Practice Sun Safety this Summer
Summer is here, and that means sunny days are ahead! While having fun in the sun, it’s important to remember to monitor your skin’s exposure to the sun. Repeated overexposure can be a contributing factor toward skin cancer, the most common type of cancer in the United States. Here are some key tips to remember so you can enjoy the weather safely:
- Seek shade
- Wear protective clothing
- Apply sunscreen to all skin not covered by clothing
