Sun Safety

There is no safe way to tan! Tanning beds may give off 10 to 15 times as much UVA as the sun does, causing more damage to your skin and raising your risk of skin cancer.

Be sun safe this summer with the following tips: use sunscreen with an SPF 30, keep skin covered with light-coloured clothing and a wide-brimmed hat, and use shady areas to take a break from sun exposure. Also, limit outdoor activities between peak heat hours of 11 am – 4 pm.

Sun burns can be a serious problem. If you get one blistering sunburn as a child or teenager, your risk of developing melanoma (a form of skin cancer) is doubled. At the first sign of sunburn (warm, sensitive, pink skin), get out of the sun and apply a cool compress to the area. Aloe vera gel can also be used. If blisters appear, seek medical attention.

Did you know that the sun's UV rays don't feel warm on your skin? Just because you don't feel warm, doesn't mean you aren't being affected by the sun. Also, it's possible to get a sun burn on cloudy days as the clouds don't block the UV rays. Be sun safe every time you're outdoors.

Everyone wants to spend time outside in the summer months, enjoying the sunshine. However, sun stroke is a serious medical condition that can happen from being in the direct sunlight too long. If you notice that you stop sweating, feel confused, fatigued, or lightheaded and dizzy, get out of the sun and heat and seek medical attention.
