Be Safe in the Sun What do we tell students in PE class? More than 20 minutes of sun exposure requires sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. Seek shade especially between 10 am and 4 pm. Dont let hazy days fool you. Reapply at least every 2 hours. Wear protective clothing, hats and glasses.
How do I protect myself from UV rays? You dont have to avoid sunlight completely, and it would be unwise to reduce your level of activity by avoiding the outdoors, because physical activity is important for good health. But too much sunlight can be harmful. There are some steps you can take to limit your exposure to UV rays. Some people think about sun protection only when they spend a day at the lake, beach, or pool. But sun exposure adds up day after day, and it happens every time you are in the sun. If you are going to be in the sun, Slip! Slop! Slap! and Wrap is a catch phrase that can help you remember some of the key steps you can take to protect yourself from UV rays: Slip on a shirt. Slop on sunscreen. Slap on a hat. Wrap on sunglasses to protect the eyes and sensitive skin around them.
