How do I protect myself from UV rays?
It isn't possible or practical to avoid sunlight completely, and it would be unwise to reduce your level of activity to avoid the outdoors because physical activity is important for good health. But too much sunlight can be harmful. There are some steps you can take to limit your exposure to UV rays.
Some people think about sun protection only when they spend a day at the lake, beach, or pool. But sun exposure adds up day after day, and it happens every time you are in the sun. "Slip Slop Slap and Wrap" is a catch phrase that can help you remember the 4 key steps you can take to protect yourself from UV rays:
-Slip on a shirt.
-Slop on sunscreen.
-Slap on a hat.
-Wrap on sungalsses to protect the eyesand sensitive skin around them.
