PRACTICING

Safe Sun

PRACTICAL TIPS AND METHODS OF PROTECTION

Practicing "safe sun" refers to adopting healthy habits and protective measures to minimize the potential harmful effects of sun exposure. Beyond proper skincare, there are some practical things everyone can do to practice safer sun habits:

SEEK SHADE WHEN POSSIBLE

Limit your time in direct sunlight, especially during peak hours between 10:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M.. When outdoors, try to stay in the shade, under an umbrella, or wear protective clothing when possible.

WEaR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

Opt for lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that covers your arms and legs and choose fabrics with a tight weave that provide better sun protection. Don't forget to wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to shield your face and eyes from the sun.

BE AWARE OF REFLECTIVE SURFACES

Remember that water, sand, and snow can reflect sunlight and intensify sun exposure. Take extra precautions when near these surfaces by wearing appropriate protection and reapplying sunscreen more frequently.

CHECK YOUR MEDICATIONS

Some medications can increase your sensitivity to the sun. If you are taking any prescription or over-the-counter drugs, check with your healthcare provider or pharmacist to see if they can make your skin more vulnerable to sunburn or other sun-related issues.

STAY HYDRATED

REGULARLY CHECK YOUR SKIN

Perform self-examinations of your skin to check for any changes, such as new moles or spots, or any changes in existing ones. If you notice anything unusual, consult a dermatologist.
