National Sun Safety Week

This week is National Sun Safety Week and here’s a weeks worth of sun safety tips:

Monday: Pest Repellants decrease sunscreen’s SPF as much as 1/3. When using a combination, make use of a sun block lotion with a higher SPF!

Tuesday: Over contact with the sun’s dangerous rays may lead to sun burns which will enhance your risk of building cancer of the skin. As a result, look at your local UV Index which offers important info to enable you to strategy ones own outside activities with techniques that prevent overexposure for the sunlight. Your UV Index prediction is issued every day by the National Weather Service and EPA.

Wednesday: Find the shade whenever feasible! The sun’s UV rays are actually strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. so recall the shadow rule when in the sun: If your shadow is short it’s time to abort and look for the shade!.

Thursday : Do not be fooled through color as well as cost of Sun shades! The ability to prevent UV lighting is not determined by the darkness of the lenses or even the cost. While equally plastic along with glass lenses absorb some UV light, UV absorption is improved upon by having certain chemical substances to the lens materials through producing or by applying particular lens coatings. Constantly decide on sunglasses that are defined as obstructing 99-100% of UV rays. Some manufacturers’ brands will state “UV absorption as much as 400nm.” This is the same thing as 100% UV absorption. Look before you decide on!

Friday: Sunburn does not only take place throughout the summer! Water, snowfall as well as sand reflect the dangerous sun’s rays, which can enhance your chance of burning from the sun. Protect yourself year-round by making use of sun block lotion with proper protection from both UVA along with UVB sun light, along with an SPF with 15 and / or greater. Use protective garments, such as long-sleeved rash guards, jeans, some sort of wide-brimmed cap, sunglasses, as well as sun block lotion on your exposed areas of the skin anytime possible!
