This month’s focus: UV Safety!

Though basking in the sun is relaxing and fun, it’s important to be mindful of sun exposure. Skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States – with over 2 million people diagnosed annually.

By the Numbers

  • In the continental U.S., UV rays tend to be strongest from 10am – 4pm.
  • SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It indicates the level of protection against UV rays. For example, SPF 30 blocks 97% of UV rays.

In Detail

The easiest way to prevent sun damage and protect your skin is to avoid getting a sunburn. Follow these tips to stay safe in the sun this summer:

  • Wear sunscreen every day, even if it’s cloudy. Use a water-resistant, broad-spectrum sunscreen that is at least SPF 30.
  • Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours. Reapply every hour if you are swimming or sweating.
  • Try to avoid scheduling outdoor activities between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun is at its peak.
  • Wear clothes made of tightly woven fabrics and a hat that shields your face, neck, and ears. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  • Take advantage of the shade.
