5 reasons why we all should love being beside the sea

3. Vitamin D


The dark and gloomy days of time spent in the UK recently prompted Public Health England (PHE) to suggest we should all start taking vitamin D supplements during autumn and winter.

Indoor jobs and poor diets are also depriving us of this so-called 'sunshine vitamin' and so time spent in foreign climes where we see a lot more sun than we do here is the perfect time for a top-up! Just be sure to limit your time in the sun, avoid sunburn and make sure you protect yourself from the UVB rays with adequate sunscreen. Take note, dermatologists recommend using SPF15 or SPF30.
