Practice Safe Sun

Getting Ready for Summer

No UV For You

Summertime is when we spend a lot of time outdoors. And why not? There are more daylight hours. More holidays. Getting closer to nature easier. Besides, it just feels so healthy. 

 

What’s not to love about summer? What’s not healthy? Almost nothing, except two letters: U and V. Ultraviolet (UV)  radiation from the summer sun can do a lot of harm to our skin and eyes. In the short term, the damage shows up as sunburn and freckles, but it also sets the stage for skin cancer development later on.

 

At Crossover Health, we want to get you outside. But we also want you to keep your skin and eyes healthy. That’s why we want to help you practice safe sun.

Get outside.
But be smart about it.

You don’t need to stay indoors and hide from the sun, but there are a few things you should know to help you deal with UV light.

 

  • Avoid sun exposure during peak times of the day—10 am to 2 pm.
  • Wear sun protective clothing, including long sleeved shirts, sunglasses, pants and wide-brimmed hats that shield the face, ears and back of the neck.
  • Apply sunscreen that provides UVA and UVB protection to exposed parts of the skin and reapply after sweating, swimming or at 1-2 hour intervals.
  • Wear sunglasses that have UVA and UVB protection. Remember that it’s not how dark they are that matters.

Our blog this month has a lot of info for you about UV, and practicing safe sun. Read it for some bright ideas.
