Other Ways to Stay Sun Safe

07-19-2019

Wearing sunscreen is a must, but there are many other ways to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays.

Wearing a lightweight, cotton layer to protect your arms, shoulders and legs can offer some sun protection, but clothing with built-in sun protection is even better. Also think about carrying a breezy scarf to cover your chest when the sun is shining bright.

Find a nice shady spot, stay cool and help minimize your exposure to harmful UV rays.

Always wear a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

They’re not just a must-have accessory, but they protect your eyes from from UVA and UVB rays, too. Look for sunglasses that block 99% or 100% of all UV light.

Hats are the best way to keep your face shaded from the sun. Also, your scalp can easily get burned! Keep it protected under a hat.
