Sun Safe Tips

Sunscreen is just one of the steps in your family’s sun safe routine. You should also avoid prolonged sun exposure, wear protective clothing, a hat and sunglasses. Reapply frequently every 2 hours or more often when sweating and immediately after swimming or using a towel. Avoid prolonged high-risk sun exposure.
