While you’re out enjoying the weather, remember to protect your- self and your family from the sun. Protect self from sun when outdoors Also apply sunscreen to your lips, ears and nose as these parts of your body can burn eas- ily. Reapply sunscreen (even waterproof sun- screen) every 2 hours, or more often if you’ve been swimming, sweating or if it has rubbed off. To further protect yourself from the sun:  Wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses that protect against UVA and UVB rays.  Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before reapplying a second sub- stance, such as insect repellent.  Apply sunscreen on cloudy days, as sunrays can still damage your skin.  Avoid overexposure between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Keep babies under one year old out of direct sunlight to prevent skin damage and dehydration. While some effects of sun damage are visible within a few hours (tan or sun- burn), others may only appear years down the road. Keep in mind that excessive tanning and sunburns can lead to skin cancers, premature aging of the skin, eye damage and more. Never use suntan oil, as it offers no pro- tection and causes the skin to burn quicker.
