July is Sun Safety Month!


Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy physically distanced activities such as picnics, beaches, swimming in backyard pools, and simply working outdoors. Remember, however, that these activities can expose your skin to harmful UV rays. By taking precautions, you can safely enjoy outdoor activities by limiting your exposure and learning more about the skin you are in!

    Protect your skin by,

  • Seeking shade and wearing protective clothing
  • Using extra caution near water and sand
  • Wearing sunblock with a minimum SPF of 15
  • Remembering to apply sunblock to ears, scalp, lips, neck, tops of feet, and backs of hands
