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.
- 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.
