SPEND LESS TIME IN THE SUN If you’re planning to spend a significant amount of time in the sun, consider your environment. Will there be plenty of shade? Will you have to bring your own? What’s the best way to step out of the sun for a few minutes?

Knowing how to protect yourself from UV rays is the first step to having a safe, fun-filled summer!
