Summer is officially starting soon and with the beautiful hot days sun safety protection comes to mind. Here is a great list of some Top 10 Sun Safety Tips for you and your family!
- Seek the shade, especially during the sun’s peak hours (10:00am – 2:00pm)
- Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher (preferably with natural/organic ingredients).
- Cover up with clothing, especially a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
- Avoid tanning parlors and artificial tanning devices.
- Keep newborns out of the sun.
- Teach children good sun-protective practices.
- Examine your skin from head to toe once every month.
- Have a professional examination annually.
- Avoid tanning and especially – do not burn! (One blistering sunburn doubles your risk for skin cancer.)
- Wear protective clothing like UV Skinz during water play!
