SUN FACTS

  • When possible, avoid outdoor activities during the hours between 10am and 4pm, when the sun's rays are the strongest.

  • Always wear a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.

  • Be sure to reapply sunscreen frequently, especially after swimming, sweating or drying off.

  • Wear a hat with a broad-brim all around because it protects areas often exposed to the sun.

  • Wear clothing to protect as much skin as possible.

  • To protect your eyes from damage, wear sunglasses that filter UVA & UVB radiation.

  • Consider wearing suncreams and lip protectors with an SPF 15 or higher.

  • Swimmers should regularly reapply sunscreen. UV rays reflect off water and sand, increasing the intensity of UV radiation.

  • Skiers should apply high factor sunscreen of SPF30 or SPF50.  Sun rays reflecting off snow at altitude is intense and can burn unprotected skin rapidly.

  • Some medications, such as antibiotics, can increase your skins sensitivity to the sun. Ask your doctor of pharmacist for more information about the medications you are taking.

  • Children need extra protection from the sun. Sunburns before the age of 18 dramatically increases the risk of skin cancer. Encourage children to play in the shade, wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen regularly.
