This summer, protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours when the sun is strongest.
Wear protective gear like wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.
Dress in a long-sleeved shirt and pants or a long skirt when possible. If that’s unpractical, wear a T-shirt or beach cover-up.
Apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 before going outside–even on cloudy or overcast days.
Avoid indoor tanning. Getting a “base tan” before vacations damages skin and won’t protect against sun exposure on your trip.
By practicing sun safety, you’ll reduce the risk of premature skin aging, painful sunburns and even skin cancer.
