Sun Protection

Protecting Yourself from the Sun

  • Stay out of the sun at the hottest part of the day (10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) if you live in the Sunbelt states, below L 37°, and 11-3 if you live north of L 37°
  • If you can't avoid being outside in the hottest part of the day, use extra protection
  • Find shade or carry it with you by using an umbrella or hat
  • Wear protective clothing, such as a long-sleeved shirt and pants. If you choose a lightweight fabric, you can keep cool as well. Some clothes have a Sun Protective Factor (SPF) built in, and still allow for a lot of ventilation.
  • Wear sunglasses with UV protection

***It's important to look at your skin every month for any growth that is new or changing. Look all over your body.
