(HealthDay News) -- When you're on a trip, don't forget to pay attention to your health and protect yourself from illness or injury.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists these safe travel tips:

  • Protect skin with a sunscreen that offers both UVA and UVB protection.
  • Wear insect repellent, as well as long-sleeved pants and shirts to protect against bug bites.
  • Wash your hands often, and drink only bottled water in areas where tap water may not be safe for drinking.
  • Choose foods carefully.
  • Limit alcohol intake and protect yourself in a car and on the water.
  • Don't touch animals or pets you don't know.
