Sunburn Prevention

At the end of the summer and with Labor Day coming soon, there is that one last trip to take advantage of outdoor activities and to get that last bit of a tan from the summer sun.

There are ways of protecting your skin from UV rays and reduce your risk of melanoma:
  • wear a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher
  • use waterproof sunscreen
  • reapply sunscreen often, usually every two hours
  • cover all exposed areas
  • "broad spectrum" protects against both UV_A and UV_B rays
  • wear wrap around sunglasses to protect your eyes
  • apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside
