Protect yourself from exposure to the sun’s rays and reduce your risk of sunburn, skin cancer, and heat stress:
- Apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and both UVA and UVB protection before you go outside, even on cloudy days.
- Reapply sunscreen after swimming or sweating or after staying outside for more than two hours.
- Wear clothing, sunglasses, and a hat with a wide brim to protect exposed skin.
- Seek shade, especially during midday hours.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
