Living in “The Valley of the Sun,” we can enjoy sunny days year-round. No matter where you live or work, most of us are exposed to sunlight daily. Protection from the effects of ultraviolet radiation is important to maintaining healthy skin.
Limit your time in the sun during peak UV hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Apply 30+ SPF sunscreen daily. Apply a higher SPF sunscreen and reapply it every 2 hours if you are going to be outdoors or working outside. Cover up with a wide-brimmed hat, sun-protective clothing and sunglasses. Be sure that children are protected from the sun, too.
For more advice and recommendations about sunscreen, ask our expert providers when you are in for your next visit.
