Hello, summer! Sometimes you just need a quick reminder, sun-safety tips from Dr. Kevin L. Schewe.
- Apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before going outside, be diligent about re-applying every two hours and always after swimming or “sweaty” activities.
- Surfaces such as sand or water reflect up to 85% of the sun’s damaging rays. It’s especially important to protect your skin and eyes around these surfaces.
- Don’t forget your neck, ears, nose, hands, and toes, as well as the backs of your arms and legs.
- Love your lips by protecting them with a lip balm and don’t forget to put a little sunscreen on them too!
