your job as a good parent is to protect your chilluns, and a sun shade will make a huge difference. Not only does the sun shade block sunlight, but it throws a wide area of shade, within which you will find a slightly cooler temperature.
It has a very cool triangular shape, making it more fun than the usual square canopy you see. It sells for around $30, making it a great choice economically. It comes with rope, and there are D-rings at all three corners, making it very easy to attach the canopy to deck posts, trees, or your home. You can also separately order the Outsunny installation pole. Since there are only grommets in the three corners, it limits the setup options, particularly if you want to set it up in a smaller area. This is easily rectified by picking up a grommet set at your local hardware store. Its sandy colour efficiently blocks out sunlight while maintaining a nice level of daylight. You can see light through it, but cannot see through it.
Some canopies are dark colours and can attract sun, making it hot, while also being slightly oppressive as it hangs above your head. The Outsunny canopy is an efficient heat and sunblock, protecting you from harmful ultraviolet rays. In fact, it is guaranteed to block at least 95% of the rays. It is constructed of high-quality, high-density woven polyethylene fabric cloth. This means the area beneath the canopy is 6.5 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. The fabric is colourfast, meaning the sun will not be able to fade its colour. In addition, it will not rot, or grow mildew/mold. We must note that the canopy is not guaranteed to be waterproof, but does do a nice job of keeping the rain off. It is water resistant, but not waterproof. And you wouldn’t want it to be waterproof, because then water would pool up and cause issues with the canopy. It holds up quite well to the wind, with its aerodynamic design and woven texture letting air through.
It is very lightweight and easy to set up, making it an ideal option for camping, picnics, yard sales, or beach parties. It looks great above a pool and provides nice shade for the water, as well as catching leaves or other debris that may fall into the water. It does have a one-year manufacturer’s warranty. It is particularly handy for yards that receive the afternoon sun. Why sit there baking when you can enjoy comfort under the Outsunny canopy? As mentioned before, it cools the area beneath it by 6.5 degrees. Not only that, but it will protect your eyes and skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. It will completely change your summer experience. It feels like sitting under a big palm tree. It comes with white rope for tying, which some people don’t like the look of. Feel free to use the tying rope of your choice to better match the aesthetic of your setup.
The Outsunny canopy is a well-made, durable canopy that will keep you comfortable in the summer sun. It sells for around $30.
