Aloe Up Tips For Fun In The Sun

  • When possible, avoid outdoor activities during the hours between 10am and 4pm, when the sun's rays are the strongest
  • Always wear a sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher
  • Be sure to reapply sunscreen frequently, especially after swimming, sweating or drying off
  • To protect your eyes from damage, wear sunglasses that block UVA & UVB radiation
  • Wear a hat with a broad-brim all around because it protects areas often exposed to the sun.
  • Wear clothing to protect as much skin as possible.
  • Consider wearing cosmetics and lip protectors with an SPF 15 or higher.
  • Swimmers should regularly reapply sunscreen.
  • UV rays reflect off water and sand, increasing the intensity of UV radiation.
  • Some medications, such as antibiotics, can increase your skins sensitivity to the sun.
  • Ask your doctor of pharmacist for more information about the medications you are taking.
  • Children need extra protection from the sun, play in the shade, wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen regularly
  • Sunburns before the age of 18 dramatically increases the risk of  skin cancer
