Sunburn Avoidance Tips

Hiding under an umbrella or hat brim is completely ineffective without proper sunscreen. The sun's rays reflect off concrete, sand and water.

Staying in the pool is no protection. It increases the hazard and water transmits the sun's rays and intensifies them.

Perfume and cologne increase susceptibility to ultraviolet rays. Fragrance in sun products is useless except for attracting insects.

Any medication you are taking has the potential of increasing your risk of burning. Check with your physician.

The sun is the most dangerous between 10 AM and 2 PM.

You can burn as easily on a cloudy day as a sunny day. Your use of sun protection products should be exactly the same when its cloudy.

Light clothes provide no protection whatsoever from the rays of the sun.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: Apply a sun block with minimum SPF 15 everyday, and an SPF 30 when outdoors for extended periods of time.
