Best Tips to Avoid Sun Exposure

How can I protect myself from too much sun exposure? It’s easy! Here are the top 10 tips to help keep you and your family protected.

Sun exposure is a major cause of skin cancer, the most dangerous type is melanoma and can be fatal if not treated. Doctors recommend taking precautions to avoid sun exposure. The UV Index i s a system to measure how much protection you need against overexposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight.

It’s based on how much UV radiation reaches Earth’s surface and doesn’t take into account other factors like cloud cover or pollution. The UV Index is a scale from 1 to 11+, with higher numbers indicating greater levels of sun exposure. Sunburns can happen in just 15 minutes, so it’s important to know when you’ve had enough exposure and need to go indoors or apply sunscreen.

  • Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when it’s strongest, and seek shade when outside during these hours if possible.
    • Limit time outdoors: Even on cloudy days, limit your time outdoors to less than 15 minutes at a time without sunscreen on exposed skin (about 30 minutes total).
    • Look for shade trees: Find some shade trees that provide cover from the sun and wind while you’re outside with kids playing sports or enjoying your yard.
    • When exposed to sun outdoors: Make sure to wear a wide-brimmed hat or use an umbrella to protect your face and head.
    • Apply sunscreen: every two hours toall exposed areas, including your hands, feet, ears and lips (or wear lip balm with SPF). Even if it is cloudy or you are indoors for a long period of time.
  • Use extra caution: Whenever you are near water, snow, sand, concrete, or other reflective surfaces that can intensify UV rays up to threefold.
