Before you go outside, remember these tips in addition to applying sunscreen:

  • Plan around the sun. Go outdoors in early morning or late afternoon when the sun is lower in the sky.
  • Find shade – or make it. Picnic under a tree or take a canopy to the beach. Keep infants in the shade.
  • Sunglasses are essential. They’re not just a fashion accessory; sunglasses protect your eyes from UV radiation.
  • Check UV Index. The UV Index provides important information to help you plan your outdoor activities in ways that prevent sun overexposure.
