Sun Protection Tips

Follow These Important Sun Protection Tips

  1. Carry your sunscreen and lip screen with you, so you can reapply them every 2 hours.
  2. Be aware that certain medications can increase your sensitivity to the sun. Talk to your health care provider about any medications you are taking.
  3. “Spot Check” your moles once a month. Know the A, B, and C’s of skin cancer and see your health care provider right away if you notice any skin changes.

Protection from the sun is required not only during the summer, but is also important year round.

Remember that most cases of skin cancer are preventable, but it’s up to you to protect yourself.
