July is Sun Safety Month
The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes. You can reduce your risk of skin damage and skin cancer by seeking shade under an umbrella, tree, or other shelter before you need relief from the sun. Your best bet to protect your skin is to use sunscreen and wear protective clothing (made from tightly woven OR sun protective fabric), hat, and sunglasses when you're outdoors – even when you're in the shade. While you may remember to apply sunscreen before you head to the pool or the beach during the summer heat, your skin should be protected any time you're in the sun – even during the winter. So, slather on the sunscreen before you head outside and don't forget to re-apply throughout the day to keep yourself safe from the sun year-round.
