Sunscreens

Be Sun Smart to Live Longer and Look Younger:

  • SLIP on UPF protective clothing.
  • SLOP on golf ball sized amount of broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ to exposed skin.
  • SLAP on a wide-brimmed hat.
  • WRAP on broad spectrum sunglasses.

Remember:

  • Seek shade whenever possible. The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Use extra caution near water and sand, as they reflect the damaging rays of the sun.
  • Avoid tanning beds. Exposure increases your cancer risk.
  • Reapplication of your sunscreen is important, as chemical sunscreens stop working after two hours and physical sunscreens after four hours. Sunscreens also are not water resistant past 45 minutes.
  • If you notice anything on your skin changing, growing or bleeding, contact DOCs. Skin cancer is very treatable when caught early.
