Do you Practice Sun Safety?

PUTTING PEOPLE FIRST

Summer is here! That means spending more time with the family, more outdoor activities, and most importantly more exposure to the sun and its harsh UV rays. Increased exposure to UV radiation increases the risk of skin cancer. Due to climate change, the stratospheric ozone is thinning allowing less protection from the sun’s harmful rays, which in result increases the UV radiation levels over time. We advise everyone not to rely on temperature as a guide, but to check the sun protection times daily to see when the UV is forecast to be 3 or above. Using the tips below, challenge yourself to practice good sun safety all through July!

 

–No spray on sunscreens–this can cause you to miss spots!

–Choosing the right sunscreen-the American Academy of Dermatology recommends consumers choose a sunscreen which states on the label: SPF 30 or higher, broad Spectrum, and water resistant to ensure optimal protection.

–One ounce of sunscreen, enough to fill a shot glass, is considered the amount needed to properly cover your body.

–Broad Spectrum sunscreen-this is one that protects against UVA and UVB rays. Discard your sunscreen after the expiration date. The date should be stamped on the bottle. In most cases, sunscreen will last about 3 years.
