Sun protection 101

Follow these tips to soak up the sun without letting the harsh UV radiation damage your skin:

  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight between 10 AM and 4 PM when UV rays are most hazardous. Stay indoors or remain shaded under a tree, umbrella or other shelters.
  • Apply sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Be sure the sunscreen is broad spectrum, providing protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Reapply every two hours, especially after swimming or sweating.
  • When possible, wear clothing that covers your arms and legs, and a hat with a wide brim.
  • Don’t forget about your eyes – wear sunglasses, preferably the wraparound variety, to keep your eyes and the sensitive skin around them safe from UV rays. Check for labels that say the lenses meet ANSI UV requirements or provide UV absorption up to 400 nanometers.
  • Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps, which expose the skin to harsh UV rays and contribute to long-term skin damage.
  • Take steps to protect your skin from the sun year-round in all weather types. UV rays are still harmful on cloudy and overcast days.
