As the school year winds down and summer knocks on our door, the warmth of the sun is welcoming. Be sure to drink plenty of water and work in a little physical activity so that you remain healthy as you enjoy another wonderful summer break! While you enjoy the outdoors this summer, protect yourself from skin cancer by seeking shade, wearing sunglasses, a hat, and sun-protective clothing, and using sunscreen.

How to Protect Yourself

Take precautions against sun exposure every day of the year, especially during midday hours (10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.), when UV rays are strongest and do the most damage. UV rays can reach you on cloudy days, and can reflect off of surfaces like water, cement, sand, and snow.

• Seek shade, especially during midday hours.

• Cover up with clothing to protect exposed skin.

• Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade the face, head, ears, and neck.

• Wear sunglasses that wrap around and block as close to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays as possible.

• Put on sunscreen with broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) protection and sun protective factor (SPF) 15 or higher.

• Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. The UV rays from them are as dangerous as the UV rays from the sun.

• Don't forget to drink water
