Did you know that about 1 in 5 adults will get skin cancer in their lifetime?


Here are some tips to help keep you and your family sun-safe:

  • Wear protective clothing when going outside.
  • Always wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and reapply every 2 hours.
  • Babies under 6 months should be kept out of direct sunlight, however, if there is no way to avoid sun exposure, a small amount of sunscreen can be applied, but remember that it needs 30 minutes to be effective.
  • Make sure the sunscreen you use has “broad spectrum” written on the label to ensure protection against UVA and UVB rays.
  • Wear wide-brimmed hats.
  • Find a shady place, especially if you and your family are outside between 10 am-4 pm (the sun produces the most powerful rays during this time).
