PREVENTION is key when it comes to melanoma. Make sure these items are in your Melanoma PPE Kit:


Sunscreen should be applied every day, regardless of the amount of sun. The sunscreen should be:

• Broad spectrum • SPF 30 or higher

• Applied at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapplied every 2 hours and after swimming or sweating, using one ounce (a golf ball size amount) with each application

Protective Clothing

In addition to sunscreen, whenever spending a lot of time outdoors, be sure to wear: • Long-sleeved shirt • Pants • Wide-brimmed hat • Sunglasses

Seek Shade

The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. When it’s not possible to stay in the shade think about using an umbrella.
