Stylish Options for Sun Protection

Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen rated Broad Spectrum (protecting against both UVA and UVB rays) SPF 50+ and other sun protection measures including:

  • limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • wear UPF 50+ rated clothing including wide-brim hats, long-sleeved shirts, dresses, and pants
  • seek shade from buildings and trees, or make use of a sun parasol

UVA rays cause tanning while UVB rays are responsible for causing sunburns. It is a common misconception that only sunburns are reason for concern, when the tanning caused by UVA rays is also a visible sign of sun damage and increases the risk for skin cancer.
