Protect Your Skin from Ultra Violet Light
Sunscreen will help to protect your skin from ultraviolet radiation damage that can cause skin cancers and premature aging. It isn't the only solution, though. Think of skin protection as a top priority, and avoid prolonged sun exposure whenever possible. To shield your skin:
- Avoid sunbathing, using tanning booths or sun lamps.
- Use sunscreen daily. Choose an SPF15 or higher, and reapply it every couple of hours if you're outdoors, even on overcast days.
- During hot, bright days, stay out of the sun, particularly between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
- Wear protective clothing in the sun, like hats, sunglasses and long-sleeved shirts.
