As school comes to an end and Summer ramps up, people will be spending more time outdoors. Here are some sun safety tips for summer 2021
- Avoid midday sun (between 12-3pm). This is when UV rays are most intense.
- Seek shade.
- Wear protective clothing including UPF rated clothing, wide brimmed hats, and sunglasses.
- Wear broad spectrum sunscreen. Reapply often.
- Eat a lot of fruits and veggies because these contain an abundance to phytonutrients including antioxidants that can help the body repair UV radiation-induced DNA damage.
