July is UV Safety Awareness Month

We’re here to inform you about the risks associated with unprotected sun exposure and things you can do to minimize your risk.

As many of us get ready to enjoy those warm rays this summer, we must remember to protect our skin and eyes from the damaging effects of the sun. The good news is there are things you can do to minimize the risk.

Cover Up: Wearing a Hat (preferably wide brimmed) or other shade-protective clothing can partly shield your skin from the harmful effects of UV ray exposure. Proper clothing may include long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, umbrellas and sunglasses - for eye protection.

Stay in the Shade: The sun's glare is strongest at midday. Staying in the shade between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. will further protect your skin. The sun can still damage your skin on cloudy days or in the winter. That’s why it’s important to stay protected throughout the year.

Choose the Right Sunscreen: This is extremely important. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) new regulations for sunscreen labeling recommend that your sunscreen have a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15, and should protect against both Ultraviolet A (UV-A) and Ultraviolet B (UV-B) rays. When on antibiotics skin is more sensitive. Take pre-cautions when choosing sunscreen. Use the Right Amount of Sunscreen: According to the National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention, most people apply only 25- 50 percent of the recommended amount of sunscreen. When out in the sun, it's important that you apply at least one ounce (a palmful) of sunscreen every two hours.

You should apply it more often if you are sweating or swimming, even if the sunscreen is waterproof. By taking the proper precautions and following these guidelines you and your loved ones can enjoy the sun safely.

If you are having any problems after being in the sun, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider.
