Apply sunscreen every day! To help prevent skin cancer, apply generous amounts of SPF 30 (or higher) sunscreen for everyday protection. Reapply often during outdoor activities, especially after swimming, perspiring, or using a towel.
Pick the right product. Whether you’re shopping or skiing, there’s a sunscreen that’s right for you. Look for cosmetics and moisturizers with sunscreen as well.
Going out? Cover up. If you plan to be outside for an extended period, remember to wear protective clothing. Wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, long sleeves, and long pants help shield your skin from sun damage.
Be a shade seeker. Try to avoid the sun during those hours when the sun’s rays are the strongest: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
