Sun Safety

Cover up. - When you are out in the sun, wear clothing to protect as much skin as possible.

Use a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher

Wear a hat. - A hat with at least a 2 to 3-inch brim all around is ideal because it protects areas often exposed to the sun.

Wear sunglasses that block UV rays.

Limit direct sun exposure as much as possible during peak UV radiation hours between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps.

Select cosmetic products and contact lenses that offer UV protection.

Protect children from the sun. - Babies younger than 6 months should be kept out of direct sunlight and protected from the sun using hats and protective clothing.
