Summer fun
Fun in the Sun!

CAUTION!

A fair skinned person with no protection can burn in as little as 10 minutes during the midday hours between 10 am and 4 pm when the UV index is at it’s most intense!

National Sun Safety Week is June 7-12 and is meant to call attention to the dangers ¬†of the sun’s UV rays and how to protect ourselves while we are enjoying all the fun outdoor activities this summer.

Facts about the sun:

  • Exposure to the sun’s UV rays continues as the ozone layer is depleted.
  • Snow, water, sand and concrete reflect 85-90% of the sun’s UV ray.s
  • You can still burn on a cloudy day.
  • Children get 3 times more sun exposure than adults, on average.
  • Use a minimum SPF15 for adults and SPF30 for children for the best protection.

Play it safe this summer and use a broad spectrum SPF product to protect your skin from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays and be sure to apply often.
