Protect yourself from the sun on spring break

Spring break is just around the corner, and many of you may have plans to go somewhere warm and sunny. Although getting a little sun can have some benefits, excessive and unprotected sun exposure can result in permanent skin discoloration, changes in skin texture, and skin cancer.

If you take a few simple precautions, you can have plenty of fun in the sun this spring break. Even one severe sunburn increases your risk of melanoma, a potentially deadly form of skin cancer. The bottom line for everyone, whether you’re at high risk of sunburn or not, is to minimize the dangers of UV exposure by wearing the best sunscreen you can find. For eye protection, wear wraparound sunglasses that provide 100 percent UV ray protection. If you wondering if sun protection is really important, here is a short video.

So, always wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30, reapply every two to three hours, and use hats, umbrellas and beach tents to maintain healthy and great looking skin.
