A Sun Smart Checklist

Thursday, August 14, 2008

We need the sun to live, but we also know of the grave danger of over exposure.
Follow this steps to protect your self.

Wear protecting clothing , including a wide-brimmed hat, a long sleeved shirt and long pants, during prolonged period of sun exposure.

When possible, avoid direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m
Wear sunglasses with UV protective lenses outdoor and while driving to protect your eyes. If you wear prescription glasses, these can be fitted with UV protective lenses as well.
Avoid years of aging sun damages on your hands by wearing driving gloves in the car everyday or using hand cream with UV protection.
Use sunscreen with sun protection factor of 15 or higher once a day or more on all exposed skin. If you have short hair, don't forget the top of your ears and the back of your neck.
Make sure your sunscreen offers true board-spectrum UVA and UVB protection . Apply enough and reapply often.
If your skin is sensitive, use a sunblock containing titanium dioxide or zinc oxide with a minimum of SPF of 30.
Apply a lip balm with an SPF of 15 and higher and reapply frequently.
Be sure to apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before exposure or going outside.
Keep sun protection product close at hand- in the glove compartment of the car, in your bag,in your desk at work- everywhere your likely to be able and not just in the bathroom.
Cosmetic and skin care product with SPF rating won't provide all of the sun protection you need. For maximum protection, use both layering one over the other.
Visit your dermatologist yearly for a full body skin examination, particularly if you got bad sunburns as a child or teem or have had close relatives with skin cancer
