June is UV Safety Month.  Protect your skin this summer!

Some tips and facts to help you protect your skin from damaging rays.
  • Look for water resistant sunscreen and reapply it every 2-3 hours if you are in the pool or sweating.
  • 5-10% of skin cancer occurs on the eyelid.
    • Protect your eyes!  Always buy sunglasses labeled "UV400" or "100% UV Protection."
    • Swipe non-menthol lip balm with SPF onto eyelids.  Don't worry, the wax won't migrate into eyes or lead to irritation, but will protect your eyelids.
  • Shield yourself with sunscreen and protect your skin from skin cancer!  Choose broad spectrum (protects from UVA and UVB rays), and choose at least SPF 30.
    • Look for clothing items labeled UPF 50 or higher, which indicates fabrics have been designed and chemically-treated to effectively block UV rays.
