Protect yourself from excessive exposure to the ultraviolet rays (UV) of the sun.

  • Lather on the sunscreen. Use a sunscreen with Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15. (But not just any sunscreen - check out these tips for finding a product that's safe for you and the environment.) Apply it liberally to all exposed areas of your body, particularly your ears, face, back and neck. Reapply every two hours when working, playing, or exercising outdoors; even waterproof sunscreen can come off when you towel off sweat or water.
  • Listen to the weather reports. The UV Index, developed by the National Weather Service and the Environmental Protection Agency, provides a forecast of the expected risk of overexposure to the sun and indicates the degree of caution that you should take when working, playing or exercising outdoors. Weather predictions in print and broadcast media announce the UV Index daily.
  • Stay clear of the midday sun as much as possible. The sun's UV rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If you're spending the day at the beach, take refuge under a beach umbrella during those hours when the sun's rays are most intense.
