Sun Safety Tips! 


Fill in the blank: The _____ is the largest organ of the body.

If you guessed your skin, you are right! Do you know how to protect your skin in the summer? If you guessed by applying sunscreen to it, you are right again! 

Even though the skin is the largest organ in our bodies, we tend to overlook its importance to our health. 

To protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, here are some outdoor safety tips: 

  • Avoid being outside when the sun is at its most intense, between
    10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Seek shade when possible, and wear lightweight clothes, sunglasses, and a hat to cover as much skin as possible. 
  • Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 40 or more fifteen minutes before going outside to any exposed skin, even when it’s cloudy. 
  • Remember to apply to the tips of your ear, tips of your feet, back of your neck, and scalp. For lips, use a balm with sunscreen. 
  • Reapply sunscreen about every two hours if you’re swimming or sweating. Remember water and sand reflect sunlight and can intensify the chances of sunburn. 
  • Discard any sunscreen that has separated or looks and smells weird. If you’re not sure how old a bottle of sunscreen is, it’s best to toss it and get a new bottle. 
  • Do not use sunscreen on infants under six months old. Instead, keep them in the shade with a stroller top, umbrella, tree, etc. 
  • If you do get sunburned, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and apply aloe gel as needed. 

Enjoy the summer sunshine safely! And, always use sunscreen!
