We all love summer-the sun, the waves, and the outdoors. While you are outside enjoying the weather, don’t forget to protect yourself and your loved ones from the sun’s harmful rays. The sun’s rays are strongest between 10:00AM-3PM. During these times especially, try to limit your exposure to the sun and CHOOSE YOUR COVER:
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US. Over 61,000 people were diagnosed with melanomas of the skin in 2009 and about 9,000 people died from this preventable disease.* The CDC recommends preventive measures such as: wear sunscreen, seek shade, cover up with long sleeve clothing, pants, a wide brim hat, and UVA/UVB protective sunglasses to minimize your chances of getting some form of skin cancer.
Enjoy summer responsibly!
