Sun Safety Tips | 177

Time spent in the sun can quicken the aging process and raise the risk of skin cancer. Here are a few brief suggestions for protecting your skin from the sun.

Use broad-spectrum sunscreens with SPF levels of 15 or higher.

Limit your exposure to the sun between 10am and 2pm. The sun’s beams are strongest at this time.

For further protection, cover skin with clothing such as long sleeve shirts, slacks, sun glasses, and caps.

If you are sweating or in the water, reapply sunscreen at least every two hours and more often.

Skin should be covered with enough sunscreen. Many people just use a very minimal layer of sunscreen.

Enjoy the sun in safety and good fun!
