Comments on: Question of the Week: What do you do to be SunWise and protect yourself from overexposure to the sun? http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/05/qotw-2010-fry-day/ The EPA Blog Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:58:31 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Anonymous http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/05/qotw-2010-fry-day/#comment-19452 Thu, 30 May 2013 07:17:06 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=3068#comment-19452 Build up your sun exposure. Stay in the sun for about 10 minutes to start with and than slowly build it up. But just think logically, staying in the summer sun during the afternoon, increases the risk, so don’t sunbath to long than… Easy, just sunbath with caution.

Use sunscreen not just on beaches and pools but even on casual days. Make sure to follow the direction in the bottle for application. Use a wide brim hat to protect your neck as well. Use sunglasses with UVB and UVA protection lenses and most importantly stay away from the hottest hours of the day.

When my daughter and I do go into the sun we put shea butter on our hair and skin.

It’s better to keep the risk of cancer to zero.

Most people don’t consider the fact the the skin is an organ, and is directly affected by the other organs in the body. The higher occurrences of skin cancer may very well be diet related. I was looking up psoriasis pictures online, and psoriasis, which we know presents as a skin rash is actually an immune response. So it would not be a far leap to think that something else is causing the skin cancer that is not related to the skin itself. Just a thought.

Using a good quality umbrella protects from over exposure to sunlight. Also use a good quality sunglasses for protecting your eyes from harmful UV Rays.
