Sun Safety

Posted 8.12.22 in General

During the year everyone should always be cautious of the harmful effects the suns UV rays can have on the body. However, we need to be especially cautious in the summer months. Some ways the FDA recommends reducing your risks of damage are below:

1.       Limiting your time in the sun, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. This is when the suns UV rays are the strongest.

2.       Even on cloudy days the FDA recommends that you use broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.

3.       There is no sunscreen that completely blocks UV radiation. So, to ensure you stay safe other protections are needed. Some examples are staying in the shade, wearing a hat, etc.
