May 27th Sun Screen Day

Well among those things starting to open up first after months of “Stay at home” are the beaches. In our hurry to get back outside we need to remember to bring the sun screen with us. After having been inside for so long our skin needs the sun screen to protect it from the Ultraviolet Rays that can cause us so much damage. The higher the SPF the more protected we are. It is suggested we start with at least an SPF15. Some of us have been going outside every day but for those who haven’t been able to, remember you will burn much easier than before we were forced to stay inside. Enjoy the sun, get that vitamin D, but be safe!

How to celebrate – Get out and enjoy the sun. Protect yourself from the sun. Hit the beaches!

May 9th Sun Awareness Day

May 9th Sun Awareness Day

Ah, if you weren’t aware of it… the sun is over your head during the day. Become aware of it! That thing that shines and makes it hot is the sun! Actually sun awareness day is about becoming educated on what the sun can do for you and do to you. The sun can be rewarding, and it can also be dangerous. If you keep yourself aware of the sun and its benefits you can make life all that much better, but when you forget about it you can pay the price for your ignorance.

How to celebrate – Don’t forget your sunscreen. Remember hats and caps to shade your face. Get some vitamin D!
