The Sun and Ecuador

The skin is the largest organ in your body and shielding your body’s largest organ, your skin, from the equatorial sun, is a high priority in more ways than one. Most of the year Ecuador and the Galapagos have a high UV (Ultra Violet radiation) index of between 10- 12. This means that light-skinned people will burn in about 15 minutes. The midday sun in Ecuador is no joke …Emi is fair .. Emi is really fair, while I have always been able to never wear sunscreen and be out in the sun all day and the next day be this awesome shade of coffee, well Emi is white on a different level she is always hosed down with SPF 100 and still looks like she has passed through a nuclear reactor. On this particular trip she was going to surf school I was armed with several bottles of SPF 100 and I thought I was prepared. I was not ... the weather was cloudy and every time she emerged from the water, I hosed her down again. My all-day efforts were still not enough she ended up with a horrific sunburn to the point where she could not even open her eyes. They completely swelled shut. If my grandma had been alive, she would have said she has sun poison, and I can't say that I disagree with this. How We Protect from Sun Damage in Ecuador
