May is Skin Cancer awareness month. Here are some preventative tips for both you and your loved one this summer.
- Do your best to rest in shaded areas between 10 am and 4pm, considering these are usually the times when the sun is shining it’s hardest.
- Always pay special attention to your skin. Make sure you check your skin routinely for the greater possibility to notice any abnormalities sooner.
- Always apply sunscreen and give it a chance to work. Freshly applied sunscreen sometimes won’t be much help. Make sure to read the directions on your sunscreen bottle before heading out to enjoy the day.
- Make sure to cover your head, ears and neck with a sturdy hat to protect you from the suns rays and keep you cool.
