Summer Sun Safety Tip:
Summertime can mean fun in the sun with family vacations, outdoor sports and activities, and summer trips. Be sure to “block the sun, not the fun” by applying sunscreen SPF 30+ about 20 minutes before going outdoors and by reapplying often! Remember, the sun is at its highest and strongest between 10:00 AM-4:00 PM.
The SSA encourages parents to lead by example. If you practice sun safety, your children are likely to model those sun safe habits. Teach your children at an early age to wear hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen outdoors.
