It's Sun Safety Month
Keep in mind the sun is strongest between
10 am and 4 pm.
Wear clothing that's dark and tightly woven.
Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
Remember that UV rays bounce off sand, snow, concrete, and water.
Keep very young children (6 months or less)
out of the sun.
Sunscreens need to be applied liberally and evenly over all exposed areas.
Apply a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher whenever you're outdoors. To achieve adequate UV protection you should use products that provide broad spectrum protection, which means protection against both UVB and UVA rays.
For children, the SSA recommends sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher.
Apply sunscreen before going outdoors and reapply often.
Reapply sunscreen after swimming, perspiring, and toweling off.
Provide complete sunscreen coverage for your skin (including neck, ears and lips!).
For people with thin or thinning hair, apply sunscreen to the scalp as well.
And remember stay in the shade whenever possible!
