Once again, with summer approaching and the weather better it’s time to get out and get a little sun! The thing is, don’t go out and get too much sun. The UVA and UVB rays the sun hits us with can be dangerous. Over 76,000 cases of skin cancer come up every year and much of it is preventable. The use of sun screen has helped, but covering up helps even more. It’s okay to get some sun and it’s even good for you creating Vitamin D which your body needs. However, most of us go overboard so that we can get that golden tan that seems to make us look healthier. The problem is that while we may look great we may be slowly killing ourselves. So go ahead and get some sun, enjoy the warmth, just protect yourself so you are around long enough to enjoy even more.
How to celebrate – Get your tan from a bottle. Find the sun screen that best suits you. Wear a wide brimmed hat to protect your face and neck.
