Ways to Protect Your Skin from UV Radiation

Use Sunscreen

Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen. Reapply every two hours, more if swimming or sweating.

Wear Protective Clothing

Wear long-sleeved shirts, slacks, and wide-brimmed hats to avoid direct sun exposure.

Seek Shade

Stay in the shade, especially during high sunshine.

Avoid Tanning Beds

Tanning beds release UVA and UVB rays that raise skin cancer risk.

Use Sunglasses

Wear sunglasses that protect UVA and UVB radiation.

Stay Hydrated

Lots of water keeps your skin moisturized and sun-resistant
