General Sun Safety
-Apply sunscreen at least 15 to 30 minutes before going outdoors. If you can do it an hour ahead of time, that’s even better.
-Don’t forget to wear protection on cloudy days as well as sunny ones. UVB rays may be partially blocked by the grayness, but UVA rays are not.
-Know that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Protect yourself appropriately. Also know that you should use sunscreen no matter what time you go out to enjoy the day.
-Sunscreen isn’t the only form of protection from the sun. Wearing a hat, sun protective clothing or even using an umbrella can help prevent harmful damage to your skin and help avoid a sunburn.
-Don’t forget those often-missed spots like ears, lips, and nose.
