Now that summer has arrived and COVID guidelines are now less restrictive, people are now back to enjoying the great outdoors. However, a recent 2020 study revealed only 11 percent of Americans wear sunscreen daily. In addition, only 64 percent of U.S. adults reported that they always or almost always wear sunscreen when they plan to be outdoors for long periods of time.
There are many more ways to protect yourself from the sun this summer:
· Sunscreen with protection against UVA and UVB radiation and reply every 1 to 2 hours.
· Lip balm
· Wear a hat that has a brim all the way around to shade the face
· Wear Sunglasses
· Wear long-sleeve shirt and long pants and clothing made with sun-protective materials.
· Limit the amount of time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm.
Also keep in mind that water and sand reflect the damaging rays of the sun, therefore increasing the risk of sunburn. Remember these tips on how to protect yourself from the sun this summer.
