Ready, Set, Summer!
Be prepared with these tips on sun safety & PROTECT YOUR SKIN!
The sun’s ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) cause sunburn, aging of the skin, and skin cancer.
Spending longer periods of “unprotected” time in the sun during childhood and over the years can increase the risk of skin cancer later in life. Sun safety should be practiced daily beginning at an early age.
C = Clothing that is protective against the sun, such as long-sleeved shirts, tightly woven fabrics.
H = Hats with a wide brim.
E = Eyeglasses that block UVA and UVB rays.
S = Sunscreen with SPF 15 or greater, applied properly, and used daily, year-round.
S = Shade, especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Avoid tanning salons and sunbathing.
